This is us

What started in 2018 with Anna-Marie and David as a couple in their own living room is now a small Münster-based start-up with a real leevje family.

    Around Anna-Marie and David the team is growing more and more. Currently, our team consists of 20 wonderful people. Things are always turbulent in our office, no two days are the same.
      While new designs are created in one corner, the next photo shoot is planned in the other and coffee is made in the kitchen. Teamwork counts for us, one can always rely on the other.
