We design with people, for people, to tell stories about injustice, hope, and everything in between.

Empathy. Clarity. Equity.

Our partnerships are built on a deep sense of trust, collaboration, co-creation, thought-provoking creative experiences, building, testing and rebuilding. Knowledge is a powerful change agent. Let’s design to shape our future.

Client Partners

Our client partners believe in a future that elevates healing over punishment, where health is a human right, and where every voice is heard and valued.

Our work makes waves

We have a reputation for excellence. We’ve won significant awards, received recognition from prominent publications, and been featured in exhibits around the world.

“By having a bigger purpose, it just might be that Hyperakt's building a 21st century design studio: the crucible of big, world-changing ideas.”

Harvard Business Review

--

“Hyperakt offers a rare case study in balancing idealism with pragmatism.”

Big Think

--

“The advertising clichés provided by Mad Men can’t be further from the 21st century truth: that creatives now, more than ever, are interested in furthering community and social goals. Hyperakt is one of those standard-bearers.”
