Strategy. With style.

Modern Animal is about challenging norms and doing work we're impressed by for clients we believe in.

We don't have a permanent office or set hours, so we can work intensively on projects at a lower cost without compromising quality. Our clients are start ups, newsmakers, creative teams and large organizations. Modern Animal is constantly honing our skills through travel, research, cross-training and experimental projects.

He has done field research on the mammals of North America and amongst indigenous societies in both North and South America, has taught ecological design to landscape architects, farmers, and urban planners, and has applied and developed design thinking as a discipline for business innovation in the manufacturing sector.

We love to do what we do

Modern Animal is a tiny army of hybrid thinkers—our strategists can use Illustrator, and our designers can make a spreadsheet. Here's some of our recent work.
