Team

meet some of the team

It started in 1999 with four people and a staffie.

20 years after we started, we still have a boutique, nothing is impossible, start-up mentality. We’re a mixed bunch of thinkers and day dreamers, inquisitors and inventors, technicians and creators, innocents and experts. We never take ourselves too seriously and we like to have a good time along the way. Above all, we’re a family so we care for each other as much as we care for the work.
