Our People Make Us What We Are
We are celebrating our silver anniversary. What has been the most important constant over these 25 years? Our interactions with others and our unrivalled commitment, which have shaped Unic from day one. Countless people have been a part of Unic’s journey. They have made Unic what it is today and created some very memorable stories along the way:
The time when one of our servers had to be salvaged in rubber boats when the Matte quarter in Bern was flooded, the misunderstandings during pitches due to different dialects and the many lifelong friendships. Our people at Unic tell their own stories:
25 stories for 25 years of Unic. It is the people who have helped to shape Unic and who have written unforgettable stories in the process. Every week until the end of the year, we will publish a new personal anecdote from our employees.
Writing Web History Together
Over the past two and a half decades, we have been able to contribute to a wonderful part of Swiss and German web history. We had a front-row seat at the fast-paced evolution of the digital cosmos, learning many valuable lessons – some of them the hard way. The one thing we never compromised on was fostering a long-term, respectful relationship with our customers. Some companies such as SBB, Swiss Post, BEKB and Jura have been with us for more than 20 years. We always aim to keep communication lines open and to communicate on an equal footing.
In 21 years of working together, we have implemented countless projects, discussed ideas and initiated thoughts for JURA Elektroapparate AG. A good time to look back on the years we have spent together.
For more than 20 years now, we have been supporting Swiss Post in all their digital endeavours. We have consulted, conceptualised, validated, designed, tested, analysed and developed for them. So far, we have implemented four relaunch projects and around 400 other projects for Swiss Post. And our journey continues.
The digitalisation of HORNBACH, initiated with Unic in 2009, wrote history, not just in terms of Unic locations. In this interview, Unic senior project manager David Spark tells us why this partnership has been such a success. He also explains how Unic’s customers participate in projects and turn their own ideas into reality.
Where We Come From and What Drives Us
From four founders in 1996 to four Master of Swiss Web awards in 2021: Where did we come from? What successes have we celebrated and what challenges have we overcome? What has made us laugh, what has made us argue? What changes has Unic undergone in a quarter of a century – growing from a small consulting firm to a full-service digital agency with 250 employees? Read more about this in our company history.
A quarter of a century – that is how long Unic has been around. A lot has happened since our beginnings in 1996. We have celebrated under confetti showers, laughed until our eyes watered, but also weathered a few storms. We have changed over time, but we’ve always stayed true to ourselves.
