This study aims to analyse, describe and reflect on how Mathematics and Teaching Project (Pmate) history can influence the most relevant creative decisions when restructuring and redesigning it. Pmate is a 32-year-old research project based on an online platform created and coordinated by a team from the University of Aveiro. Its mission is to achieve academic success and promote scientific culture through the development of content and its application by technologies. In this article, relevant moments of Pmate’s history and the evolution of its identity are identified, defined and discussed through the collection of information, specifically through interviews with people involved in the project during its implementation and the analysis of graphic documentation produced. The result is the outline of the relevant critical factors guiding the new updated Pmate’s brand and service.
