PURPOSE

Hangar helps companies matter more to their customers and profit by putting people first.

—We believe if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

Built on a foundation of unwavering principles, at Hangar the agility, pace and creativity of a startup meet best practice delivery and deep industry experience.

1

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 do not fear challenges. We understand that constraints and objectives are part of the creative process and embryos for experimentation.

2

Partner with Partners

Working with Hangar means working directly with one of our partners — the people who have the highest stake in your success, the greatest breadth and depth of experience, and a pragmatic business owner’s perspective.

3

We Love Our Craft

We take pride in the work we do. We love creating and promoting products that demonstrate attention to detail, a high level of craftsmanship and a generous pinch of stickiness.

4

No Spec

We don’t do free pitches or spec work (and we’re not alone). Good work involves thought and research. Pitches and spec work usually involve cheap templates or recycled or copied concepts. This is not how Hangar works.

5

No Commissions

We earn our worth by adding value to projects and work with the best printers, artisans or advertisers for your project. We never accept commissions from advertisers or suppliers. Quality and fit are the only things that influence our selection process. As it should be.

6

No Sales Team

At Hangar bespoke is more than a buzzword. Our work is specifically designed to solve our clients’ unique problems. And it does. We don’t have a sales team because our biggest selling tool is our work and our clients. They are the truest testimonials of our expertise and dedication to our craft

Approach

6 ideas that guide our decision making and shape our work

1

People First

We help companies matter more to their customers and employees, and profit by putting people first. By creating experiences, products and spaces that make people's lives better, we strengthen brands—and bottom lines.

2

The Pixel is the Limit

No detail is too small. We look at the bigger picture but we understand the importance that small details hold. Perfection is in our DNA, and we understand great design is an art of reduction. A great designer or marketer is able to find a balance between the important and the unnecessary.

3

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.

4

Always be Creating & Shipping

Creativity is like a muscle and it needs exercise. Being constantly creative helps us stay energised while seeing our products in the wild keeps our morale high.

5

Learn & Share

Learning curves are sexy. As individuals and as an agency learning is on our agenda. We share what we learn with others and create an environment where those around us to do the same.

6

Deep in Collaboration

Collaboration creates results that are greater than the sum of its parts. We choose people wisely and work with ambitious, talented individuals who share our passion and values.
