From the beginning to the present

Since 24 September 2012

Süss Jor

To celebrate our sixth anniversary, we decided to honour our roots in a very particular way. We all feel very closely tied to the far north – which is why our website appears completely in Low German on our birthday. The key element is the corporate history audio, spoken in Low German by our whole team. Parallel to this we have also published our clients’ congratulatory messages in Low German. After so much talking we more than deserved some refreshment, which we found in the shape of a delicious birthday meal at the Hafenküche.

“All good things come to those who wait” – and it’s true, considering that Timon did an internship with us over four years ago. In view of this, we are particularly pleased that you are now here to support us with web development. Welcome!

Mudflat hiking tour

For this year’s summer party we went off to the Nordstrandischmoor hallig. With great weather and in a cheery mood we spent a few hours in the Wattenmeer mudflats, including a delicious picnic on the hallig.

In the evening, having licked our wounds inflicted by the mussel shells, we retired to the park (though the hard core later carried on in the office) to enjoy a few drinks, Viking chess, witty discussions – and metre-pizza from Pizzateca Da Toni.

The corporate design magazine CO&CO is published four times a year to present the latest design solutions from the international corporate world.

Once again, we received an award – this time in the 100% magenta edition for the corporate design of the Technologiezentrum Flensburg.

CXI Brand talks 2018

Anne and Timon were at the CXI Brand Talks in wonderful Bielefeld on 15 June. At the biggest corporate and brand identity conference in Europe they visited numerous Brand Talks and came home to the agency with a lot of innovative and inspiring insights.

Frontend United 2018 | Utrecht

On the first weekend in June, Jan, Malte Riechmann and Sven made a short excursion into our neighbouring country – though for once not Denmark, but the Netherlands.

At Frontend United in Utrecht, together with developers from all over the world, they gained valuable insights into frontend developments such as progressive web apps, single page apps, frontend performance and other innovative areas.

TYPO 2018 Berlin

This weekend, Timon, Malte and Sebastian visited TYPO 2018 in Berlin. Three days packed full of interesting and informative talks centred on digitalisation, digital transformation mechanisms, big data, personal data, digital branding and analogue design.

Honey Bunny

The Easter Bunny also looked in on us at the weekend to hide some hejmonti Flensburg Honey – really delicious!

Passed with flying colours

Today Rune qualified as IT Specialist for Application Development with grade 1.6 – congratulations, Rune, a super achievement! We are delighted that having completed your training you will now be with us full-time.

beyond tellerrand (Munich)

Flo, Jöran and Sven at the first of this year’s beyond tellerrand in Munich – two days packed full of interesting lectures about design, web development, creativity and the networking of society and technological progress.


Anne Ahoy! With extensive professional experience under her belt, as of today Anne is supporting our graphic design team. We are happy to profit from your enthusiasm and enjoy even more diverse inspiration.


In future Jan will be commuting between the uni and Nordergraben 70 – welcome to visuellverstehen! We wish you a lot of fun in the field of web development.


Christmas greetings

This year we have once again swapped our digital tools for whisk and mixing bowl to conjure up delicious crispy chocolate cookies – because for us good taste is also important offline.

To visuellverstehen via Weilheim, Regensburg, Munich and Athens – a warm welcome, dear Melissa. We look forward to your support in our copywriting section.

First day at school

Today is Flemming’s first day at vocational college – naturally we couldn’t let him go without the traditional cornet of goodies; and of course we also wish him great fun and success.

The AgenturCamp (Munich)

Greetings from the Bavarian capital! Malte and Sören spent two interesting days at the AgenturCamp at Microsoft’s new Munich headquarters. They returned home with not just some special regional beers but also plenty of inspirational impulses for our daily work.

Open Friday

We held our first sipgate-inspired Open Friday, where we spent the whole day in small groups developing valuable ideas for visuellverstehen. A great day, and definitely not our last Open Friday!

Communicator, connoisseur, travel enthusiast – that is Malte, our new colleague responsible for customer care and project coordination. A staunch northerner, he brings with him a wealth of experience in agency work, and has in recent years supervised a wide range of projects. It’s good to have you with us!

TYPO3camp Hamburg

The weekend was all about Hashtag #t3chh. Malte, Rune, Sven and Flemming attended the TYPO3camp in Hamburg together, where they were able to follow a variety of interesting sessions.

We also gave a few talks, thus contributing on a variety subjects.

Five Years

What a great party that was! We opened the doors of our agency at 14:00, and were delighted to welcome all those who came to celebrate this special day with us – quite a few of whom stayed late into the night. By the end of the day our collection box was full to the brim: we were able to donate € 525 each to the Friends of Scheersberg (Förderverein Scheersberg e. V.) and Refugee Aid Flensburg (Flüchtlingshilfe Flensburg e. V.) gespendet werden.

Thank you very, very much for the numerous congratulations, presents and donations, and above all simply for being here – you made our anniversary an even better day.

Flensburg singt Sinatra

Eight soloists, three duet partners and the JazzcoastOrchestra are bringing Frank (The Voice) Sinatra’s hits to Flensburg – and as sponsor we are handling all the advertising material, social media support, PR and the website for this special event.

Two days ago Flemming started his training as an IT specialist for application development. We are already delighted with the great breath of fresh air you bring to the team, the IT knowledge you already have, and of course the fact that you speak fluent Low German as well.

Or as you “Plattdeutsch” speakers would put it:
“Dann man tau, schön dat du dorbie bist.”

The AgenturCamp (Dusseldorf)

The two-day AgenturCamp in Dusseldorf was held under the motto “Agencies on the Upswing!”. Sören attended on our behalf and had plenty of interesting discussions from which he gleaned a lot of information about pricing, lean methods and agile working in a team – subjects whose implementation we are currently working on and will continue to do in future.

As well as a number of agency representatives, our hosting partner Mittwald CM Service was also in attendance.

Sailing trip

This year we had our summer party on the deck of the “Bodil”, out in rough seas – and the only thing that could ward off seasickness was of course a bottle or two of Flens. Many thanks to Uwe and Hark for a great trip!

TYPO3 v8 LTS Release Party (Flensburg)

A group of Flensburg TYPO3 web developers met at visuellverstehen for the launch of Version 8 – thanks for the interesting exchange of ideas and opinions.


From Kassel to Flensburg – that means swapping Hütt for Flens, Ahle Sausage for fish buns, and Habichtswald for the Baltic. We’re pleased to welcome your graphic design experience and expertise.

Christmas greetings

Our confectionery has in the meantime gained quite a reputation for refined communication. This year, each department conjured up its own delicious filled chocolate, and these ended up in a stamped tin under your Christmas tree. We wish you bon appetit and a very Merry Christmas.

Hello World!

Here you’ll find information about our latest projects, services and about us – adaptable, informative and communicative.

The Beginning

We discovered our passion for programming and designing very early, and as teenagers we volunteered to design logos, leaflets and websites for our local sports club. That also gave us a great insight into working as part of a team. We got so much praise and encouragement from the people we worked with that we decided to make a career of developing and designing websites. We combined college and work, studying, developing and designing in parallel. After graduation we knew there was only one way ahead for us: starting a company that brought together our ideas, abilities and passion for our work.

Down to the minutest detail

True diligence

With every project we pay great attention to details and individual characteristics right from the start. The result can only work and be convincing if each and every component is apt and well thought-out.
