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.

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.
