Our History

Over the years, we’ve grown by leaps and bounds. Here's our story
2012
A chance meeting.
Three starry-eyed engineers meet by complete serendipity and start WinkTales as a Visual Services Firm, with a focus on democratizing the booming photography industry.
2013
A wedding shoot gone wrong.
A hilariously contrasting wedding shoot serves as an eye-opener - while the photography market is lucrative, our founders struggle to align personal interests and aptitudes with the original value proposition. This seals the fate of WTF - WinkTales Fotografie (funny how we try to be extra cool in the early days of starting up).
2014
The search to the million-dollar question “Who are we?” begins.
Like every start-up trying to figure it all out, we continue to pivot from visual services to marketing to even a brief stint dabbling in organic farming but nothing really sticks. Ah! Those early days of starting up.
2015
Settling down for now.
WinkTales settles down as a Creative Studio in the interim offering brand and communication design. But, in their hearts, our founders know that they’re still missing the X factor - that this isn’t it.
2016
Life comes full circle.
Every engineer figures out what they want from life after doing engineering but never realize that no matter what they choose, engineering never leaves them. Our founders were no different, and the answer to their question, “What is the one business that combines our left and right brain, the mixes creativity and critical reasoning and is in demand with little to no competition?” was found. UX Design. Eureka!
2017
Years of experimentation, the stars finally align with an answer on the horizon.
Or maybe just a classic case of “try, try until you succeed.” Perhaps a bit of both. WinkTales shuts shop. And Thence, a Digital Design Studio was formed.
2018
Starting from scratch.
Thence, begins the journey of starting (ground up) once again. A fresh team formed, a renewed vigour instilled but the same passion and perseverance to succeed continues to propel us forward.
2019
Onward and upward
This time the signals are strong and clear: our clients absolutely love what we’ve to offer and we’re killing it as we transition from a UX Design Studio to a UX Solutions Firm.

In pursuit of Digital Success?

At Thence we're fanatics of execllence in User Experience and Product Performance.
