Portuguese term or phrase: entre o "handmade" e o design para diversas mídias
This is the "about us" section on a design partner company's website. I'm having trouble with the language here. I really don't think what they've written makes much sense in Portuguese... but nonetheless. I'm ok until I get to the "entre o 'handmade' e o design para diversas mídias'". Many times in these texts from the marketing world, Brazilians use words in English differently than we use them. Perhaps this is one of those instances.....

"A xxx, escritório de criação com uma linguagem que estabelece um diálogo vibrante, colorido e bem humorado entre o 'handmade' e o design para diversas mídias."

(xxx is where the name of the company goes)

handmade


Explanation:
I think they used the world as a literal translation, because in portuguese there is not a word alone that fully translates the world "handmade". (for instance artesal), not quite the same.
