Menta is a communication design studio in Valencia, specialising in various fields related to design and advertising. Its profile ranges from consulting and the coordination of corporate identity projects to the production of catalogues, web projects, space, signage and book design as well as video and motion-graphics production.

Elisa Gómez, Raül Climent and Xavi Calvo each come from different academic fields related to art and design. They acquired their expertise in different studios and communication agencies before becoming Estudio Menta's creative team. Thus, their professional background has allowed the studio to develop its projects from different perspectives and manage its design from a realistic and creative approach, taking into account every small detail with the freshness and motivation required to face any challenge.

There is a huge difference between making a request to an outside company and finding a companion to
go along with you on a venture. And
I prefer a travel companion. Trade
relations are cold, they say, but as a
character in the Boston Legal series says 'All it takes for evil to succeed is for good people to say, "It's a business."'

Working with Menta is not just about business, it is about having an ally, a partner. All of a sudden the studio converges (or merges) with the project’s DNA to become one. This engagement
is contagious. This fusion between
client and studio is, in my opinion, Menta’s main virtue, even above demanding professional experience
free of fake smiles.

It is this joint responsibility that prevents Menta’s work from being or becoming a foreign element within an alien project. The process of creation becomes an experience that adds value as well as knowledge on a personal level. This happens because Menta is
not just about business.

I have an experience I’d like to share. Last times I visited Menta, the temperature has not been below 30ºC. After overcoming the challenge of leaving my car and heading for Cuenca Tramoyeres street, I could literally feel the air cooling down, and I breathed
a sigh of relief. But what is truly surprising is that when the door at number 6 is open, a crispy Menta air invades your body and soul.

Getting into the Menta Studio is truly like putting a fresh piece of gum in your mouth, the freshness of a sparkling, sharp, funny and pure flavour.
I hope to repeat the same ritual many times, because that feeling does not end when you leave. On the contrary, it both endures and recharges. And, believe me, it is highly addictive.

"’Design and Communication Studio’,
at least that’s what their website says. But maybe that’s a bit too cold and impersonal a way to define the way they work. Working with them (I've always felt I worked with them, never that they worked for me), you can feel their desire to believe in what they’re doing, in what they’re selling. For them, there is no design without passion.

It is likely that it is this passion which has enabled them to achieve such a
high production ability without losing perspective. The business continues to grow, but what is most important to them is to be true to themselves, personalizing their service to each customer and truly feeling and
believing in the job they are doing.

Menta advocates that a good design enhances many things, and the team is aware of the social and educational impact their work can have. They are daring, very daring, but avoid provoking just for the sake of it, which might be due to this social awareness of their work. You always find something different in what they do, something fresh, as they say: ‘something Menta (‘mint’), staying away from excessive fanfare, which is highly appreciated.

It is this subtle difference, this Menta touch which helps the customer to feel they are part of the final product. You feel you are part of it because they have listened to you, they have helped you, they have shared the project with you and they have done an excellent Design and Communication Studio job for you. Listening, thinking and sharing is what makes them different."
