Who Am I

I am Matthijs Kamstra aka [mck], a designer/developer from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
In the daytime I work as a creative developer but from dusk till dawn I transform into a new kind of superhero: a papertoy designer!
It all started with my papertoy called Grumm, which was more a test if-I-could-do-it.
I can and still do! And love it!
My papertoys mostly end up as robots and I love to experiment with shapes/curves.
But the experiments with paper make my papertoys sometimes a bit difficult for children.
Then again, I don’t think papertoys are only for kids.
