About us


Highest Quality

“The details aren’t the details – they make the design” is what Charles Eames said already. We agree and we strongly work with this assumption in our minds. We’re not happy before everything is perfect.



Design is about solving problems. We believe a good designer needs to be able to think like someone else does. We create concepts and strategies to communicate the right things at the right time at the right place in the right way. “We’re not only artists.” This is one of our strongest competences.


Keeping Track

We’re not specialized too much and thus always have an eye for all different media. We don’t close our minds to new things and always keep ourselves up to date and learn the newest insights about design rules, theory and design knowledge.

What we offer

We offer a wide variety of design disciplines without loosing the eye and love for the details. We care for creating a consistent design language through all your communication channels.

The upstructers

upstruct was founded by Toni Kebe and Åsmund Vonheim Seip in summer 2005 in Berlin. After the first year together, Åsmund moved back to his homeland, Norway, and opend a second studio in Oslo. upstruct berlin oslo was born. Over the years both studios grew together, employing up to 6 workers, the clients became numerous and the projects bigger.

Due to strategic realignment, the Oslo studio had to be closed in 2010. Consequently the focus was back in Berlin, where it all began. Lars Trautmann is a part of the Berlin studio since 2008 and became a partner in 2011.
