Cold Turkey was started by two guys – a writer and an art director. We met out and about in the advertising industry, (at another agency in fact). And while we really liked what we were doing, we knew we wanted to do it on our own terms. So we decided to open our own agency, build our own client list and make our own mark. While it has truly been a great experience, we did learn one lesson… When you have your own business and you steal pens from the office, you’re really only stealing from yourself.


As far as the name Cold Turkey goes, feel free to ask. It’s one of those inside jokes that is insanely funny to us, but will probably leave you scratching your head and wondering what these guys were high on when they thought this was clever. The answer is, tar fumes.
