Hey, great to meet you!

We founded Elixel in 2012 with a dream of bringing ideas to life. Over the years we have supported a range of inspiring clients; from a wedding stationary startup to multinational financial institutions. Working together we have helped them to truly understand their audience and create meaningful products and services.

The Elixel mission

What really gets us going

Enterprise has always been high on the list of priorities for our founders since leaving University and setting up Elixel. That spirit has never left, and we love seeing adventurous businesses thrive.

In order to make this happen we are building a team of down to earth, curious, hungry and forward thinking creators. Enabling us to partner and support you to solve problems, launch products and reach the ambitious goals you set yourselves.

We are on a mission to make solving problems enjoyable, engaging and impactful. Focusing on making the lives of people easier, one product at a time. So if we can help you make life easier, safer, more informative or more fun, especially if there's some kind of digital product in mind, count us in!
