Who we are

We are a truly global user experience design
and
development company.

  • Business & Service Model Design

    Our passion for digital products is end-to-end — and that includes the creation of smart business and service models around them. We think holistically. It's not just about pretty pixels, but the concept, the service, and all surrounding touchpoints. You come to us with an idea, we in turn improve it, and develop it into a real product. Not just an app.

  • User Experience Design

    A great user experience is one of the best competitive advantages that a company can have. We craft digital products across all screens and platforms, aiming to create magic for our users. That's what we design and code for. And we're only happy once the user's eyes are shining.

  • Data Visualization

    Our team of data visualization experts loves nothing more than to dive deep into sets of big data and discover underlying patterns. How to find the best ways to visualize stories that data tell, so that they are no longer complex but easy to understand? Don't worry. Our experts are already on their mission to create intuitive insights for the user.

  • Product Concept Creation

    Over the past years, we launched a whole array of products and learned what works — and what doesn't. Though the word 'experience' might sound a bit dusty, we have gathered so much that it would be foolish not to share it with our clients and partners. Besides, creating product concepts with a compelling value proposition is just something we love to do.

Offices
People
Projects

Working with us is simple. Whatever your business needs: we've got you covered. These are the four most common ways to collaborate with us, and they can be combined however needed.

  • Co-Venturing

    Today, companies are made up of ideas. You as a founder have to spend big money on much of the digital expertise out there. Don't do that. You do not want to run just a project, but rather a venture with long-term impact. Together with a team that shares your vision and passion for what you want to create. We are the right partner for you. Instead of just taking a project fee in exchange for services, we drastically reduce your initial investment by converting a part into equity. We share the risk, align our incentives, and become your co-founder and long-term partner—with all our expertise.

  • Retainer

    The retainer will be your tool of choice for recurring and unpredictable needs around our core competencies. We will have a solid yet flexible partnership allowing you to secure our expertise long-term to cover all of your requests that may arise. Need a designer this week and a developer next week? No worries! This way, you can either strengthen your internal digital team or outsource it completely, working with us as your digital partner.

  • Magic Sprint

    Having a vision is great. But how do you convince an investor of your venture idea? Or an internal stakeholder of your digital initiative? By showing them what this might look like, in a very concrete and straightforward way. We call this a Magic Sprint. You and our best people will do a focused conceptual and design sprint together. This includes user-needs driven ideation and refinement of concepts, creation of high-level wireframe click dummies, and a beautiful art direction: all you need to deliver magic and unlock that big budget.

Our client portfolio spans from co-venturing setups to enterprise projects. Here are some of the great companies we've been fortunate to work with.
