Web DevelopmentFrontend

We develop responsive, maintainable, fast and cutting-edge Frontend Experiences for the modern Web. To achieve these standards we make use of a broad spectrum of modern web technologies like Pug (HTML), SASS (+BEM), AngularJS, jQuery and professional workflow- & version-control tools like NPM, Gulp and Git.

App DevelopmentNative Mobile Apps

We code native & fluid mobile Apps for iOS, Android and Windows using the popular Ionic Framework and its vast library of native PlugIns. This ensures great compatibility with OS native User Experience features and habits. All while maintaining the app through one codebase. From whiteboard to appstore - one seamless process.

Serverless & ServersideBackend

We build Content Management Systems, serverside Software as well as Plugins & Themes for WordPress. We develop both classic solutions using PHP & mySQL and Progressive Web-Apps, SPAs and hybrid Apps using Realtime DB Systems like Firebase and MVC architecture style frameworks like AngularJS and Ionic.


Performance and the modern web go hand in hand. To create products that perform well on a multitude of devices & network conditions and thus enhance user experience, are standard work practice for us. Lightning fast above-the-fold loading, performance oriented workflow, GZIP- and CDN-Distribution of content are just some enhancements we implement.

Conception & DesignScreendesign

We design clean, sophisticated and friendly user interfaces and build interactive prototypes using state-of-the-art design tools. By doing iterativ design, we keep the customer in the loop throughout the design process, so feedback can be discussed and implemented on a regular basis.

Conception & DesignPrintdesign

From concept to final print, we design digital and analog print products like posters, flyers, business cards and magazines. For that we use industry standard desktop publishing and typesetting software. To guarantee the best possible print quality, we directly hand over the files to the printing company.
