How to become a Strandrover

After years of full time work in agencies and start-ups, we decided to take a break. A break from the daily digital life in Berlin. Our destination of choice to find peace and quiet, was Western Australia. Never again did we see or meet so few people :D

The first official act in the new land was to buy a good old 1998 Landrover Discovery which carried us around lordfully until … well. Until we discovered that it's allowed to actually drive on beaches in Australia. What we didn't know is that you should reduce air pressure in your tires before doing so, because otherwise you're gonna get stuck in the beautiful white sand.

So after and during all this we decided to now call the Landrover, the Strandrover. Because you know, it got stranded :)

We eventually came back from Australia with our brand new design bureau called Strandrover, activated our network of web professionals from our Berlin days and set out to work on projects we care about.
