An Ohio native, Mikey Burton proudly describes his design aesthetic as “Midwesterny” and draws much of his inspiration from artifacts found throughout the hardworking, blue collar Rust Belt: old type-specimen sheets, arcane equipment manuals and ancient textbooks. Burton has received awards from Communication Arts, Graphis, HOW, Print and ADC Young Guns. He is now a freelancer in sunny Philadelphia where he designs and illustrates for such clients as The New York Times, The Atlantic, Newsweek, GOOD, Nike, Wired, Facebook and you.

Illustration for f8, the Facebook developers conference. This was a 6 foot long illustration printed digitally on a glass table. The whole theme of the conference was rolling up your sleeves and getting it done… hence all the tools.
