Across Borders is a global, collaborative and intercultural initiative created by Mayúscula design studio, which believes in design as a tool to break borders and create a positive impact on society. In a world in witch 272 million people live outside their countries of origin, Across Borders vindicates our cultural identity, diversity and wide variety of points of view, analyzing in depth our differences and similarities through design. Borders are meeting points, not barriers; crossroads where we can all meet to imagine a better destiny.
Mayúscula is a branding and design studio focused on the creation of global and multilingual brands for start-ups, established companies and creative agencies in need of a partner. We help our customers tear down the barriers to competitiveness, whether expanding their business to emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Middle East or growing in developed markets like Europe.
“Design has the power to break borders and facilitate a highly creative and dynamic space that is hybrid, transcultural and transmedia.”.
