We are a full-service creative agencys pecialised in crafting human—centric digital experiences.

We are designers, strategists, researchers, animators, illustrators, developers, and project managers partnering with design leaders of tech brands and growing businesses to create simple, useful and scalable digital solutions.

We are a remote team with members and collaborators working together from Croatia, France, Philippines, Slovakia, Lithuania, United Kingdom, Netherlands, and the United States to provide a valuable global perspective on our work.

We translate research into solutions, crafting thoughtful and unified brands, apps, websites, interfaces and systems. Through challenging core assumptions, we shape the products and services that improve the lives of thousands every single day.

Our journey


We designed our way across 99designs and later on to the Dribbble Top 20 teams in the world. We've been privileged to work with startups, SME's, corporations and fortune 500 companies all over the world.

We are completely self-taught, meaning we had the opportunity to work on every level, experience all possible downfalls and stumble on each and every step of the way. Through the years we amassed valuable experiences on how not to manage projects and setup processes. That’s why we can guide and help our team members to grow in areas outside day to day production.

Our team


Our core team are based in Krk, Croatia, and we’re proud to say our clients come to us from all around the world. We work with them almost exclusively on a remote basis, something that’s never been as easy and efficient as it is today, thanks to our streamlined working processes.

The same goes for the BB Agency extended team — our international network of designers, strategists, product designers, UX researchers, animators, illustrators, developers and project managers who collaborate to execute projects and provide a valuable global perspective on our work.

We like to think this offers our clients a unique combination — service they can depend on, with the freedom to collaborate at scale.

Our design thinking


We shape brands through exploration and investigation, applying in-depth research to challenge assumptions at every turn.

We find research to be pivotal part of each and every project. Accumulating analytical data, reviewing and benchmarking competitors, defining user personas and their journeys, finding pain points and defining solutions that provide value through feasible improvements.

Living in a digital age the experience can sometimes be quite disconnected. That is why our designs while shaped by research and experience value human connection and always have users as the center point to our products.

We are inspired to create timeless and thoughtful designs that could stand the test of time and maintain their visual potency through past and future trends.
