art + copy

Dídima does the visuals and Dan handles the words. Unless it's Spanish.

spain + america

We combine sleek European design with blunt American idiocy. Dídima is from Asturias (northern Spain) while Dan hails from Florida (northern Cuba). 

work + life

We're both partners and life partners. As in, like, we're married. Most people say they couldn't imagine working with their significant other, but we can hardly imagine not doing it. 

dungeons + dragons

...is something else entirely and not really relevant here.

awards + accolades

Dan peaked when he won Best Writer at Felix A. Williams Elementary School in 1995. It had all been downhill from there, until he met Dídima and they teamed up to win a few advertising awards. While they've worked at The Brooklyn Brothers the agency has won Ad Age's Small Agency of the Year award. Also, people say we're nice?

experience + expertise

We're currently a Senior Creative Team at Rokkan in New York.

Previously we worked together at The Brooklyn Brothers for a good many years, and for a year at TAXI NY too. Before that, Dan interned at Campfire in NYC and then spent a year as a junior at Arnold Boston, while Dídima did freelance work. We first met and worked together in portfolio school though, at Atlanta's Creative Circus.
