Handmade is a high-end design firm specialised in creating product and service experiences. From our studio in Amsterdam we serve clients across Europe that expect smart, delightful & beautiful solutions.

Digital craftsmanship

We share a fascination for carefully crafted products. Our col­lec­tive of user ex­pe­ri­ence de­sign­ers and en­gi­neers won’t stop until the end result is polished to perfection.

Prototype first methodology

Endless decks of screens and specs are a thing of the past. The sooner you can experience a design the better. Throughout the process we create lo-fi and hi-fi on-device prototypes that really tell what works and what doesn’t.
