About me

Duif & Bode – Since 1574.

With a name like Van Duyvenbode – consisting of the words ‘pigeon’ and ‘messenger’ – a passion for communication is almost inevitable. Especially since during the 1574 Spanish siege the carrier pigeons of Michel van Duyvenbode’s great great grandfather made communication possible between The Prince of Orange and the city of Leiden – but that’s ancient history. In modern times, Duif & Bode is flown in to develop creative communication concepts for acclaimed advertising agencies such as TBWA Neboko, Lemz, BBDO Amsterdam, BBDO Copenhagen, and VCCP London.
