about kandi karl and ida

Kandi was founded by Karl and Ida in 2010. Their complementary skill sets strike a balance between structure and creativity.

Our approach has always been to produce work that delivers on objectives, we achieve this by being client focused. Together we create purposeful and effective designs, not only work that looks good, but work that works.

By working closely with our clients, offering ongoing support and services to their needs, and having a clearly defined work process, we help our clients achieve their goals.


01. Curiosity

We believe the key to great work is a close relationship and open communication with our clients. Our eagerness to get to know and understand your business generates better outcomes.

02. Thoughtfulness

We’re creative but smart too. We create thoughtful and meaningful design that answers our client’s objectives. We’re results driven and we care about your bottom line as much as we care about pixel perfection.

03. Integrity

At Kandi, being reliable, organised and professional is just as important as being creative. That’s how we build trusting relationships with our clients; delivering high quality design, on time, every time.
