INSTANT SUCCESS

More than 10’500 Beartooth units were sold during the pre-order campaign alone. This success propelled the startup into the top 1% of all fundraising campaigns. We helped beartooth with the storytelling of the crowdfunding campaign and built the beartooth visual communication standards manual.

BEARTOOTH COMMUNICATION

The Beartooth hardware automatically sets up its own communication infrastructure. By that any Beartooth user within range is able to communicate free and secure to individuals by voice or text.

CLOSE COLLABORATION

We designed the product closely together with the Beartooth engineers to ensure we can provide the tightest component package. Our constant engagement with the client improved the user experience and reduced the volume of the device by factor four.
