Unsung heroes – Mike Arnold. Or @MKRNLD

26 Aug

I thought today it was about time to pay tribute to one of the many unsung heroes of TKOE. And my number one choice is Chief Designer Mike.

He is one of the small band of TKOE elves, but is really the grand master of them all. He’s behind the blog design, the website design, all those fab photos of TKOE stock.  He designed or co-designed with Rosie the TKOE tshirt and bag designs. And the tea towels.

Much more than that, he is a blooming miracle with new ideas – and just spending a couple of hours with him yesterday, we sketched out lots of things right the way through to next year. Best of all, nothing is impossible, and he’s got this endless ability to find new sources of information and ideas.

He’s endlessly patient with my inability to do simple things with the web; he’s game for trying any cake as long as it’s an interesting one; and he keeps all of us thoroughly cheered up when things aren’t looking so good.

He does all of this at the same time as developing his own business, and you can take a peek at his work here:



And what’s more, you can buy it too. Or buy his graphic design skills. Which, I think you will all agree, are pretty damn good.

So, thank you Mike – I think we need your picture on the TKOE Facebook page, you know!
