We strategise, design and build products and services that add value to people's lives through fulfilling a need or satisfying a desire.

Our purpose is to establish new businesses making a social difference.

Through insights, future vision and human-centric design - we empower people, create change and instigate shared experiences that deliver tangible results.

Why are we making Kahoot!? A segment from Co-founder Johan Brand's keynote at Helsinki Design Week 2012

We take a holistic approach...

  • Creative strategy to make our product experience logical and easy to interact with.
  • User interface design that is tangible, practical and elegant, which guides the user's journey with pixel-perfect clarity.
  • Branding to create emotionally engaging interactions that meet business objectives.

…which produces results like these.
