Designy Illustrator

Mikey Burton is a part time designer and a part time illustrator—which adds up to a full time Designy Illustrator.  He’s been working professionally for over 12 years now, but claims to be ‘still figuring it out.’ He’s done a lot of work in that time for clients such as Converse, ESPN, Target, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and Esquire, among others. He has won awards from organizations such as the Art Directors Club, Communication Arts and Print Magazine to name a few, and enjoys bragging about it in the third person. He spent his formative years and earned a masters degree from the great Kent State University in Ohio. Burton now works and lives in Brooklyn, NY where he pays way too much for coffee.
