About the Company


Creativity is the new combination of things to create something better.

So were we created: From a studio, agency, production, consulting office and a pool for great minds - for all kinds of visual and digital communication.

Founded by visual designers for film and animation we’re now a habitat for developers, UX specialists, VR/AR experts, writers and strategists. Waiting for you and your challenges. We know our own craft very well, but we are curious about your work and the world around you.

We believe that routine is the killer of creativity and we always have to try new technologies, ideas and ways to communicate. Therefore, we want to know the challenges in front of you and about those who will come in the future.

That’s why we are a curious company. It’s the stuff we don’t know yet, that drives us further. Ahead of others. All of us are constantly learning new technologies and meeting inspiring people to evolve our work to something unique.

Something that stands out. Something that’s INFECTED. Curious, too? Let’s get in touch.
