About us

We are a branding and design studio focused on the creation of global and multilingual brands for start-ups, established companies and creative agencies in need of a partner. We help our customers tear down the barriers to competitiveness, whether expanding their business to emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Middle East or growing in developed markets like Europe.

Big-thinking
Brands need a big-thinking partner to stand out. That’s why we are called Mayúscula, Spanish for capital letter. Because we believe in going further, maximizing your full potential in a complex marketplace in constant state of flux.

Solid experience
Rocío Martinavarro, founder of Mayúscula, has 17 year of brand design experience. Over her career, she has designed for leading brands, including the Spanish Broadcast Corporation (RTVE), Qatar Rail, Red.es (Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade), Abertis Telecom, The World Bank Group, Deltatre, Carolina Herrera, Agility, PepsiCo, SEAT, Adif (Spanish Administrator of Railway Infrastructures), and “la Caixa”.

Cross-cultural team
Mayúscula’s global approach is reflected in its creative team. We build a bespoke international network of expert collaborators whom we partner with to meet the unique needs of each project.

Excellence standards

We are commited to excellence standards needed by global brands in terms of design quality, time efficiency, management transparency, accountability or production techniques, and at the same time, with experience in developing super flexible brand frameworks and designs that connect with users of different origins.

Sharing Knowledge

Our mission of helping brands go further drives us to participate in events and educational programs. Mayúscula gives lectures, workshops and master classes on topics ranging from global branding, multilingual design, internationalization, localization, transcreation and visual identity. Some examples include the OFFF Festival, CreaCities and the best design schools in Barcelona.
