about us

Prata Design is a multidisciplinary studio that celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2023.

It unites strategy and design, communication, research, visual culture, technology and data to work in the expanded field of graphic design, for any interface.

Didiana Prata is at the head of the studio that works as a creative hub, bringing together a team of experienced professionals who are attentive to events in an increasingly digitized, complex and diverse world.


Defining how images compose a narrative to convey a message is our main strength. For us, the image in design is the fundamental element for the creation of contemporary visual identities for multiple supports, both printed and digital.

We apply our own methodology to investigate and conceptualize the elements and visual language of institutions, brands, people and exhibitions. Through collaborative practices, we offer consulting, follow-up of creative processes, workshops and creation of printed and digital graphic pieces. We keep a permanent dialogue between academic research and our professional activities for the market.


Over these 25 years, we have delivered projects in the field of culture (visual arts, fashion, music, cinema), education, environment, architecture and design, food, third sector and for companies aligned with ESG concepts.

 Prata Design creates an imaginary for a better future.
