Benedikt Rottstegge

Head of Systems and Semicolons

Stella Friedenberger

Head of Constructs and Contemplation

We are a small and versatile studio, combining two different and unique skill sets and functioning like a MAN-MACHINE (obvious homage to Kraftwerk). To realize projects of varying scales, we collaborate with our solid and ever-growing network of freelance colleagues. Both of us have a strong background in graphic design and arts. Stella's additional strategy and UX/UI focus makes her develop sturdy concepts for every possible medium, whereas Bene's development skills enable him to bring absolutely every system into being.

We believe that designing in knowledge of development (and the other way around) is key! We combine an artistic approach to design and use code as a tool to develop its digital infrastructures.


With 5+ years experience in interface design and development, we create exciting, unusual, strong and informative identities and digital experiences.

Our interdisciplinary, fluid practice allows us to lead projects seamlessly all the way from initial concept, through design and development to launch.
