When the BBC wanted a distinctive visual design for its iPlayer interface, it turned to this London company. Fjord designs digital products, creating a look to match the mobile applications offered by customers such as Nokia and Yahoo. Olof Schybergson, Mark Curtis and Michael Beeston founded the company in 2001, and it now has offices in Berlin, Helsinki and New York as well as a new presence in Madrid. This year Beringea paid £2.4m for a 26% stake in the business. Sales grew 82% a year from £1.1m in 2005 to £6.6m in 2008.
