About Us

dandelion + burdock is a digital design and technology company with a unique constellation of specialised departments: animation & motion graphics, web & interactive, and experiential events. We actively seek projects that integrate these three disciplines and we excel at creating unprecedented solutions to complex technical problems in special event scenarios.

We are one of the foremost leaders and pioneers in projection mapping - the art of projecting onto 3d surfaces such as buildings, cars, models, caves, etc. We have projected content onto some of the world's most iconic structures, including Buckingham Palace, The Guggenheim Museum, and the Hoover Dam.

We are a small dedicated group of creatives and technical experts. We like it this way because it allows us to communicate openly as a team, integrate easily into existing client workflows and get things done in the shortest possible time.
