About Mikey Burton

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 HOW, Print, Communication Arts, Graphis and, most recently, 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, Wired and Facebook.
