More about us
Feel free to further explore our wiki (the page you are currently on), which is our internal but also public knowledge base. We’ve created it mainly for all new people joining our team, but since this is a good way to get to know us, most of the information is accessible to everyone.
You might also get a feeling how it’s like to work with us from our social media channels: We share ideas and experiences on medium, photos on Instagram, loads of Gifs on tumblr and other things and links on twitter.
What would I be working on?
We aim to have a varied mix of projects, from different fields, with different clients and different challenges. We always try to learn something new and tackle causes we can get behind on. This will also involve our own products in the future.
Here are some current/past examples:
- a product to connect people with different political views and to enable global political debate, together with a German publishing house and funding from Google
- a mass-market fintech product; from positioning, through visual branding, interface design, user tests and development of the product itself, as well as the marketing site and a financial magazine
- the rebranding of a German shoe brand and their online shop
- the digital ecosystem, multiple games and the main web properties of energy-drink-manufacturer Red Bull
- websites for type designers, such as HvD Fonts
Don’t worry if you don’t have an up-to-date CV. We’ll get to know each other anyway. 😄
