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 Feminist and LGBTQ+ individual and organisations, but we will never compromise on our values.

1

Studio Lutalica is at the forefront of a revolution. Fighting for gender equality, diversity and inclusion is no more an option: it’s a priority we’re committed to achieving.

 

2

We are challenging the status quo by providing services for underrepresented communities. We are inspired by a desire to move the lines, contributing to changing the perception of people.

 

3

We are a proud team of caring, strong, creative and open-minded professionals who share the same values.

 

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 give a chance to creatives part of the Feminist and/or Queer communities to grow and learn in a safe environment where their activism and values ​​will not be an obstacle to their success.

 

6

We respect the dignity of every human with all their differences in any condition. 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 helping at the best of our capabilities every Feminist and/or Queer client and project that in need of our services, with no restriction of ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, class or geography, as long as they share our values and ethics.

 

8

We believe that saving the planet is a priority for the world. We picked our battle and decided to fight for gender equality and LGBTQ+ rights, but we won’t engage with any organisation or individuals we suspect might not be responsibly interacting with the planet to sustain natural resources and avoid threatening the ability for future generations to meet their needs.

 

9

We are in a constant process of learning. Although we are experts in this field, we know that we can always improve and won’t ever assume and we will always be committed to listen, research and find accessible solutions. It’s a trial and error process, but we promise to always get better.

 

10

Although our processes are agile and flexible, our ethics are non-negotiable. We believe none of us can ignore the political implications of our actions and we must take a stand, as individuals and organisations, and fight for our beliefs.

 

 

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 is will only ever include women, non-binary and 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.
