Who we are
We mix creativity with business, tech expertise and truly innovative solutions.
While working with clients on building their brand and communication in B&T agency, we’ve noticed that sometimes even the best communication strategy of the most attractive brand doesn’t necessarily have to lead to success and growth on its own. And we realized that we can do so much more than that for our clients.
That’s why we’ve decided to establish B&T lab – innovation and business design studio focused on the development of profitable and successful business solutions.
Our goal is to help clients both big and small to transform their innovation initiatives from a game of random hits and misses to a radically impactful growth engine.
We go into every challenge equipped with an inventor’s spirit, customer obsession and ‘maker’s sense’ to ensure unique and enticing results.
Focus on people
We are by definition a lab, but a very humane, understandable and approachable one. You won’t find any lab coats here.
We believe failures are great for learning and sometimes even necessary on the way to success. And we are not afraid of them.
We approach clients’ businesses as if they were our own but we also relish in our outsider status which allows us to push boundaries and bring new perspective.
Honesty & transparency
We don’t believe in bullshitting. We are the first to say if we can’t do something or if something isn’t worth doing. We always stay for the results and we own them.
Meet the team
We are curious, passionate and fearless creatives, strategists, researchers and developers who love problem-solving using geeky experimental techniques to make the right things and make things right.
