FAQs

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME WE HAVE BECOME VIKINGS?

When Jason wanted to start his own creative shop, he wanted a name that set him apart from other creative shops. He looked toward the Vikings culture after learning the Vikings had invented the term "branding" while they branded their family crest into swords and ships - looking at our society, design is everywhere, from the coffee we drink to who we vote for, "We Have Become Vikings."
