Our Mission
  • Games as a Marketing Instrument

    Games are a universal part of the human experience. Gamers subject themselves to game rules through their own free will for the sake of fun, relaxation, the sense of achievement and nothing less than self-affirmation. In contrast to traditional marketing techniques, which are most of the time perceived as a disruption or even an annoyance, a well-designed game can excite, involve, fascinate and bond customers to your brand. Just imagine people interacting voluntarily and intensely with your brand, product or key message; not just for seconds (until they click the ad away) but for several minutes, enjoying the experience, willing to spread the word, to share the link or to post results in social networks. That's what a good game can do, if it's tailored to your target group's mood, needs, preferences and lifestyle.

  • Gamification = User Motivation

    We know that gamification is a buzzword. Nonetheless, it's a fascinating opportunity to trigger certain actions or even effect behavioural change by using game-like systems for encouragement and reward. The application of game principles to non-game contexts offers the potential to engage visitors or customers to repeatedly perform activities that would usually be considered as unpleasant. It's a way of user experience design that attaches greater weight to intrinsic motivational mechanisms than to real-world incentives. The fields of application range from learning, recruitment, productivity and corporate responsibility to change management, CRM and loyalty programs.

  • User Experience Design

    UX design nowadays is the commonly used term to describe a user-centred approach to design, test and improve the usability of interactive applications. Using a menu, website, app or touch display should work easy, fast and predictably. But still, evoking the perception "oh, this works as I expected it" is a special art. It requires exceptional craft skills and a passion for empathizing with the demands, experiences and cognitive preconditions of potential users. Effective and targeted UX design puts general and specific user needs in balance with our client's overall marketing strategy, communication goals or campaign purpose.

  • Prototyping and Concept Developement

    We understand agile production processes as an opportunity to verify initial ideas using touchable prototypes at an early stage. In our experience, clients feel much more confident and involved if key interactions can be experienced instead of just being described. Nevertheless a comprehensive concept document that incorporates all features, their interdependencies and required assets sets the ground for verifiable agreements concerning budget, timing and releases. Prototype and concept enable all involved parties to commit to a realistic shared vision before the production process actually begins.
