What clients say

Seattle – Durham NC – Southwest Ireland – Phnom Penh

‘Beyond ordinary team building activities we used to do, the facilitator (Dipika) did an outstanding job introducing innovative methodology that enabled our team to put aside routine work hats, creating a safe space that our team felt comfortable to share and connect with one another our past experiences, family and what we each care about. Our team now sees each other beyond just colleagues. We understand each other more. We grow our respect and appreciation for each other even more.’

‘Anyone who’s worked for a startup-stage organization knows that gaining this clarity is far more challenging than one might think. We’ve incorporated the learnings from this exercise into all of communications, and it helps other people get it too. DK stressed that you have to earn your customer’s trust and loyalty. Truly great brands understand this. My favorite part of the process was the fabulous aha that came when we did our customer activity. DK had us name the personality traits of different kind of customers and once we organized these traits into personas, it was as if a veil had been lifted. Suddenly, conceptualizing what we do, the value we bring, and who we work with became clear.’

‘A great and above all original stand out design service, allied to a world savvy understanding of what you need to do to get noticed in the busy world we all live in… wonderful people to work with!’

‘Many times designers will do what you tell them to do. But you… would not. You would say, “No. That’s not a good idea, and we’re not gonna do that.” That was new. You made us think, and in the end, we got to a stronger design together. Thank you.’

‘Money well spent. Thanks again for such terrific work. It all looks great! The envelopes look especially cool, really eye-catching and novel. Cheers all around and thanks for the millionth time.’

‘Setting out to launch a new organization, our board and staff were appropriately all over the map about what we’d call it. Design Kompany gave us synergistic tools to get us all to the same place and of the same mind. We wouldn’t be who we are without Design Kompany’s expertise and facilitation. When we were tempted to incorporate too much, they’d gently guide us back to our own mission. When we got confused, they got us back on track… Their ability to work at both a birds-eye and granular level concurrently impressed me and I’d work with them again in a heartbeat!’

‘Dipika has an incredible way of helping analytical and logical teams (or individuals) tap into their creative sides and think outside the box. Working with one of our teams, she helped us define our marketing plan to include more emotional elements, rather than purely rational ones. Overall, I would highly recommend hiring Dipika if you struggle with accessing creative/emotional ideas or are just generally stuck in mental rut. She is fantastic!’
