WabiSabi Collective

We are a multilingual collective that comes together to collaborate on design, visual arts, and translation for independent and commercial projects.

The philosophy of “Wabi-Sabi” comes from Japanese culture and, in part, teaches us about perfect imperfection. As we apply this to the creative process, we take from it the appreciation of the constant evolving nature of everything around us; that nothing is perfect, nothing is ever finished, and everything can always be improved.

As a multilingual team with an eclectic skill-set, we bring to the table an understanding of different cultures and in turn deliver ideas that speak more than one language. We have been fortunate in working with artists and creatives from around the world and clients from New York to San Francisco, Miami, Madrid and Caracas.

Our experience includes branding and identity, cross-format art direction, conceptualizing and design. Combined with translation, we’ve established a broad scope in various fields ranging from multimedia and publishing to corporate, defense, and manufacturing.
