Engineers with a focus on people
We are an experienced team that created successful fact-based designs for large and small companies alike. Our studio is small by design, so each customer gets our full attention.

mbstudio was founded in 2016 by Meike Mak and Bart van Lieshout. We come from different design masters at the Technical University of Delft and have been working together for some years on designs for websites and apps.
Fact-based design is about creating solutions based on insights. We gather insights with strategic design research and base our concepts on a sound understanding of the user goals.
This approach can save time and money. The design is based on more than assumptions, so it will be a better fit with the user needs.
Practice what you preach
We advise customers to base their decisions on facts. And we practice what we preach. When we had to come up with a name for our design studio, we followed a fact-based process. With an surprising outcome.
Tool: colors in action
When mixing colors for a project, nothing beats staring at a beautiful pallet. Except seeing the colors in action. We like to see them together, with typography and in different combinations. All combinations actually. So we created a simple tool to do just that.
