about us.

simple words and clear explanations, that’s what we believe in at funk-e

We really don’t like buzzwords or vague slogans. Flexible? Transparent? That doesn’t mean anything. And how do you visualize transparency? With nothing? Nah, we’d rather use concrete and simple words to get a clear explanation. Of course with a lot of humor. Whether it’s in the explanimation or infographic, or in the way we make them. Business has to be fun.

From the heart of Rotterdam and Düsseldorf we’ve made over 1.200 animations! 

And for really cool clients too, like Coca-Cola, NASA, Bayer and Deloitte.

When you have an animation made by Funk-e, our team of 30 cool dudes and chicks do everything to make your video awesome. We are design nerds, grow like crazy and don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Funk-e is part of the Empire of Awesome, with the masterplan to make the world a cooler place.
