Desisto is an independent multidisciplinary platform, established in 2013 by Margarida Borges and Ricardo Martins. More recently we decided to operate also as a Graphic Design studio and welcomed José Mendes. We create self-initiated projects and work within the cultural and commercial fields. We mainly design and produce Visual Identity Systems, Branding, Editorial Projects, Exhibition/Set Design and Web Design with a particular focus on typography and production. We are available for commissions and collaborations.
