Our Humble Beginnings
REFIVE Unveiled. Delve into the vibrant journey of REFIVE, where a teenage passion blossomed into an innovative global agency, weaving creativity, technology, and entrepreneurship in a unique tale of growth and evolution.
Education and Passion Collide
During his educational journey, which included earning a Bachelor’s in Computer Science, Roman skillfully blended his growing passion for design and marketing with his academic endeavors, always keeping the flame of what would become REFIVE alive and flickering.
The Birth of REFIVE
Balancing an intricate dance between his role in the international industry – first as a developer, then evolving into a project manager and consultant – and his studies, Roman brought REFIVE into existence, cementing his dreams into a tangible entity.
Crafting a Collective
The growing tapestry of REFIVE was enriched by assembling a dynamic team, which not only expanded our services but also amplified our ability to reach and resonate on a global scale.
Stretching Our Boundaries
Our global impact is painted not just by our diverse team that extends beyond borders, but also by our global clients and partners, each bringing their own unique hue to our ever-expanding picture.
Innovating and Venturing
Through the years, REFIVE’s spirit of innovation gave birth to spinoff companies, each exploring different realms – from legaltech and edutech to digitalization, web3, and consulting – adding vibrant strokes to our multifaceted journey.
Stepping into the Light
For eight years, REFIVE subtly danced in the shadows, expertly weaving its web of influence without a spotlight. Then, we stepped forward, sharing our expertise and services with a larger audience, unfolding our wings in the digital landscape.
Where We Stand and Look Ahead
From regional to international clients, startups to enterprises, our approach to full-service provision matured and flourished. Our ventures, through REFIVE and our network, have spawned new companies and opportunities, while our partnerships have solidified into a strong, interconnected web. Our journey is far from over. With our expanding family of clients, partners, and friends, we continually seek growth, excellence, and the next chapter of innovation, both in our home of Switzerland and in new territories across the globe.
The REFIVE story is a testament to a dream nurtured through innovation, evolution, and a steadfast dedication to delivering excellence. Here, our story intertwines with those of our clients, partners, and friends, and we invite you to join us as we continue to shape this vibrant narrative.
Founder & CEO
Moments & Milestones
Dive into our quirky wall of fame! We could've plastered thousands, but here are a few golden nuggets from our rollercoaster ride.
In the hallowed halls of university, while textbooks cracked open, I was already weaving the future of REFIVE, one project at a time
My bedroom became my first office, a sanctuary of ideas where day bled into night, and dreams took on digital form.
Back then, my tools were humble – a second-hand laptop and a patchwork of software – but they were mine, and they were enough.
The day I turned the key to REFIVE's first office, I knew we were no longer just a dream, but a reality with room to grow.
We built our tech fortress, with servers rising up to manage not just our clients' needs, but our burgeoning digital empire.
The big move – all our beloved, albeit dated, equipment traded in for the shiny and new, ready to take on whatever challenge came our way
Our first logo was a bit like that first sip of coffee – not quite perfect, but the sign of a new dawn.
As the university corridors echoed with lectures, our team grew, welcoming its first members, each adding their unique note to our symphony.
Textbooks in one hand, design tools in the other, I learned to dance the delicate dance between student and CEO.
Our little office soon became a bustling hub, filled with more faces, more ideas, and more chaos.
The once spacious office now resembled a beehive, buzzing with clients, collaborations, and a somewhat charming disarray.
Each project was an opportunity to refine our craft, each challenge a chance to create something unique.
We rolled up our sleeves and did it all – from brainstorming sessions to sweeping the floors, we were a true team.
Workshops became our playground, clients became our partners, and our processes became smoother as our office space grew.
Another move, more boxes, more dreams packed and unpacked in our new home.
Our new office wasn’t just a space; it was a declaration of our evolution, complete with new branding and room to breathe.
More faces joined our tapestry, each bringing their unique thread to our story.
And then there was Jimmy, our chief happiness officer, a golden furball of joy, who left us with memories filled with laughter and slobbery kisses.
With each step, we invested in our dreams, building a fortress of equipment that would make any tech enthusiast weep.
Workshops expanded, our client list grew, and we embraced the international stage, collaborating far and wide.
In our labs, we experimented, stretching our boundaries, creating for example interactive menu boards for Manito Baden that were nothing short of magic.
Our new office, seen as much by night as by day, became our second home, lit up with the glow of screens and ideas.
A game of table soccer became our daily ritual, the perfect break to clear our minds and stoke the fires of creativity.
Our coffee machine, once a humble drip brew, transformed into the Ferrari of espresso machines, fueling us with the best coffee as we took on the world.
Our office transformed into a creative studio, with new equipment – computers, cameras, you name it – arriving almost daily.
As our office became a buzzing hub, it started to feel like our dream had truly come to life – yet we knew this was just the beginning.
Jimmy, our chief happiness and cuddle officer, always found his cozy spot, ready to lend a paw for a snuggle or a playful break.
Three screens on deck, but wait – one's gone rogue in portrait mode! Just our little quirk in mastering the mobile universe.
Our branded notebooks became a hit, with everyone wanting a piece of us, especially because of the special message tucked inside each one.
The journey continued, taking us across borders, introducing us to new faces, clients, partners, and friends.
Baden, our city, remained our heart, and that's why we made the move to the city center.
Our new office, felt like home from day one, perhaps because our beloved table soccer made the move with us.
The coffee machine made the move too, and our barista skills leveled up, making each cup even more delicious.
Nighttime became our creative time, as the equipment got better and our ideas flowed more freely.
The office sometimes turned into a photo studio as we onboarded webshops from local to international clients.
Our partner, client, and friend, multitasking like a superhero, seamlessly balancing work and chill.
Navigating through COVID-19, our network of friends, clients, and team became our support system, proving that sometimes a smile was all it took.
Our beautiful city, Baden, #5400, provided the best backdrop to our story.
In need of more space and a change, we found our new home, which looked like a construction site, but we saw potential.
Once again, we packed our boxes, gathered our equipment, and welcomed more people into our growing family.
Our coffee machine made the move, and we even added a second one for those not yet initiated into the art of the espresso machine.
From intern to key account manager, a journey marked by grit and growth.
Our meeting room buzzes with the energy of new clients and collaborations.
Sunsets at the office are our reward for long, productive days.
Nurturing young minds, our interns evolve into visionaries under our wing.
Our meeting room glows, a beacon of late-night strategy and collaboration.
From international clients to friends, our global journey continues.
In perpetual motion, we blend passion, fun, and dedication in all we do.
Worldly inspirations fuel opportunities in bustling, vibrant cities.
Our heart remains with Baden, #5400, home to the best tower views.
Big Ben stands tall, symbolizing new chapters and collaborations.
Laptop open, sunset in view, we work from anywhere, at any time.
New places, but the same dedicated, passionate (growing) team.
Our workspace evolves as we seize global markets and opportunities.
We always return to where our heart beats the strongest: our home base.
On the move, never stopping, we journey to new chapters worldwide.
