We are put into this world to engage and excite your customers with innovative digital user experiences
Everything gets digitized. There is no industry or job that is not constantly challenged or redefined. With infinite possibilities and limited resources, the most important task will be to choose the right project.
You bring the challenge and your domain knowledge. We bring design, technology, and 24 years of experience. We have a strong position and solid experience in eight different areas.
At Dwarf we have a tech stack that we have promised each other and our customers that we master. We have also promised each other that it is always the specific tasks that control which parts of our tech stack will be in play and that we will turn down tasks that are on the edge of or outside our expertise. Our Primary Tech Stack aims are finely tuned to enable us to help our clients build digital solutions that live up to the standards of 2023. The stack has been carefully put together so that we can produce scaleable and performance-friendly technical setups without compromising, which allows us to support whatever future needs our clients might have. The stack is ongoingly reevaluated to ensure that we follow the countless possibilities of creating the best in class digital experiences.
Laravel is the most modern and stable PHP framework on the market. Laravel comes with an endless list of possibilities. We use Laravel when we are building integrations to other systems if we need a database, RESTFul API's, or a Back Office Admin Panel that stretches out over the normal CMS functionality.
Drupal has been on the market for a long time and is by far the most mature developer-faced CMS out there. A developer-faced CMS enables us to integrate and change functionality in order to build the functionality that the Editor needs. Drupal comes out of the box with a large list of expected CMS features.

A good tool is half the work - not least for digital craftsmen. That's why we change tools when something smarter, faster, and more targeted comes to the digital industry. We still use Photoshop occasionally in Design – or Basecamp for project management, if we're forced to do so by a client. But speed, quality, and tools are intertwined.
If you'd asked us a few years ago, we'd probably have sung a whole story about Sketch - and how that tool was a huge advance in digital UX and design processes. But now there's "a new kid on the block," Figma. It may be about the same as Sketch – but has peaked with a much, much better solution for real-time online collaboration. If you take Office365 and...
... oh no, it's SO much smoother than '365 (but we use that too because Excel is still the world's best spreadsheet)
Adobe Creative Cloud
At Dwarf we value design and creativity highly, that’s why we are working with the entire Adobe CC suite. We love to let our creativity run loose when we are creating identities, motion graphics, and much more, and with Adobe we can ensure that we deliver high-quality designs that match our customers' needs and desires as well as something we can be proud to deliver.
Pen & Paper
... whiteboard and markers or post-its. Traditional and physical tools can do something when it comes to idea generation, co-creation, and sparring. Speed, no screen, plenty of space. and 100% concurrency. You can draw a consensus, an overview, and new ideas.
Yes, it is really popular in our industry and at Dwarf as well. "Structured and lightning-fast anarchy with an open API." Just for all the tech geeks. We use it for all internal digital communication and we use it together with customers to keep the "loose" dialogue in one place. We have tied it together with everything from our hourly control to our corona vent routines.
You had ONE job! There are many digital solutions that try to solve all problems at once. Not Dropbox. It solves exactly one task: Saving files in the cloud, and it does it superbly: Simple, fast, and reliable. A nice little role model.
We are constantly trying to optimize how many hours we spend on a project that actually "lands in the product". There is always a need for management and project management. And creative solutions cannot be solved 100% predictably and linearly. But it's still about getting "more hot hands to the product" and minimizing bureaucracy and pseudo-processes. Zenhub/Github binds our code management and deployment effectively together.
