Mendesaltaren was born in 2017 as a result of the work of the founding associates – André Mendes and Danny Saltaren. It was born with the sole purpose of defining digital products with an excellent visual finish. It was born as an act of rebellion against conventionalism… we want to continuously reconsider work methodologies and never take anything for granted. It was born out of not playing along. It was born to stand out.
It was born with responsibility, confidence and process efficiency, while making a strong commitment to the client.
Today we help corporations and start-ups to launch digital products combining research, strategy, design and technology in order to get accurate, functional and aesthetic results.
We are a digital product boutique that helps improve the relationship between companies, people and technology through design, thanks to our highly qualified team and refined process.
Responsibility, tenacity, confidence, process efficiency, establishing a strong commitment to the client. Pure, usable, aesthetic and rational design.
To constantly question the status quo and take nothing for granted. To stand out.
Decency, honesty, integrity and transparency in our modus operandi.
Search for the essential, necessary and intrinsic qualities that determine and differentiate a company, a project or an idea. We respect and help enhance that essence.
An experienced team of thinkers qualified to design accurately, efficiently and slickly.
Exceptional project management that reduces uncertainty and ensures the process is both enjoyable and stimulating for the client. Continuous attention throughout the project.
We produce meticulous work, created in a personalised way that results in high-performance final products.
Conscious reconsideration of our methodologies with a self-critical approach. We strive to continuously improve.
Located in Milan, the Fondazione Prada building (project carried out by OMA, Rem Koolhaas’s architecture firm, a big reference for us) is the reference that visually defines the concept around mendesaltaren’s values – elegant defiance.
The architecture style speaks to responsibility, strength and rationality. The normalisation of this architecture and its cladding instils honesty, essentiality and respect for the institution. Elegance.
Its gold finish is impressive and instantly differentiates it from the surrounding buildings. This shows defiance and a resistance to conventionalism. It doesn’t play along, it stands out.
The diamonds make a circle that symbolises unity, harmony, cooperation, rigour and balance.
Each diamond represents every team, the human factor, the people that make up our company and who are what we most value at Mendesaltaren.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
100k steps, more than 100k steps on my feets. But the sun’s gonna rise, the sun’s gonna rise like everyday
