What we do

We create contemporary brand identities, packaging solutions and digital experiences for a diverse range of brands, ranging from start-ups to global businesses. Our minimalistic approach allows clients to portray themselves effectively and transform their brands into entities that transcend cross-cultural boundaries. This global appeal has lead us to work with discerning clients across a wide range of sectors.

How we do it

We approach every project with passion and dedication, applying detail, skill and craftsmanship to every stage of our design process. This tailored perspective is driven by clients' aspirations and business objectives, allowing us to reduce the redundant and deliver functional, enduring and effective solutions. A combination of explorative and instinctive techniques coupled with sound strategic thinking guide our approach.

Kavya Acharya

Senior Designer

 

I've always wanted to create something that builds a memory in our heads. I've grown up around films and music, and thrive best around creativity and humour. Illustration is one of my favourite hobbies and I aspire to become an art director someday. I also secretly wish for superpowers. I've previously worked at Condé Nast Traveller India magazine, an advertising agency called Scarecrow M&C Saatchi, and a mental health App called One More Light. I like a lot of things and don't hold myself back from exploring them all.

Constantly fascinated by the stories around me, I love creating new perspectives with words. I believe narratives shape the world and have the ability to create change. My experiments have taken me across various forms of writing including a self-published poetry book, a blog, 'Inked', with creative non-fiction and fiction, and content writing with Doldora Design across websites and social media.
