Our values

Partners, not clients. Being client-first we treat our clients as our partners. This approach allows us to focus on building long-term relationships based on trust and mutual benefits.

Honesty. Being honest and open is our standard in communication at work and in everyday life. And we show that by being open to our peers starting from day one.

Passion, curiosity, growth. Three things that drive us forward and make us better with every complex task we solve and every new design we create. And we are willing to contribute to that.

Action and reaction. At Merge, we don’t wait until someone tells us what to do. Being experts in our fields, we go out and propose the solution first, and get feedback second.

Failures are fingerposts. To success. Those who fear making a mistake create with boundaries in mind. We promote out-of-box thinking under the supervision of a mentor to nourish creativity.
