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 Atlantic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Converse, ESPN, Facebook, Fast Company, Monocle, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wilco, Wired and you.
