The studio

v-a is a Portuguese communication design studio based in the heart of Lisbon, dedicated to the creation of multidisciplinary projects on both digital and print media. Our main goal is to provide bespoke communication strategies, inspired visuals, and carefully tailored technology solutions that accommodate both the design and user experience. 

Our team is made of talented creative directors, graphic and web designers and web developers who are passionate about what they do. Working with global brands and startups alike, we nurture continuous relationships and assist with the development of key communication design goals through a strategic process, solid custom-made technologies and clever solutions brought by creative thinking.

We strongly believe design and web go hand in hand, and that successful development and maintenance requires knowledge and skills in many areas. These include planning, analysis, design, implementation, promotion, and innovation. At v-a, the focus is on the utility and substance of the website as much as on the design.

What we do

Our web team consists of six full time creative and technical professionals who specialize in graphic design and web development. We are dedicated to all forms of communication design, from full brand and identity projects to UX and design consultation, web design and web development. These include planning, analysis, design, implementation, promotion, and innovation.
