About

Always evolving

FunkyCorp has been driving creative change since our founding in 2002, when we brought major international brands to Japanese flip phones using i-mode technology.
We were born global, and we continue to bridge cultures and overcome language barriers. For nearly two decades, we have drawn on our design, system development, and branding experience to help our clients with their markets. We have become a trusted partner of luxury brands and government agencies — always evolving to offer the latest and very best solutions for our clients. We talk straight, support our ideas with data and conviction, and are passionate about what we do.
