The Brief

Sharma Brands, the brand strategy and growth agency founded by DTC expert Nik Sharma, was looking to level up its website to facilitate new business and to embody the brand's personality. After creating a striking new personal site for Nik Sharma, our next mission was to do the same for Sharma Brands.

Web

We designed the vibrant and energetic Sharma Brands' site to educate leads, showcase the diversity of the agency’s work, and to highlight the strength of Nik Sharma's entire brand portfolio.

We infused the site with distinctive qualities in both design and copy, creating an exciting experience for visitors in both light and dark mode. Custom animations and Easter eggs are hidden throughout the site, like interactive popping buzzword bubbles at the bottom of the Home page ‚ÄĒ can you find them all?

WebSITE Design

With a complementary color scheme to its sister site Nik.co, the website cohesively nests within the larger ecosystem of Nik’s brands. Notable design features include the unique navigation placement and the trailing cursor. Even the 404 page was created to entertain with a gamified Nik looking for your lost page.

Brand

The sister site to Nik Sharma’s personal website features a lightly abstract yet creatively easy-to-follow branding. The use of interesting fonts, italics, and a black-and-white color scheme with pops of primary colors highlights bright ideas and organizes information.

The addition of stars adds a touch of fun, while the thin line illustrations and intentional circular motifs modernize and balance the overall design, creating a creative, playful, and professional personality.

Logo

The clean, geometric Sharma Brands "SB" logo incorporates the first letter of each word in the brand name. These letters move through the negative space like a road, symbolizing the journey the agency takes clients on and emphasizing the idea of driving brand growth. Although flat, the logo can appear 3D from certain perspectives, alluding to how Sharma Brands helps its clients stand out.

LogoTYPE

The Sharma Brands logotype is digestible yet different. It strikes a balance between being compact yet bold, featuring divots, sharp lines, and corners that contrast with rounded, playful elements. Upside-down letters introduce both horizontal and vertical elements of symmetry.
