In our line of work, we’re constantly discussing the dreams people have for their business. Some times these are problems to solve. More often they are big aspirations and bold moves. Everyone who is working forward is thinking about this on some level. It doesn’t seem to matter what their thing is or what the scale their business is. The question is often; where to next with this thing? What’s the next move to make? How can I make this better? Or, What can I do to make an impact on this? They’re all the same question and the list goes on… Everyone has their version of this, something which they dream of.
Dreams are not just for sleeping.
We like to get to know our clients and project leaders. So when their next big thing is to have a better brand, a kick ass website, a meaningful way to market, or way to drum up more business… we then become a part of that dream. We’re in this together.

For Nick Thorn (NTD) and Tim Meyer (Meijer) – launching Atollon in 2018 was our dream. Our next step. Our plan for the future. A way to live a good life doing what we love. This is what drives us forward. It keeps us learning and questioning. It makes what we do a constantly rewarding challenge while constantly dangles the carrot we all desire. Our problem was how can we do this better? And our dream was to make it happen. Faster horses, better relationships, older whiskey – for us, this is our time to dream big. We believe we can fly.
Nick Thorn Design and Meijer Made are no more. We’re proud to announce our next chapter, together. Atollon | a design company. Like two beers poured from the same tap, we’re amalgamation our branding and digital expertise to do more, do bigger, do better. It’s a partnership years in the making. A dream we’ve shared, hours and hours of conversations we’ve had, and the right time for this bold move to be made. As NTD and Meijer, we’ve both been fortunate to work with incredible people over the years. People who we’ve enjoyed working with, businesses who we don’t just see as ‘clients’, but as good friends. So, at the beginning of this exciting next phase, we’re looking forward to continuing those friendships and embarking on new relationships.
We love a good design challenge.
