MAIK

Andreas Sachse and I co-founded MAIK in January 2010 with the ambition to create a new type of product brand in Vesterbro where we could both sell our products, and gain valuable feedback from our customers first hand. Among other things I was responsible for product design, user experience and working with factories in Shenzhen, China.

With an eye for everyday design solutions, guerilla marketing, CSR events and with help from a large community of talented people, MAIK redefined what a product brand can become. 

Our bicycle accessoires started with an urban transportation problem and was solved with handbuilt bike crates in flight case look. Second version was designed and sourced in Shenzhen, China. 

Collaboration with Coffee Collective 

With Klaus Thompsen from The Coffee Collective, we set out to design a series of coffee glasses that would keep the aroma, while heightening the visual experience.

MAIK NO MORE

After having been in the brick-and-mortar
retail business for one year and running the company webshop for another four, we decided to close MAIK in 2015, with many experiences and learnings along the way.
