At DUMBO you will work together with the partners and learn from each other's experience. We do not distinguish between concept and design or form and function. We create a digital product experience that is characterized by a multidisciplinary understanding of information architecture, visual design, user experience design, user interface design and programming. As part of the team, you're right in the middle of it all. Let’s shape real products together.

The work of a designer usually has a direct, noticeable effect. That includes all design disciplines, of course. In my opinion, this impact is the most apparent in UX design. That’s why this area especially intrigues me.
Even before I visited DUMBO for the first time, I found it interesting that their website had a high standard. For their own work, but also for the projects they are working on. Besides that, what convinced me was the relaxed and friendly atmosphere I experienced during my first visit.
I learned not to go the easy way and justify poor design with »there’s no other way«.
I’ve learned to approach the design of screens very systematically.
The first design doesn’t have to be exactly on product level. It’s a waste of time to keep a work file meticulous.
The first Friday was a special day: A completed project was reviewed, giving me an ideal start. I got to know the team better and was fascinated by the stories about DUMBO’s past.
Robert & Felix are usually very busy, so at the beginning I often wasn’t sure if I bothered them when I asked for feedback or had questions. But that’s never the case, always ask.
I find it remarkable that nobody works on projects which will later be secretly swept under the carpet. Everything is optimally designed with love for every detail, and when it can be made better, they try to make it even better. But with all that, a solid, experienced and happy team is very important to Robert & Felix. And in my view, it really pays off.
