Bakken & Bæck



Rebranding an open source playground


Expo is a free and open source set of development libraries and services, which makes building apps easy, accessible and fun. It enables developers to build native apps that work across iOS and Android. Based on React Native, it’s quickly becoming a wildly popular tool, currently being used by over 400.000 developers.


We redesigned their online presence and helped them mature their website and identity. We picked a new typeface, defined a colour scheme, and designed a whole new website explaining what Expo is, what it enables you to do, and how to get started. We teamed up with Timo Kuilder to create a set of brand illustrations that make Expo feel accessible and fun; both for experienced developers, as for newcomers.

From apps to artificial intelligence, from brands to blockchain – we build it

As a tight-knit team of sixty engineers and designers1, we know how to build products from the ground up that stand the test of time.

With solid expertise in a wide range of industries and several PhDs in machine learning and artificial intelligence, we believe that there are no products we can't build.

Forming close relationships with ambitious companies outside of organisational bureaucracy, we like to get things done at full speed.

We do have a soft spot for the serendipitous path of discovery. That’s why we host An Interesting Day2, run stupid hackathons3, keep bees and make honey4.

Join us

We are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone has the freedom to thrive while being taken care of.
