We are a communications and design studio based in Mumbai. Our goal is to help organizations with tools, collaterals and strategies to strengthen their internal and external communications.

We understand the varied challenges faced by organizations in the social sector, and stay heavily invested in assisting the team through all components of the exercise, from project management, to planning timelines and training teams during handover.

User-centered Approach

We adopt a user-centered approach to our design and strategy, keeping our audience in mind all through planning and execution.

Beginning with Research

We start each project with an immersive qualitative research exercise. Our process starts with primary and secondary research with the internal team, external stakeholders and our target audience. The research involves a combination of one-on-one interviews and group discussions using ethnographic practices. The research informs our designs and strategies.

Designing a narrative for your user

All our designs and strategies are centered around the needs of our user. We see each communication material as opportunities to take our user through a unique, engaging experience. From the content narrative to the visual experience of the design, we focus on weaving all components together to communicate with the user effectively.

Feedback and testing our ideas

Our process is iterative, incorporating user feedback at every stage. Our process allows for flexibility to change course at critical junctions based on user response. The exercise helps us keep our ideas and solutions relevent.
