Mek specialises in strategy, identity and design to help forward-thinking companies and founders communicate their vision for a better future. Our impact-led approach pushes boundaries and challenges convention to imagine new ideas. We create compelling and innovative outcomes that resonate deeply with people and convey hope, progress and possibility. Our unwavering commitment to positive change ensures exceptional brand transformation to help our partners create lasting impact with measurable results.

Mek: Armenian for one. One people. One planet. Let’s do better together.

“I can’t imagine a better design team than Mek for a purpose-driven brand. Mek invested in establishing a genuine knowledge of what we wanted to change in the world and how we’re able to do it; to the extent that I would describe them as ambassadors of our cause.

The work that Mek produces for us is consistently effective and has elevated our communications and the presentation of our brand, fit for a global audience. We cherish our partnership with Mek and couldn’t be more grateful for the incredible work they deliver in the name of our mission.”
