Founded in 2000, makelike is a multi-disciplinary graphic design collective headed by artist/designers Mary Kysar and Topher Sinkinson. They are based out of Portland, Oregon and have a small studio in New Orleans, Louisiana. Their studio’s design mission is to create work that is unique, sophisticated and covetable—and almost definitely includes at least one pattern. They started their product line in 2009, with a focus on specialty wallpaper and textiles. Today, we also design, illustrate and produce custom patterns and wallpaper for interior design and architectural clients that have specific needs.
The makelike studio generates art direction, graphic design, pattern design and illustration for publishing, editorial, marketing, retail, exhibition, product development and identity & brand applications for clients big and small, near and far.
The makelike shop illustrates, designs and produces their own line of luxury hand-screenprinted wallpaper and textiles, as well as small goods for the home.
