We are young and hyperactive

A crazy mix of talented individualists, doing their jobs with a lot of fun and passion. young and hyperactive’s vision is clear and simple: We wanna make it better than our competition. Over last years we were able work with a lot of great clients by following this simple intent. In our opinion being honest with our clients and gaining their trust is just the best base for every successful collaboration. Flat hierarchies and a family-like team creates the space we need for creative ideas and undiscovered potential.

„Webdesign is like gourmet kitchen. Only a well balanced composition and a bit of improvisation guarantee an unforgettable user experience.“

Johann, our top chef in contemporary web-cuisine made a rocket-like rise from commis to Maître de Web. If he doesn’t swing a wooden spoon  he’s trying to decode an all-encompassing Theory of Everything by watching the stars – we don’t want to reveal too much at this point, but we can say it will probably start with 11010010010110011!

Our Values

IT’S NOT HOW GOOD YOU ARE, IT’S HOW GOOD YOU WANT TO BE.

— Paul Arden, Creative Director

Keep it simple, dude

Simplicity is beautiful. By thinking minimalistic we don’t only want to create better products - it also aims to straightforward collaboration with our clients - by optimizing our processes for even better results.

Make it better, every day

We’re not afraid of facing big challenges on a daily basis in order to find new solutions to old problems.

Stay small and agil

Fast growing agencies tend to fail in the pressure of accepting more and more projects to keep going. We prefer to grow slowly but consciously and so we like to consider carefully which clients we want to work with.

Find great people to work with

We want to work with talented folks in a respectful, inspiring and motivating surrounding. Every single team member leaves its mark on the culture and values of young and hyperactive.

Built for humans

Our main object isn’t only to satisfy Google - because in the end it’ll be humans who are using our products.

Quality over Quantity

It’s not all about quantity but the quality of a project! We like to produce high quality solutions instead of cranking out low-grade ideas.

Deliver more value

We always want to make our clients understand that being a designer means more to us than changing colors and fonts. Having a great impact on user behaviour and their decisions is also part of the job - and it’s what we are doing really good.

Profit, but not for profit’s sake

Like every company thinking economically is part of the game. We don’t think about profit for money’s sake but to keep our freedom and flexibility to work with a great team and to reach young and hyperactive’s vision.

Love what you do

Passion is the key to success! We support our team’s ideas and projects, let them go wild and prove themselves.
