Høst means harvest in Danish. To us, this means producing something new and vital — with a lot of hard work. It means going back to basics, finding ways to be more efficient and direct, and working toward a shared goal with a close-knit team.
In the design-agency world, a trend has emerged where a single company tries to do everything at once: the so-called "360" service model. We offer a different approach. We define the problem and search for the simplest solution. We walk around it, scrutinize it, dig until we’ve found the root. Sometimes we have to change direction, or re-think the problem entirely.
This requires focus, and trust. We treat our clients as close partners, working together as a single team. We treat every relationship as long-term: we consider how our work will grow alongside your organization. We want to build digital products and brands that are not only the best of their kind, but also have a life of their own.
What we do
We are a boutique creative and digital agency, with a diverse and multi-disciplinary portfolio that includes strategic design-thinking, UI/UX and complex knowledge management apps, branding, and editorial design.
We develop beautiful, effective, innovative, and strategically-aligned design solutions from beginning to end. We combine the critical thinking of a strategy consulting firm with the design culture of an award-winning agency. We specialize in supporting international development organizations, and we offer a unique depth of understanding of their mission and challenges.
