The official mascot of Japan’s public broadcasting company NHK since 1998, Domo’s saw-like teeth and uniquely ineffable facial expression has captured the hearts of millions, as can be seen in the countless fan-made memes, images and stop-motion animation videos sprawling the Internet. Merchandise sales through Target, 7-Eleven, and other major corporate entities are only helping to boost Domo’s popularity beyond the virtual realm, with many industry insiders predicting that this fun-loving furry creature will soon become a global household name. We are proud to have teamed up with Domo in order to make that happen.
