We marry design wit with business intuition to deliver results that are both beautiful and appropriate.
We are a value-driven branding and design studio. We believe that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right—and it should last. The longer our work lasts, the highest is its return on investment.
We do things differently
Since 2012, we have challenged conventions to create a different kind of studio built on a foundation of unwavering principles.
We are Why People
We are not Yes people, we are Why people. We want to understand (good or bad) what keeps you up at night. We understand that constraints and objectives are part of the creative process and embryos for experimentation. We root our work in meticulous research and observation to understand your business and its challenges and opportunities.
Working with Hangar means working directly with the project lead — the people who have the highest stake in your success, the greatest breadth and depth of experience, and a pragmatic business owner’s perspective. We don’t have a sales team because our biggest selling tool is our work and our clients.
Selective by design
Our vision has always been clear: quality over quantity. Hangar is selective by design, right down to our name. A hangar is a place where engineers and designers meet to attain high levels of precision; where it takes skill, ambition and craftsmanship to survive. But we never forget the essential thing in a hangar isn’t the aircraft. It’s the people it will carry.
Our process is collaborative, iterative and driven by intent. It’s called The Design Method. We hold various checkpoints during our process, presenting progress for review before each phase so we make sure that there are no surprises at the end.
We sit down and listen. We take an inquisitive approach to fully understand your unique situation.
We put our heads together and plan. Our findings are presented and a plan is drawn out for the next phase.
Time to link the head to the hand. We sharpen our focus (and imagination) and start executing a defined direction.
We ease out and wrap up. This is when we prepare your project for the real world.
