We design and build intelligent apps and websites

Bakken & Bæck is a digital agency with offices in Norway and Germany. We help our clients build or improve applications for all platforms and screen sizes.

About

We are passionate about helping ambitious companies create new digital products and services. 

We believe in the importance of a strong relationship with our clients, and a key factor to this is working closely together over time. Our team of designers and developers are specialized in everything from crafting elegant interfaces and user experiences, to building complex data-driven services built on advanced artificial intelligence.

When we're not doing client work, we spend our time building new products and services. We believe this is a strategic advantage that helps us stay on top our game. As a result of this, we have recently launched Orbit and Wake.

We have worked with clients of all shapes and sizes — in a broad range of industries. We also advise early stage startups and have worked with entrepreneurs out of Stanford, MIT and NTNU, including some who have received funding from top-tier investors such as Khosla Ventures, Sequoia Capital and Y-Combinator.

Approach

We conceive, design and develop digital products and services. Regardless of the complexity of the problems we’re solving, we always aim to balance the client's business goals with a great user experience. We believe the key to building rapid and long lasting success often lies in this intersection.

As no two projects are alike, we have built a diverse team of designers, developers, QA specialists and project managers, to make sure that we can meet any challenge:

  • 1Explore ideas

    We can help you explore and validate your ideas, and quickly realize them into working concepts and prototypes.

  • 2Build a new product

    We will help you create something truly new and unique, whether it’s a new website, app or startup venture.

  • 3Enhance an existing product

    You already have a site or an app that needs improvement. Our team can help you take your product to the next level.

All projects we undertake are founded on our shared passion for design and our ambition of pushing the limits of technology. Our designers strive to create beautiful experiences, down to every last detail, and our engineers specialize in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technology.

People

Our team consists of generalists and specialists within fields as diverse as interaction design, graphic design, animation, interface design, front- and back-end development, as well as artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced algorithms.

The company was founded in 2011 by Tobias Bæck and Johan Bakken. With offices in Oslo, Norway and Bonn, Germany and clients from Oslo, London, San Francisco, New York, Stockholm and Seoul, we like to think of ourselves as a global agency.
