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 work both in the commercial and cultural fields and also create self-initiated projects.
