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 team is intentionally small. 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. No layers of friction between project managers or account executives.
Founder & Creative Director
In the last sixteen years Clint has worked across industries and helped businesses find their voice through branding and design.
Clint has previously launched tech startups, and in 2016 secured a seed round from a Google Executive and Angel Investor based in San Francisco for a music startup called Kwaver which was also invited as a case study for Google Partner Day and Google IO Conference.
He designed a 10-week course entitled Designing for Intent: A Design Process from Lead to Launch and lectured it at the University of Malta between 2019 and 2020.
Designer & Illustrator
Kicking-off his design career as a junior designer with Hangar back in 2015, Jan quickly turned into a master illustrator with an impressive eye for detail and a portfolio to match.
His meticulous organisation skills have helped him work on various projects and design collateral from intricate illustrations for fintech brands to playful and provocative lettering for catering establishments.
A generalist by nature, Jan has acquired the skills to also take a UX project from start to end be it a marketing website or a complex B2B fintech product.
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.
This is when the project kicks off. We work with you to understand what you are trying to achieve and what (good or bad) keeps you up at night.
During our discovery process, we acquire data and insight about your business.
This is no place for imagination (yet). This is about being pragmatic and fully understanding your unique situation.
Time to sit down and pull all the pieces together.
Here we decide what platform, channels or technologies are appropriate for your challenges. We develop a strategy or action plan, which will take us to the next phases.
For visual references, we deliver this in a mood board and presentation, or as a wireframe or storyboard. We use these tools to discuss the mood of the project and engage in constructive conversations with you.
The exciting part starts. During the creative phase, we start sketching and looking for possible paths to reach a project’s objective. We use all of the information gathered up until now to push our focus in one direction towards a final concept.
Wheels up, lift off. We’ll deliver the project concept or strategy, and walk you through the rationale and process we took to achieve this direction. Together, we’ll discuss your questions and feedback.
Once we agree on the proposed way forward, we confirm on the best implementation plan.
