Maker llc, founded in 2012, might be one of the region’s most inventive workplaces. The collection of creatives has been producing graphic designs, product designs, and environmental designs for over a decade.
The Mequon-based design firm has recently gotten a whole lot more inventive. It has spun out a design company that focuses on medical devices, Maker Healthcare Inc. With an emphasis on technologies used by those with disabilities or injuries, the new company aims to “disrupt the assistive device industry” with its revolutionary wheelchair technology.
Launched in 2021, the new company was co-founded by industrial designer and CEO Ryan Ramos, and Maker llc CEO, Heidi Ramos. The pair are partners both in business and in life. The couple met while students at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD), and have been inspiring, and challenging, each other ever since.
