Manuka Studio was founded by Marta Malesińska and Natalia Baranowska – graduates of the Faculty of Graphic Design at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and St. Joost Academy in Breda, The Netherlands.
We gained experience in Poland and abroad during studies and while working in design studios.
Today Manuka is a team of creators working in the field of graphic design.
We assign great value to the direct participation of a client in the design process. When setting off for a new project we always start with a careful diagnosis of the client’s expectations. We analyze attentively the context for a design solution. We know how to listen.
Our clients range from public institutions, publishing houses, NGOs and private companies.
Our projects have been presented in international exhibitions (Tokyo, New York), as well as in foreign publications featuring the newest graphic design projects.
We our proud members of the Polish Association of Graphic Designers.
EDITIORIAL GRAPHIC DESIGN
Our studio provides a thorough supervision of the editorial process: from the cover and layout design, typesetting until final stages of production. Our team consists of experienced editors, DTP specialists, and trusted printing houses. Our expertise lies both in printed and digital publications.
We design complex identity systems, which are able to support communication strategies of companies for extended period of time. Within visual identity design systems we design logotypes, prints, all kinds of promotional materials, as well as consistent visuals for web and social media. We provide our clients with functional brand manuals. Our team assists in the implementation process, and helps to maintain a consistent brand character.
In our studio we take great care of the functionality and beauty of web design. Our team of experienced UI / UX designers and web developers ensures the reliability of our projects across all platforms and devices. We adjust websites for excellent performance, and make sure they meet the requirements of SEO. Additionally we pay attention to users with special needs. Apart from developing new web projects we provide SEO and UX/UI audits. Our offer is fully flexible – we make sure to provide tailor-made solutions suitable for expectations and budget of our clients.
We design board games – starting with an idea for a plot supported with functional mechanics (i.e. game engine), carefully devised functional elements and completed with unconventional graphic visuals. We specialize in educational board games, which aim to communicate knowledge in interesting and original way.
