Makai : the studio

Makai is a small design studio operating between Amsterdam and Miami, that specializes in branding, design and digital presence.

The foundation of building a strong and memorable brand starts by understanding its unique characteristics. Knowing who you are and what you stand for, so that you can speak to your audience in your own authentic, engaging way is what creates truly valuable experiences.

At Makai we take a very personal approach when working with our clients to ensure that we fully dedicate ourselves to each and every project.
We only take on a select amount of projects at any given time and treat each one with a lot of devotion.

We like to get to know you, understand what you want to bring forward and who you want to reach out to. This way we can craft a unique brand identity that can then be translated into any visual or strategic part of your brand.

All of our websites are custom designed and made. We don’t use website templates because we don’t believe in a one solution fits all. You’ll have something uniquely made especially for you that no one else has.

We believe in collaborating with projects that radiate creativity, promote sustainability and healthy living, and just awesome beautiful things with a purpose. We are very passionate about what we do and especially love working with people who aim to make this world better and more beautiful.



Whether you are just starting up or are looking to refresh your current identity, we are here to help. Creating a strong and unique branding is the core building block and your biggest asset.



We adore creativity and design is our passion. A fresh and original design that speaks to your target audience is what can make all the difference for your project.



Living in a digital era means meeting the needs for a strong digital presence. We combine creative design with user-friendly navigation along with the most up-todat technologies.
