Michael Pietz and Michael Wild von Hohenborn

The history of our agency

In 2003 the computer science graduate (University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg) Michael Pietz and Internet pioneer Michael Wild von Hohenborn, with their passion for the Internet and digital projects, decided to found a common existence. Today, PPW is firmly rooted in Cologne and Münster, and the two founders are proud of an intensive and successful time in which they have accompanied customers from a wide range of industries into the digital future.

2003

Here we go - foundation of pietzpluswild GbR by Michael Pietz and Michael Wild von Hohenborn and moving into the office at Barbarahof.

2006

Packing crates - Move to Rudolfplatz to beautiful maisonette agency to make room for more employees.

2008

In summer 2008 the pietzpluswild GbR becomes the pietzpluswild GmbH - Internet Agency Cologne.

First trainee for the area of media designer with the focus on digital. In the following years, two further trainees for this area will follow.

 

2013

It's getting too tight - move with about 20 employees to a beautiful old building agency.

In the middle of Cologne on Breite Straße, in the middle of the busy shopping street between stores, cafes and breweries, the digital agency PPW is now located. Here we spend our time thinking, coming up with ideas, creating concepts, designing layouts and programming websites.

2014

Nothing is more constant than change - cooperation with change management expert Christiane Richter, conversio.

Together, we develop a customized digitization strategy and accompany companies on their way into the digital future.

2015

We think our name and our corporate design deserve a refresher. Therefore we dedicate ourselves for once to ourselves and have a facelift: pietzpluswild becomes PPW (German)

2017

Off into new fields - the second agency location is founded in Münster.

Situated at Kreativkai, this is the location where UX is lived. Whether it is the proximity to the Digital Hub of the Münsterland or the UX-Meetup UXMS, founded by our UX colleague Oliver Schirok.

2019

The colleagues from Münster are packing cartons and post-its. In the new loft office at the other end of the Kreativkai, our UX team has more space for whiteboards, workshops and growth.

2020

Nothing is as it was. In Corona times, the PPW team continues to work seamlessly and keeps the virus at bay and the projects running thanks to remote work.
