This is aknDesign.

We are an independent agency exploring joy & play.


Open App

An investor-backed app concept to
nurture a sense of togetherness
& to overcome unfamiliarity.


Client Forward

We pride in happy clients.
And our clients are happy for it.

Stand out beautifully.

aknDesign delivers a balance of interactive play, critical and practical problem solving into compelling design solutions. We focus on visual identity, branding, & web development.

Take Eunoia, an innovative start-up offshoot from Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, with ties to YPlan app. Eunioa requested a fresh brand & website that expressed beauty, depth and complexity, without overwhelming the casual observer. We worked with the startup for almost a year to ensure we had got their brand, stationary, and website just right.

And that’s the tip of the iceberg, as the saying goes. We have continued to form relationships from DJs and artists to federally-funded research groups and NGOs. And when we are not soaking in the amazing creative vibe of London, our home, we have submitted our work for a number of awards and exhibitions, ran a festival, developed an annual book for several years, and fundraised thousands of dollars for polio vaccinations. We are what the kids call “awesome”— and we would like to bring that to the table when we meet with you.  Have a new company that needs a visual storefront? Is there something that the world needs to know? Or do you just need a designer’s eye to look over an item?  Give us a ring or pop an email. We doubt you’ll be disappointed.

Alexander from aknDesign provided excellent service, both with artistic options and agile practices in working with myself as the client. I will absolutely return to Alexander for my future design needs.

Nathan Mots, DJ

aknDesign went above and beyond to give their perspective while respecting what I was looking for. Their designers were fantastic to work with.

Neuhaus Improvements

Amazing work! aknDesign didn’t just make a great looking logo, but fantastic set of business cards that are a pleasure to interact with clients. Definitely a conversation starter!

Kyla Harris, Independent Artist

aknDesign took an incredibly difficult branding challenge (a research group in a very technical and niche field) and surpassed every one of our expectations. The result is beautiful, accessible, and an expression of our work and vision.
