We are MICRO.


We are MICRO

/a student design firm building connections within the Kansas City community.

Based in the Kansas City Art Institute's Illustration Department, MICRO brings together talented students from a variety of different disciplines to collaborate on the best-quality work our combined skills can offer. Every member of our team has their own unique voice, methods, and strengths, and together we produce eye-catching, vibrant, show-stopping work for our clients.

Many of our clients come to us not only with a job in mind, but with a desire to build a positive, lasting relationship with both KCAI and its up-and-coming illustrators and designers. This allows us to flex our skills as young professionals: creating excellent art, interacting with clients face-to-face, keeping up with tight deadlines, and presenting our work to both clients and audiences alike. We're not just making art and design-- we're building relationships, both in and out of the classroom.

MICRO is also a part of KCAI's Sponsored Studio program, which helps facilitate students' desire to do professional-quality work with real clients outside the bubble of academia. Visit KCAI's Sponsored Studio for more information.

Let's create together.
