about us

the who and why of the databranch


Intertidal Agency is a network of amazing partners. We start with an initial project assessment and then put together a team with the right skillset for your job. Just like a superhero movie, except that all of our superheroes have legit useful powers and better dialogue. We’re always looking for new designers, scientists, writers, and data lovers so contact us if you want to be considered for future projects. Want to contract with a network member directly? Go for it. We believe there’s plenty of work to go around.

We operate as a 501(c)3 charitable organization, fiscally sponsored by Multiplier.
