Our Ideology

The Mission

Mustache & Monocle is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of design and redefining how we do business by investing in design education.

With each project we receive we are able to invest in social and design impact.

Impact Design

We believe that social impact and profitability are not mutually exclusive, and that It is possible to connect the profit maximizing part of our business with our socially conscious, compassionate heart.

What is Impact Design?

"Impact Design" brings social, environmental, sustainable, human-centered, public-interest, and other related design disciplines together to create positive change and lasting impact in communities. 

At Mustache & Monocle we define design as the process by which a physical object—a product, building, car, or road—is made and a digital experience is created.

OUR IMPACT

For every project we receive, a percentage goes to investing in educational and skill sharing projects in Peru.

Education & Skills Share

Design for New Development

Having worked in Peru and living in rural communities, I saw the lack of access to design education as an opportunity to share modern design knowledge that can positively impact the quality of life for the common good of the environment and the community's socio-economic needs. Through the investment of education and skills sharing opportunities we create a platform where developing communities begin to create projects that apply design efficiencies to their everyday lives rendering a return of a more environmentally and socially conscious community. 

"Inadequate education produces high costs for society in terms of public spending, crime, health, and economic growth. No country can afford to leave too many of its children behind and not to help them achieve the competencies needed for a self-fulfilled life in economic independence." 

(Global Economic Symposium. Effective Investments In Education. Symposium 2012)

 

Put Into Practice

Skills Sharing

If you give hands on experience to a community such as: sharing different methods of construction, design systems and environmental economic thinking, this experience will be carried into to their professional fields and in daily lives.

We want to share design knowledge and information to both teach and learn with developing communities to cultivate the opportunity for more environmental and human centered communities.

Growth and change is inevitable however, by sharing existing knowledge of design practices we can pursuit a more conscious approach to developing communities world wide.
