CORKBOARD

Corkboard is a collective of new happenings, exciting projects, and odd ball events that make Flying Cork the cat’s meow. We don’t live in the tereny of agency life, and our clients reap the benefits of our passion.

We make sure that every team member understands that great work comes from living a great life, and being part of a team is a mutual privilege that we don’t take lightly.

We want our team members to be happy, healthy, and balanced inside and outside the walls of Flying Cork. There is no business without the special people who make it one.

We want our clients and partners to understand that we’re on their side, and that our mission is to gain perspective and understanding so we can help them reach their goals.

At the end of the day, we want to share in the success with our team members and clients… and toast to a job well done. We want to show who we are, why we do what we do, and how it our passion makes us not just an agency, but a partner.
