Office statement

We approach the web as a form of digital architecture: It shapes the defining communal spaces of our time. Building these spaces requires deep understanding and balanced regard of platform strategy, visual design, content, engineering and systems architecture.

In close collaboration with our clients, we are able to organize and integrate these disciplines. This leads us to simple, honest solutions that are true to their digital materials. Our websites communicate effectively and can be used without effort, following the natural flow of the web. We operate in a highly organized way, on budget and on time. In this sense, WAF GMBH proposes a more effective model for designing and implementing digital platforms.

The studio was founded as W.A.F. by Malte Müller and Andreas Lexa in 2011. It has since evolved into a design firm that has completed visual identities and websites for diverse international clients such as Artek, ADAY, Störmer Murphy Partners, MyTheresa, Kiko Kostadinov, Next Conference, Deutsche Telekom and Maharishi. As the digital arm of ACRONYM®, WAF GMBH provides visual design and technological direction to the brand.

Currently, the WAF GMBH is developing an immersive digital platform for Ensemble Resonanz, resident philharmonic orchestra of Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie, a companion application to Telekom Electronic Beats, as well as a visual design facelift for one of Germany's leading creative agencies.
