Founded 2005, Dutch Uncle is an award winning creative management agency with offices in London, New York and Tokyo. We represent and source creative talent for companies looking to commission illustration, design, animation and moving image.

Our client base is worldwide and the artists, illustrators and designers we represent come from either ends of the world with those situated in sunny San Francisco to those on the other side of the globe residing in the fast paced visual capital of the world, Tokyo.

Our relationships with our artists, clients and staff rely on friendships formed with common incentives and collective attitudes.

DU Definition: 'A Dutch Uncle insists on candor, honesty, truthfulness, and asks the tough moral and ethical questions -- before anyone else does. You can be a Dutch Uncle if you care enough about other people and they know you care.'

Aesthetic Apparatus

Often considered Minneapolis' best totally unknown design super team, Aesthetic Apparatus was founded around 1999 in Madison, Wisconsin by Dan Ibarra and Michael Byzewski as a fun side project from their "real" jobs. Over the years their limited edition, screen printed concert posters have secretly snuck into the hearts and minds of a small, rather silent group of socially awkward music and design nerds.
