Manifesto

‘I would describe Lutalica as colourful but also pastel’, summarised a team member. ‘Both cheerful, full of energy, lively, rock-n-roll style but also with a very harmonious and elegant sense of belonging both in ourselves and between ourselves.’

We are thrilled to work with a wide range of Feminist and LGBTQ+ individual and organisations. We welcome difference, but will not compromise on our core values.

1

Fighting for gender equality, diversity and inclusion isn’t a box-ticking exercise for us: it’s a priority.

 

2

We are challenging the status quo by providing bespoke services for underrepresented communities. We are motivated by our desire to challenge expectations and shift perceptions. 

 

3

We give creatives from the Feminist and Queer communities the chance to grow in a safe environment where their values ​​will not be an obstacle to their success.

 

 

 

4

Everyone at Studio Lutalica should feel like a solver, a helper, a changemaker. We are building a strong community of engaged people who are ready to make a difference.

 

5

We are a proud team of caring, strong, creative and open-minded professionals who share many of the same values; but freely acknowledge where we differ. 

 

6

We respect the dignity of every human with all their differences. We believe that no one should be judged on the basis of their ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or class.

 

 

7

We are committed to giving our all to clients, regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, class or geography. The important thing is that they share our commitment to equality.

 

8

Although Lutalica’s focus is on gender equality and LGBTQ+ rights, we believe protecting the environment is everyone’s responsibility. That’s why we won’t engage with any organisation that is putting unsustainable pressure on planetary resources

 

9

We are in a perpetual ‘learning phase’. Studio Lutalica are a team of experts in their field, but we don’t make the mistake of assuming we know everything. We value listening as much as speaking, and question our beliefs, whilst staying true to our principles.

 

10

We bring our ethics to the office. Studio Lutalica believes politics and identity can and should be part of the working environment. 

 

 

Studio Lutalica started from the idea of Cecilia Righini, non-binary queer and feminist Design Manager. Marrying their passion for design and their activism, they aim to support the Feminist and Queer communities – helping them with good and accessible design – and educate businesses to become more inclusive. The name comes from The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrow and refers to ‘the part of your identity that doesn’t fit into categories’.

To provide more jobs to people who may have fewer opportunities because of their gender and/or sexuality, the team currently includes only women and/or LGBTQ+ people.

We are also committed not to ever work with unsustainable companies which may cause harm to the planet or that are not in line with our values of diversity, inclusion and accessibility.

We are committed to tailoring the prices of our services depending on the budget and the scale of the social impact of each client/project.

Because our aim is to support the Feminist and LGBTQ+ communities, our quotes will always depend on a series of criteria (country, sector, etc.) and we do not exclude the possibility of pro-bono services in case we strongly believe in a project/client and our budget will allow it.
