Night out in town with the guys 👩🏼✌🏻
Extra extra large scale forest illustration for #bornovachildhoodmuseum, which is currently under construction and will be open next year. Muk has designed the graphics for the exhibition space with all the interactive learning stations and cool toys. We’ve also created an identity and wayfinding system including the large murals like this one. This is a darker, moodier version of the original piece, I have to say though. It’s very very exciting to wait for the opening of this beautiful building. I suddenly feel like an architect. And of course, a huge pleasure along the way working with my entrepreneurial soulmate @gorkemrabiakanat and her team. 🍀💚
Sneak peek into one of the most exciting projects from last year—redesigning a digital platform for Mitsubishi. As part of its global rebranding, we designed a responsive web experience that embodies “Mitsubishi-ness”—contemporary Japanese aesthetic meets an excellent craftsmanship tradition. This micro journey helps customers choose the best Mitsubishi for their needs. Full project coming soon on our website. The animation was made on #adobexd, thanks to @stephanie4xd for passing on her #xd skills on a very private, super exclusive tutorial. What do you think? ⠀ Client: Mitsubishi Agency: Critical Mass⠀ Art direction: Blair Jarvis
Spring in London reminds me of the time I started my courtship with this inspiring city. It was 2012, and I visited @csm_news for the first time for a short course and I felt like I’ve finally arrived home. This was the early days of @muk.design. I did “Entrepreneurship for Creatives” by @alisonbranagan — game changing. But more so was the people I met. Marina, Vishal and Jake. Three universes on extreme ends, all sharing a love for wigs, personas and light voyeurism. This photo by @vishalkswamy is the memory from a night out in town I’ll forever remember. And I’m forever thankful to London for giving me so many muses, beautiful friendships, a creative tribe and so many new visions. So happy that life brought me here and changed me from the core.

Attention attention! We've just launched our huge passion project that has been brewing on the side for quite a while, and we're finally ready to share it with you. ⠀ ⠀ 😍 @s_m_u_k_ 😍⠀ ⠀ It's a little sister brand to @muk.design that allows us to tip our toes into the world of fashion, something that we've been very enthusiastic about from so early on. It feels like it was meant to be. Through this channel, we're creating fashion accessories made out of a very special type of paper leather, called parchment. Designing for a minimalist, romantic and edgy woman, it's all about attitude and a strong, quiet sense of self. Check out this new and exciting project that we've truly given from the heart and share this stylish journey with us.⠀ ⠀ Also a big shout out to the lovely @carlabenzing for her magical photography, and opening up her beautiful space @Blank100, which is now part of London history. And huge thanks to our very special model @kind_yoga_life for bringing her gorgeous presence into this project. We feel very lucky to have worked with you two on this, and feel blessed by your energy. ⠀ ⠀ Art direction, styling and all the love in the world by @muk.design ❤️
