Moritz Klack and Christopher Möller met when they started their studies of Media and Computer Science in Berlin. During their studies, both of them started working as web developers for the German daily newspaper "Welt". Besides that they worked together on small side projects. Through these activities they found out that their common interest in journalism could be combined with their work as web developers.
Around the same time they started developing interactive visualizations for the Berliner Morgenpost, which was a pioneer in data journalism in Germany at the time. After further projects in that field, they decided to found an agency for data visualization after finishing their studies.
When webkid was founded in 2014, their first projects were almost exclusively developed for their former employers "Welt" and "Berliner Morgenpost". Through their experience of working in the newsroom they adapted their working methods to the requirements of journalists. Other news organisations quickly became aware of webkid and thus the range of projects increased.
Some of the projects they have been involved in have won prestigious awards, which has drawn the attention of clients from other areas as well. This gives webkid the opportunity to constantly expand their portfolio and to work on exciting new projects.
