federal.™ is a design, architecture and visual communication studio that started in 2013.
federal.™‘s aim is to spread a certain way of thinking design with agility and consciousness. We believe in sostenible and fair design.
federal.™ is different to other specialized studios because it does not focus only in the final result.
Beyond the principles of every project, our goal is to focus on the way we arrive to this final result, adding all our differences, characters, thoughs and how we understand design today. This is a raw daily challenge for a multidisciplinary design and strategist team, trying to inspire and show different ways to design, create and experiment. We strongly believe in the power of sharing knowledge.
federal.™ also promote young creative professionals by producing and distributing their works trying to find synergies and innovative links between designers, producers, industry, and the market. We try to generate, produce, sale, products to people in a conscious way: locally designed and built, fair to everyone involved in the process and designed for people.
Designed from people, built by people, for people.

we are federal.™
