Red Dot: Agency of the Year 2023


When Thomas Clever and Gert Franke founded their agency in 2008, no one could have foreseen that data visualisation would become a defining topic of our time.

Therefore, the task at the beginning was to convince clients of this creative tool and its potential. Ultimately, designers who are passionate about what they do – a passion for complexity and unravelling that complexity, which the two founders share with their now more than 40 employees – simply let great solutions speak for themselves.

“Our job is to help people understand the world around them.”

– Thomas Clever and Gert Franke, founder of CLEVER°FRANKE
