People remember the unexpected.

At WONGDOODY we find the overlooked truths that shift conversations, shatter expectations and disrupt convention. We’re looking for clients brave enough to join us and smart enough to know this is the only way to break through and get people to buy things.

WONGDOODY was founded in 1993. Our 150 employees in Seattle and LA use the unexpected to get some pretty remarkable results for our clients. Along the way, we’ve become one of the most awarded independent advertising agencies on the West Coast, as well as one of the best places to work.
