Michael Flarup

Michael Flarup is a designer from Denmark. He lives on the island of Zealand in the medieval city of Køge with his wife and two children. He started making things on his computer in his teens in the late 90s and hasn’t stopped since. Michael’s career of pursuing fun in what he does has led him to run companies and initiatives that have produced products, apps, services, events and games that have been experienced by millions of people.

‘Just making things that make me happy’ is usually how Michael explains his multidisciplinary career. His signature visual style is best described as vibrant and playful. Today you’ll find him running his game studio Northplay, freelancing as a graphic designer or speaking at conferences around the world while getting involved in as many side projects he can manage while being a dad.
