They say that all jokes are half-meant. WuMo’s infographics on the other hand, are nothing but the truth, generously coated with humor and shaped into a graph to make them look scientific. WuMo is actually a contraction for the hilarious Danish duo Mikael Wulff and Anders Morgenthaler. They previously called themselves Wulffmorgenthaler, but realized that the name was too long and a bit of a mouthful to boot, so they shortened it. Mikael is a writer while Anders is an artist. Their sarcastically snarky ideas coupled with simplistic design has won them the affection of a lot of netizens out there. They started their rise to fame as cartoonists when they won a cartoon competition. It allowed them to have their work published for free in the local paper for a month. Their popularity soared and several years later, they’re regularly running a cartoon strip in the New York Times.
