Welcome

We are an information design agency based in Basel. Our aim is to simplify, consolidate and restructure complex information with a creative, thoughtful and attractive design approach. We provide comprehensive, long-lasting and information-oriented communication solutions. We continuously explore and develop new forms of design by analyzing, structuring and contextualizing data. Our interdisciplinary and intercultural team has a strong emphasis on aesthetics; because we know that well processed and consciously designed information offers a better perception and insight for both internal and external stakeholders. Through an aesthetically well-wrought design it is possible to create experiences that visualize complex information and make it tangible and holistic – either analog or digital.

One agency, five languages

Grüezi! Guten Tag! Hello! Iyi günler! Laba diena! Dobar dan! With our intercultural team you can communicate in your own language – be it in English, German, Turkish, Lithuanian or Croatian. Additionally, we can discuss with you lively in French, Spanish or Italian.
