Since its foundation in 2014, webkid has built and maintained a good reputation in the field of interactive news. We have worked with many renowned media outlets such as The Financial Times, Zeit Online and Berliner Morgenpost.
Hi, we are webkid!
Moritz Klack and Christopher Möller met when they studied Media and Computer Science in Berlin. As students they both worked as developers for the German daily newspaper Welt. They also collaborated on small side projects. Through these activities they realized 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, a pioneer of data journalism in Germany. After graduation they founded webkid as an agency for data visualization in 2014.
The first webkid projects were almost exclusively developed for their former employers Welt and Berliner Morgenpost. Through their experience of working in the newsroom they were able to adapt their working methods to the requirements of journalists. Other news organizations 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 has given webkid the opportunity to constantly expand its portfolio and to work on exciting new projects.
Some of our work has been nominated for prestigious awards. Here is a selection of awards for our project collaborations.
