VOLTA is an independent Branding & Design studio based in Porto, Portugal. We shape creative and effective brands and experiences, blending different disciplines to overcome communication and design problems.

With a focus on BRANDING and PACKAGING, our goal is to create meaningful brands, setting their promises and products apart from their competitors and closer to their audience.
In order to achieve that, we set our production quality standards very high, dedicating ourselves to the perfect execution of our ideas.

We like to work with a wide selection of clients, from small startups to big and established companies, delivering projects that look to make a difference. Our flexibility and experience, blended with a constant desire to learn new areas of expertise and breaking out of our comfort zone are key points for our success.

The studio is run by Pedro Vareta — Founder & Creative Partner and Lourenço Neves — Managing Partner. Our creative, focused and flexible design team makes regular partnerships with both established and young creatives, including strategists, copywriters, developers, illustrators, photographers or manufacturers, which allows us to handle small or large scale projects with bold creativity and experienced craftsmanship.

If you have a project that you wish to discuss with us don’t hesitate to get in touch.
