We Make Fun
When we worked at The Onion, we learned that humor combined with a creative use of technology can affect the way people understand ideas and interact with the world. With that understanding and our backgrounds in journalism, design, strategy, and digital product development, we bought a domain name inspired by the words of a Roman poet. Now is the part where we exchange goods and services for money.
Writing, video, audio, live events, animation, social media, skywriting, tackling people in the street and shouting at them about the time we threw up in front of the whole class in third grade... Storytelling is core to our identity. Throughout everything we do, you’ll find strong narratives and themes revolving around fun, humor, or time traveling livestock.
As much as we hope to bring compelling concepts to life, we aim to help others do the same. Storytellers are only half our equation, as pairing them with makers and engineers can help lead to a reimagination of comedy, creativity, and how good ideas are ushered into the world.
Why Cultivated Wit?
Our company’s name stems from the Roman poet Horace, who wrote: “A cultivated wit, one that badgers less, can persuade all the more. Artful ridicule can address contentious issues more competently and vigorously than can severity alone.” Between that message and a shared vision of global conquest, we feel rather connected to the Romans.
