The need to combine two creative areas, design and crafts, gave rise to Picotado · Design Studio & Crafts. It was officially presented to the public in February 2014 with the opening of the first space in the city of Porto. In a small independent building, located at Travessa de Cedofeita 49, Picotado combined a design studio and a craft shop. In that location, they promoted and marketed products from various authors, hosted events and exhibitions, and also worked with clients on their design and communications needs. In addition to all this, in order to grow and reach a bigger audience, they also launched the Picotado · Design Studio & Crafts online shop. At the beginning of 2015, Picotado ended up leaving this space for a different location in the heart of Quarteirão das Artes at Rua da Maternidade 124, where they continued to design all the work that defined them and also organized creative workshops. In 2016, almost turning two years old, Picotado · Design Studio & Crafts underwent some metamorphoses in its operations, ceasing to have a physical space and focusing exclusively on digital work and sales.
