Bumpy Brains

Our Story

Working together in a memory lab, Laura and Emily created countless whiteboard drawings and musings of the brain. Their zany brainy antics inspired them to create Bumpy Brains, and soon they were sharing their artisitic inclinations with other brain enthusiasts all over the world. Not long after, Daniel joined the team to program brains (see Mind Control).

We hope you enjoy our geeky humor!

It all starts with research!
