Who we are

Computed·By brings together computer scientists and interaction designers. Our technological expertise combined with our project managers’ know-how and a network of art directors enables us to develop complex projects for both public institutions and private companies.

Methodology

Our working methodology is based on agility and scalability. We work closely with our clients' art directors, graphic designers and project managers to develop the project according to their needs and expectations

Digital Sustainability

Coding, plugin and script efficiency. Our websites are tailor-made. Code and images are heavily optimised, so no unnecessary bloated stuff is being pulled on visit. All of this have a huge impact on the speed of a webpage which eventually affects the general user experience.

Pages are rendered statically on the server-side which means browsers can easily cache most of its content. This is fundamentally different to other web platforms which causes lots of computing power and energy waste each time a user interacts with the page.

We work closely with a Swiss hosting provider (Infomaniak) that uses 100% renewable energy and has certified green data centers.
