Studio Eksaat is an Interior and Communication Design studio based out of New Delhi. Over 7 years, we have worked on a variety of projects offering insight driven design solutions which are thoughtful, innovative and well researched. Our designs are customized to our clients needs. We follow a process driven and immersive approach in our work and take time to get to know our clients and their brands. We do not promise overnight design solutions, but can guarantee a fresh perspective and an enthusiastic team.

We approach each project with curiosity, a lot of questions and multi-directional perspective to solving design problems. We strongly believe that good design emerges from collaboration and a variety of different perspectives, which come together to create a strong, insight driven and long lasting brand. For us, each project is a partnership between the client and the designer.

We specialize in creating distinct brand language and identity design systems. We also love working on interior spaces which are looking for a new voice and style. For us, a space needs to have a feeling rather than a theme. Spaces can make people feel a variety of emotions – for eg: happy, excited, uncomfortable, sad, nostalgic, energetic, to name a few. We like to work towards capturing this feeling and making it tangible through art, music, colours, smells and materials which are carefully curated.

Our services include:

  • Interior Design & Curation
  • Identity Design System
  • Branding
  • Packaging Design
  • Illustration & Murals
  • Books & Publications
  • Website & App Design
  • Design Strategy Workshops
