Mek (formerly Vertigo) is a purpose-driven design studio combining ethics, sustainability, and creativity into brands and experiences that benefit people and the planet.

As experts in branding and design we help businesses and organisations build and improve brands, define core values, communicate clearly and compellingly, engage people, and meet growing demands for social and environmental responsibility.

Because how we all live, work, and consume is no longer sustainable to the planet and its resources. We believe there’s a better way. Mek exists to effect change by inspiring people to make choices that shape a better tomorrow.

Mek: Armenian for ‘one’. One people. One planet. Join us.
