We are a bridge to better experiences.

From the beginning, we’ve chosen to work primarily with start-ups. The risk-takers, the adventurers, leapers – the ones who live according to their hearts. Philosophically, we are the bridge between a brand and its consumers. We take the time to understand both their needs so that we design better experiences. SEO-phically, we are a full-service outfit, delivering Strategic and Creative Branding and Identity Design, Advertising, Packaging Design, Digital Marketing, Videos, Films and Animation, UI/UX and more.

Our Capabilities with a strong belief

We choose to design experiences over brands. When we design an experience, we have to ask why the brand exists. We ask brands to think about whether they want a checklist of deliverables, or they want stories people will connect with. When brands answer their why, we can help, through design, with the how.

Brands are created through familiarity, not silos. We spend a lot of time with brands, to understand them thoroughly, to know them, and to find that one insight that will resonate with consumers. We believe in the adage that ‘you are the brand you create’ – and we help our clients understand this singular truth of identity design. Our solutions for brand identity design are based on the brand’s values, communicated in the simplest form to consumers.

Invisible design makes for great experiences. We put the user at the centre of every design. Good UX/UI is not about website versus apps; it’s about how users feel when they use these interfaces. When we integrate and sync brand language to digital experiential touch points, we try balance business objectives with subjective user needs. We try to understand users’ emotional impulses, latent needs and their real environment, before we even start designing. When a user simply enjoys their experience, we know we’ve succeeded.

Art and storytelling form brand tapestries. Combining unconventional approaches and styles with mediums of execution is a skill, and we’ve perfected it over the years. Backed by research and consumer insights, we are able to tell stories that consumers want to hear, in visuals they want to see, again and again.

This is how consumers connect to the brand. Sensitive, intuitive campaigns connect with consumers by transforming brand strategies into an understanding of real user needs. We create carefully crafted campaigns centred on brand identity and strategy as well as consumer insights, with a little bit of design.

Design doesn’t just evoke, but also informs consumers. We focus on making packaging design more desirable, and we do that by staying true to the product. Packaging, especially, is a medium that creates a last mile experience for brands. We have several approaches to creating successful packaging, from playing with the design and sticking Post-Its on walls to origami and cutting paper.

Great visuals communicate and carry brand stories. We take the adage of seeing is believing quite seriously. The power of an image when it comes to creating enduring brand stories is unmatched. Unbound by styles and mediums, we develop visual language for brands, crafting a balance between art and function.

Journey or the experience? Of course the journey. 



Journey or the experience? Of course the journey. 


Our Process

People. Process. Product.
In that order.

To give brands more meaning, we design around the people who use them. The beginning’s always a great place to start. That’s why we circle back to the consumer’s need for the product, how it’s used, how it’s made, and finally, how it can be made better

It’s not biomimicry.
It’s bioinspiration.

Our design thinking process is grounded in Nature’s solutions. Nature doesn’t just resolve a problem; she evolves a solution. Nothing is wasted, everything is in sync, and the world’s a better place for it. So, who better to learn from?

The big picture. The finer details. And everything in between.

Every solution is designed to evolve the brand and build long-term relationships with consumers. Websites, logos, packaging, apps, the works – they’re part of a greater, continuous dialogue with consumers. By treating everything as part of an ecosystem, we make the conversation more meaningful.

Heads behind the Headless Hippies

Vibin K
Co-founder & Director

After several years in advertising (try not to hold it against him), Vibin set up Headless Hippies to focus purely on design. Nonetheless, he can often be distracted by tea and great conversation. To his credit, he always steers the topic to design. His love for ideas and the craft can be seen in his work for Fresh Menu, Earth Souk, Changemaker Schools, and Nourishing Schools.

Abhilash K
Co-founder & Director

A picture’s worth a thousand words. Maybe that’s why, he’s a man of few. Watch Abhilash while he’s illustrating, and the word ‘Zen’ comes to mind. With a Master’s from IIT Mumbai’s Industrial Design Centre, Abhilash is the artist behind illustrations for Paperboat, Koala and Cuweeosity. Enough said.

The way we work

For us, design is a journey, rather than a destination. We love the process, the detailing, the painstaking craftsmanship, over the outcome. That’s why we call our approach to good design, Design Thinking. What does that mean? It means starting every design with process. It means understanding users’ needs, from the what to why and how, arriving at insights and ideas that resonate with us, and also with real users; and finally, it results in an experience. And Design Thinking is the need of the hour. For not just us, but clients too. Before you jump into running a business and learning on-the-go, you must consider: is this product or brand useful to consumers? That single question can change your process, and thus the consumer’s experience. And brands that know their consumers’ needs are better placed to help us create brand experiences for them. With Design Thinking, Headless Hippies uses processes to help companies balance customer needs and brands objectives on the journey to memorable experiences.
