Hi there! We are Makii.
A design studio from Rotterdam.
With colourful and crazy characters we want to inspire kids to let their creativity explode!
We believe that creativity and playing together stimulate children’s imagination and let them learn in a playful way.
Makii was founded in 2013 by illustrators Mielo Pouwer and Idris van Heffen and is based in Rotterdam.
We saw all kinds of opportunities to develop creative and innovative products for children. So we bundled our talents and started drawing.
Nowadays, the world of Makii consists of giant colouring pictures, window clings, tattoos, rub-on transfers and adventure packs in various themes and sizes.
Makii (a play on the word ‘make’) became a great success after the launch of our first product: the giant colouring picture.
We were noticed by all kinds of online and offline media, received our first international orders and gradually expanded our product range.
Today our products are sold all over the world. We are proud of our great partnerships with retailers, organizations and distributors.
Together we inspire kids to let their creativity explode!
MAKII TAILOR MADE
With Makii TAILOR MADE we design unique and sustainable custom products for organizations such as Rijksmuseum, Liverpool FC, hotel chain CitizenM and HEMA with the aim of creating personal and appealing adventures for kids.
Because we believe that a special story needs a unique product, we design and manufacture Tailor Made products from sketch to finished product. We look for the most suitable form that is necessary to convey the story of the organization.
The projects vary from pins to giant colouring pictures and from catering industry DIY packs to entire corporate identities.
Makii wishes a bright future for everyone.
That’s why we produce our entire collection in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We only use FSC paper and work together with the greenest printing companies.
We also plant trees in collaboration with the organization TreesforAll. This way we offset the emissions of our products and we can proudly say that our entire collection is produced in a climate-neutral way.
LET’S WORK TOGETHER
We’ll keep growing and dreaming. From a Makii animation series to designing a playground, nothing is too crazy for us!
