    What's your plan for finding clients?

      We have a few small projects going on at the moment. Apart from that we are meeting some interesting people in Munich and all around that we could possibly work together. Another thing we would like to do is to help the community in Munich bringing workshops and talks to clients and other professionals in the area.

        Would you be willing to tell me more? The reason I'm asking is we're stuck in a position where we've outgrown our clients from the freelance days, and have no (working) strategies to pursue new ones.

    Love this! Quick question as I'm interested in the "starting an agency" side of things:

    Any reason for 6 founders?

      We needed to have a team able to handle every project. It was a natural process that started at Hyper Island and we got together as a very diverse team with different backgrounds and 6 was just the right number to get started.

      We were able to handle all the projects on our own from Research phase to prototyping and production. In the middle of the process we were able to divide the team in couples and prototype different ideas for example.

      But every agency has a different story i guess. :)

    Nice site! Especially like the scroll reveal effect.

    But on smaller screens it gets way too crowded imo. It has too much elements and lacks whitespace. On 1024 resolution for example some elements overlap each other in a way it becomes really messy.

    That's a really great website guys. Love the way your team has formed(6 different passports) and the philosophy behind your work.

    Congrats guys. When I discovered Hyper Island a while back, I quickly regretted choosing the more traditional academic route... it sounds so legit.

    Super fun to read about the team - six different passports :-)

      Yeah Hyper Island really opened a lot of doors to me and completely changed the way I work. We definitely want to share that mindset as much as we can from now on!
