About

From a dining table in New York to a studio in Mumbai…

THE STORY

The idea of BRND Studio started taking shape back in 2006, when our Founder Sudhir Bhatia set up a creative practice founded on the principles of human-centred design.

What began as a one-man shop working out of Sudhir’s dining table in Cobble Hill, evolved into an office space in Mumbai with a full-fledged team.

THE SPACE
Steps away from many Old ‘Bombay’ landmarks, the ocean and surrounded by art galleries, museums, cafes and more, our neighbourhood is a constant source of inspiration.
The studio’s setting in Colaba at the historic Grant Building keeps us grounded in creating design that lasts.
BRND ETHOS

Building digital products requires an appetite for ambiguity and the ability to quickly adapt to shifts in the market or technology through a continuous loop of ideation-prototyping-testing-refinement. We deliver value through open communication and integration with client teams.

The name BRND stems from our belief that research & development (R&D) is more than a step in a product lifecycle – it is a state of mind for brands that want to stand the test of time.

Team

We’re a close-knit bunch of thinkers, makers and misfits
