Life has taught us to LIVE IN THE MOMENT. There is no time to waste and no time to plan the future, the FUTURE is now! With that thought, in 2020, three young, fun-loving, witty, and extremely passionate women in their 20s, hitting work 9-6 felt a dire urge to do something more, something BIG, that could add value to the life of brands & help them in experiencing the real creative potential in branding & social media marketing. That very notion gave birth to Hassle Bae, a boutique creative agency that has now worked with 50+ brands in India & abroad.
Being in the social media marketing industry individually for more than 8 years, we have closely looked at the gaps that exist between a client and their creative needs. We realized how people have an eye for introducing a good product or service, but often fail to brand it well and build a loyal social media community around it. We wanted to move away from the conventional templatizing methodology and rather build tailored creative solutions for our clients.
We are artists- Brand Cullinerars, as we like to call ourselves at Hassle Bae – A boutique creative agency. We feel that each brand goes through the hassle of choosing the right name, tagline, design, color, fonts, and photography, building the right social media presence and website, building a community, and so on. Now that’s a lot of HASSLE! Well, we HUSTLE for your HASSLE! Here, we make the perfect creative cocktail under one roof and offer each brand a unique flavor.

Now touching on 4 years, we are registered under Startup India & have two offices – a virtual registered office space in Noida & an operating office in Shahpur Jat, South Delhi. We have had the fortunate opportunity to build a thriving network of full-time employees, consultants, freelancers, and agencies.
Women entrepreneurs from non-business backgrounds running a 100% bootstrapped startup, we are a triple treat! The journey has been challenging, to say the least. The trio has juggled multiple roles from admin to client servicing to business development to actual executing hands for every possible thing. The vision to create a haven for the creative youth has kept us going through numerous hurdles along the way.
Working closely on both the brand and the agency front, we felt the immediate need to create a set-up where co-workers have the flexibility and freedom to spread their creative wings. Hence, we built an environment that not only is supported by full-time employees but also is an open space for collaborating with gig workers and ensuring an evenly distributed workload.
To create a healthy work-life balance we have a hybrid work model, that allows the team to work remotely or from the office. Agency life brings copious amounts of pressure, but we believe nothing is above your mental and physical health.
We aim to minimize the pressure by collaborating with different gig workers on a personal level, getting to know their industry preferences, and assigning them projects that align best with their abilities as well as interests. Creative fields are built on collaborative efforts and we believe each project should be a fair and win-win situation for the company as well as the people working behind it.
To cut a long story short, We LOVE what we do, and nothing makes us happier than helping young brands thrive.
