Boutique Call: Walrus (Ed’s note: Kookookachoo?)

Walrus2.png

Agency/Location: Walrus, New York, New York (walrusnyc dot com).

Motto: “Sadly, we are motto-less.”

Founded: In 2005 by a bunch of ex-staffers from Mad Dogs & Englishmen.

About: “We think the world has a love-hate relationship with
advertising, and ad agencies. Mostly they hate it, but every once in a
while they’ll see something that they love. We believe that one loved
ad is worth more than 100 hated ones. Maybe that’s our motto…”

Clients: Grand Marnier, Radar Magazine, Food Bank for New York City, Very Short List, CW-X Conditioning Wear, Howard Stern On Demand, Return Path, 23/6.com, and more.

Something Fun: They have a real, live animatronic spokes-walrus AND a shaveable beaver on their site.
