IKD won the D&AD Kyoorius Design Awards blue elephant for Best Book Design. We have been finalists for Branding and Design Craft for the same awards previously.

We are a cutting-edge, creatively driven, full-service design consultancy — we set the trends for others to follow. We create strong relationships between clients and their customers. We believe that it doesn’t matter where, how or in what medium, an idea is expressed, one still has to start with a great idea.

To us, design is not just the visual or aesthetic, but the meaning behind it — the story of who you are and what you and your company aspires to become. We help you add clarity to your communication. We can do this because, are not just designers but content creators — we help shape your brand by creating content which is supported by great design — that is truthful, direct and appropriate to your company and the audience you want to build.

We bring to the table a strong, committed and passionate team of experts with disparate experiences and interests. We are process oriented and work hard to understand your organization, the competition, the current and long-term target audiences. We work very collaboratively with all our clients through various processes such as brain-storming sessions and mind-mapping.

We bring personalized attention to your work that is uncommon in today’s fast-paced commercial design world. We help translate your vision into a brand identity, website, app or print collateral that is bold, makes an impact, and creates enthusiasm and excitement in your target audience. We help uncover the hidden needs of your audiences and turn those insights into compelling communications.

Overall, the depth and breadth of the work is epitomized by Ishan’s work experience in the United States and India which spans over 15 years. This experience helps us combine the best of global and Indian design sensibilities — for instance for PriceWaterhouse Coopers we have created a corporate report that combines the minimalism of the west, with chapter separators that are rooted in Indian craft traditions.

This reflects our conviction that great design cannot happen without passion, intelligence, and personal commitment, which is demonstrated by a portfolio of work that spans over 15 years.
