About Our Design Philosophy

Squidil strives to identify the vision of their client and translates it into a successful design, be it commercial or residential. We create a brand out of the space that is in line with that vision. Here at Squidil each moving piece of the design process is constantly communicated to the client. We believe an involved client guarantees effective design.​

Squidil is a unique combination of traditional design and E-Design. We maintain the human factor of traditional design while using the E-Design technology to our utmost advantage.

E-Design helps us save time for our clients with less meetings and more work done efficiently online. This combination helps us in executing a unique and compelling design more efficiently when most choose a cookie cutter approach.
