Hey!Fugu - how we do things

Design inspired by nature...

Meet Fugu

Fugu (the Japanese name for ‘pufferfish’) is our mascot and the inspiration behind the name hey!fugu.

An under the sea artist, Fugu inspires us with his winning combination of beauty and function as he creates his clever circular sand design to solve his problem of standing out in a crowd to catch the eye of the right partner.

Fugu reminds us of the iterative nature of design thinking – an approach that changed everything about the way we approach projects and work.

Our Approach

We help businesses elevate their teams and create people-centric products, services, and platforms that flow seamlessly and are easy to use. Unlike large agencies our offering is bespoke. We pride ourselves on being extremely agile with fast turnarounds, utilising a design thinking approach with multiple iterations and time spent listening to users.

Always with a sense of play at heart – whether  designing or delivering a workshop for your team, helping you prototype your app or designing a new piece of software – design thinking and enjoyment is intrinsic to our approach.

Design Thinking is a human-centred approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success.
