makemake origins

Our story starts with . . . a dwarf planet, in fact. Planet 2005 FY9 is a tiny world discovered floating in the Kuiper belt. Shortly thereafter, just like the other Kuiper belt objects, 2005 FY9 was given the name of a creator deity – the Rapa Nui Makemake (pronounced “MAH-ke MAH-ke”).

For the Rapa Nui, an indigenous population of Easter Island, Makemake “is the creator of humanity, the god of fertility and the chief god of the bird-man cult,” so says Wikipedia. There are loads of fascinating petroglyphs and monuments carved in the likeness of Makemake all over Easter Island.

Our focus at makemake (pronounced “māk-māk”) is creation and cosmic marketing that inspire our clients and their stakeholders. We felt that the “makemake” name was the perfect name to hoist upon our banners. It wonderfully defines our aesthetic interests and melds crazy and disparate worlds into a unique wholeness.
