HI! WE'RE ABLEMAGIC.
ablemagic is all about storytelling and development. We work for clients and we create our own projects. Our main focus is always the good (or important – or unimportant but nevertheless amusing) story.
ablemagic exists because of a story – and the urge to tell it. In 2007, Nina was bored at a seminar. In her notebook she scribbled down the idea that later became the story universe ’tisu. After just a few months, she had borrowed money, quit her job and made contact with Ingrid, who drew the first ’tisubaby – a character in a game.
With time, market changes and the people working in the company we have grown and developed. Today we work with different platforms, target groups and technologies, but our goal is always to create unique story experiences.
CEO Nina was the one to establish ablemagic in 2007, after having worked for several years in advertising and with theatre. She has a passion for storytelling in anything from games to TV-shows, books and digital toys. Her core competence lies in strategic and conceptual work.
