Product and service design for social good.

Hactar is a product and service design agency specialising in helping grow organisations with a social conscience.

Clever use of technology and lean processes enable us to work faster and smarter.

We consult, teach, workshop, present, plan, research, design, test and build.

We're a modern agency with a lean philosophy. We firmly believe that the very best and most meaningful work is conducted cheek by jowl with our clients, their stakeholders, and (most importantly) their users.

We’re here to help the underserved and the oversold.

We brought the same rigour to designing an agency that we bring to our clients’ projects — examining every aspect to find where improvements can be made and processes can be streamlined.

Hactar was founded to help the underserved and the oversold, and was designed from the ground up to rethink what an agency born in the twenty-first century should be.

Hactar constantly undergoes the same test, iterate and optimise cycle that we use on all our work — as a result, we work smarter and faster, which translates into savings for our clients.

With our values nailed firmly to the mast, we have special rates for charities and non-profits and love working with businesses with a conscience.

We’ve worked with clients across publishing, healthcare, philanthropy, retail, finance, ethical trading, education, and sustainability.

Each one of these sectors presents its own challenges and opportunities. And each one of the organisations we’ve had the pleasure of working with have had very specific audience needs, and business goals — some of which weren’t immediately obvious.

The team at Hactar have long supported D&AD's mission. They're great to work with, bringing creative integrity and thoughtfulness on top of knowledge and expertise.

Our work

We love working with passionate, committed teams.

Operating such a lean process, means we get to meet and work with a variety of grassroots organisations and startups, all of them making a real difference to a sector or a community.

Every organisation we’ve worked with has had a committed, core team; sometimes that’s the whole organisation, and sometimes it’s a few people given the right balance of accountability and autonomy to run a project.

Given the nature of some of our work we can’t list everyone we’ve helped out. Rest assured, they’ve all been pretty fantastic and we’re lucky the organisations below fit that description too.
