‘"Exactly 1 year ago Estudio was born out of the desire to share my creative vision with the world & leave my own mark in the graphic design industry.
Throughout this one year me & my team have managed to work on various exciting projects that we’re proud of, while not giving up despite all the obstacles that a young company faces every single day. You know, like being doubted by everyone, having to prove our skills, fighting for our first clients, being super confused with all the taxes & realizing we actually need an accountant - just to start with.
We might not share an industry - or even a geographical market, but we do share the struggles that come with starting a business.
Estudio’s purpose has been, since the very beginning, to leave a positive impact, and working with bold & driven entrepreneurs has remained a goal of ours. We wanted to do both, so we came up with an idea:
Once a year we’ll be organizing our own competition for start-ups & we’ll be awarding our personalized services to the ones who need & want them most. This way we can give back the best way we can - by making powerful brands out of promising start-ups. "
- Martin Voynov, Founder
Good To Know
How do we define ‘startup’ - aka who can participate?
You are a newly formed company who wants to develop - or already is developing - a product/service that addresses a certain market gap, while being focused on rapid growth. You’re also solving a consumer problem, and perhaps even changing the ways things are traditionally done (bonus points for that).
