Core Team





Makers Making Make

Exactly a year ago, as a team we took a bold step to move out of our comfort zone as consultants. We decided to move away from the cozy fortune 50 clientele, big bank balances and world tours.

We dedicated our time and energy towards what we felt is more important, meaningful and above all more impactful work. Our starting point was a Chinese proverb. I’m not kidding!

“Give a man a fish, you will feed him for a day. Teach him fishing you will feed him for a lifetime”

We stretched the proverb a little more and wondered if we make a better fishermen probably fish and fishing will be taken care efficiently.

The rest was history and Xperian was born, to address Fish, Fishing and Fishermen for the building world. We set our vision as makers, making and make in that order. We knew that was a large vision. To keep things focused we started with design ecosystem and we started problems around Designers. Designing. Design. The first few words we wrote in our vision document…

Xperian is not a conventional product company running behind repeat and scale nor a service company which is all about looting clients with mediocre solutions. We intend to become the most trusted design stop anyone can ever find.

While we defined our north star we also defined our compass on the go. We did set our organisation culture before we started any work. Empathy for our tribe will define us. Once the vision was set, we could not wait to get our hands dirty with our first mission.

Yes, we started out with DESIGN aspect. We did a lot of crazy experiments to understand design world better. We are still doing a number of experiments, which other folks think are crazy, but we are super thrilled about it. We learned a lot about design world. What is working and especially what is not working! We started fixing it one by one.

We organised 99 percent of the needs through our tech enabled our platform and if our customers need to push the envelope a little more, are particular about world class quality and want a little more expert intervention, we formulated the 1 percent club as well.

So, what is Xperian?

We coined the term Xperian because there was no word dedicated in the dictionary that referred to someone who cared about experiences. Like a spartan, there is an xperian too, who fights for great experiences. It is not just design or product or leadership or tech. It is many decisions and disciplines coming together to make one awesome experience. It is a lot of hard work. It is time we see it holistically and not in fragments.

In short, Xperian is an ecosystem for creative problem-solvers. We have xyz problems to solve and hence .xyz as a domain name too. To keep the focus of the talent, education and consulting we kept the organisations separately as, and Fundamentally, all are connected with common thread of helping the community grow and flourish, but for efficiency reasons we run them as separate organisations. In general, our model is to have a strong vision which aids in running the business.

This structure allows us to keep tremendous focus on the variety of opportunities we have in the “making” world. The birth of Xperian is a very exciting new chapter for us in our lives.

We are continuously building our experience school, our talent wing, our consulting practice and our tech enabled platform which brings all aspects together.
