nexum AG and The FatDUX Group establish strategic consulting and design partnership
For months, we've been whispering about this behind closed doors! Now, we can finally share the news: The FatDUX Group has formed a strategic alliance with nexum AG, one of Germany’s leading digital agencies, to offer even stronger and broader expertise in the international user-experience marketplace.
Naturally, nexum AG has translated the official announcement into German and distributed it there and FatDUX HQ in Copenhagen has sent it to relevant Danish media so this big splash is heard far beyond the Duck Pond.
Dateline: COLOGNE, GER. and COPENHAGEN, DEN. (24 September 2012)
Friends, this isn't just the start of another week, it's the start of a whole new era for user experience in Europe and the Americas! Here's the official release:
-- nexum AG, one of Germany’s foremost digital agencies, and The FatDUX Group, an international user-experience design firm headquartered in Denmark, have announced the formation of a strategic partnership. The combination of nexum AG’s large workforce with FatDUX’ multinational influence and operations makes the partnership one of the largest in the global user-experience sector.

In turn, FatDUX will offer nexum’s extensive e-commerce, social media consulting, design and development services to clients throughout Europe and the Americas.
Dr. Michael Klinkers, CEO of nexum AG explains, “The partnership between nexum AG and FatDUX gives us the ability to effectively tackle even the largest, multinational projects and therefore will take us to a new level.
