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.
