A & J DesignWorks was founded in 2015 by Avantika Agarwal (after a few months of naming panic which resulted in picking the most nondescript thing possible). Since, the studio has grown, and works with clients from various fields, both in India and abroad.
We enjoy creative problem solving, and don't favour any particular medium to express our process. As such, our portfolio includes designing physical products and their packaging, branding and brand strategy, websites and mobile apps and custom furniture and installations. We have worked across industries including healthcare, food tech, consumer electronics, real estate, etc.
Our experience also included end to end manufacturing and production. Apart from a number of custom furniture commissions through A&J, Avantika has launched her own home lifestyle brand (www.other-kingdom.com) with partners, Jess Fugler & Tino Seubert, based in New York and London respectively. O-K combines industrial techniques and material finished with traditional craft processes, and is currently available online, and through select design stores in Bangalore, London, Berlin and New York.
