Creating thoughtful, compelling experiences through design and illustration

Mkn design is a design and illustration studio, founded by Michael Nÿkamp. Motivated by problem-solving, Michael researches, questions, and listens–resulting in thoughtful, compelling experiences for brands around the world.

Michael's enthusiasm for the process drives him to perpetually create and explore opportunities in the world around him. (It's also his best remedy for relaxation.) His blog, Chronicles have become instrumental in his practice–a repository of inspiration, curiosity, and worthwhile studies.
