Understanding the past to build the future
We have been in UX for over 20 years and through that time, we have experienced ebbs and flows. Our first 10 years were like the famous “blue ocean”; UX was a new, growing business and we were right in the middle of it. Starting as a three-person shop, we grew to 60 people quickly (as SirValUse). We were UX evangelists and our footprint couldn’t be big enough.

One is a German cooporative (Genossenschaft), which makes the (re-) distribution of shares relatively easy and where all cooporate members have the same vote independent from the amount of shares they hold. This corporative is equally controlled by all employees.
