25 years of innovation and UX: Happy Birthday UID!
We are celebrating 25 years of UID! We have been supporting our clients with customized UX services for a quarter of a century. We are incredibly proud of over 4500 UX projects and are optimistic about the future: because the demand for human-centered design remains high. Take a look at some great UID moments from 25 years.
In November 1998, Franz Koller and Dr. Claus Görner founded UID, one of the first service providers for software, design and usability. At first, usability was still a foreign concept for many people. But success was not long in coming: soon a growing team in four offices was supporting a wide variety of customers worldwide in the design of intuitive user interfaces.
Word spread about the advantages of user-friendly operation and more and more manufacturers recognized its relevance. New aspects such as user experience and aesthetics found their way into our work.
They still exist today: The classic projects based on a user-centered approach. However, we are also increasingly focusing on strategic consulting around UX: How do companies master the human-centered, digital transformation? How can UX be integrated at all levels of a company?
This is what our UX consultants work on every day with experience, motivation and passion. Excited and full of drive, we are now looking to the future: we want to help shape technological change and make the world of tomorrow simpler and more aesthetic.
For our customers, we put people at the center of our work, just as we did 25 years ago. Since the beginning of the year, we have been part of the BAYOONET Group - and thus have strong partner companies at our side for the next 25 years.
On the occasion of our anniversary, we would like to thank everyone who has accompanied UID on its journey. Whether customers, partners or (former) employees - you are great! Thank you for your commitment to UID!
We dug deep into our archives and put together a few impressions - which was really difficult given the countless team events, successes and highlights. Where have you come into contact with UID over the last 25 years?
