We are a small team doing targeted work to drive long-term impact. We take pride in designing solutions that are honest, practical and sustainable. We work closely with your team to study your program, and understand the behaviour and needs of all the people you work with. Our learnings help us build solutions that can improve their experiences and increase your impact.

We work on short, intensive execution sprints starting with a leg of research. This includes a combination of field visits to study the work on-ground, and interviews + workshops with internal and external stakeholders. 


The learnings define a clear creative strategy for implementation. The building phase is iterative and highly inclusive. The stakeholders and beneficiaries are looped in at every stage. Projects end with a detailed training workshop to help organisations have clarity and control on how to use, adopt, and sustain the solutions. The studio takes complete ownership on all aspects of the project, from research, to writing, design, and project management. 

Things we work on:
Comms strategy, outreach strategy, brand narrative/story, complete brand consolidation exercise, program articulation, strategy and outputs for program delivery, scripts/decks/materials for fundraising, website (writing + design + assist developers), gathering and curating impact stories, brand communication collaterals, reports, articulating brand purpose/voice, culture-building workshops, comms capacity building workshops, writing + design training programs, qualitative research, ethnographic research study (remote + field).
