We are Momkai, a strategic design studio for meaningful member experiences.

The home of memberful design. We create meaningful member experiences online and in the real world — from design strategy and brand identities to digital platforms and launch events. We've helped to establish global platforms, break crowdfunding records, and build impactful brands.

Our designs cultivate calm – so only the content can drive you to distraction.

Our philosophy is to cultivate calm. These principles underpin all the work that we design and develop. We believe that people don’t connect to merely facts; they connect to storytellers and their stories. In 2016, we introduced this design philosophy of calm at the Stedelijk Museum of modern art.

As written by our founder, Harald Dunnink.

We're co-founders of De Correspondent, the ad-free, member-funded journalism platform for unbreaking news.

News as we know it leaves us cynical, divided, and less informed. De Correspondent is founded on 10 principles that outline the commitment to independent and inclusive journalism. For the launch in 2013, our campaign reached a world record-amount of members through crowdfunding. In 2018, the English-language campaign followed. In 30 days, 45,888 members in 130 countries set a new member-record in journalism crowdfunding.

According to Press Gazette, it's now the third largest membership journalism platform in the world, after the Guardian and Die Zeit.

Made by Momkai, Verwondering is an eye-opening podcast about design.

In Verwondering, we talk with other creatives and entrepreneurs about what makes good design work. Previous guests include garden designer Piet Oudolf, known for The High Line in New York, Hussein Suleiman, cofounder of cultural phenomenon Daily Paper, and creative director Amber Jae Slooten of The Fabricant, the world's first digital-only fashion house. Since design begs to be seen, we combine this with a platform full of galleries: the visual show notes.
