Half & Twice is an independent design studio based in Madrid. We specialize in brand development for startups and growing businesses.
A strategic brand and design partner. We work closely with clients from all over the world, helping them make a lasting impression by cultivating a strong visual presence across every platform. We do this through art direction, graphic design, branding, website development, content creation, and social media.
Our clients care about sustainability, community, and diversity. We share these values. So, we love collaborating on value-driven projects that, hopefully, make the world a little bit better. It’s why we run initiatives like Ladies, Wine & Design, Open Design Area, Meet a Designer, and ADG-FAD.
We believe in ethical business models. Sustainability and social responsibility are a big deal for us. So, we’re selective about the projects we work on.
Our approach is collaborative. We know creative freedom requires trust, so we cultivate a space for projects to grow and thrive, together. That’s part of our core philosophy as a studio. And it’s present in everything we do, both inside and outside the studio. Which includes our many participatory design projects and initiatives.
