Malcontent is a small, and ambitious lab with the goal to produce work with meaning and intention. The name reflects our feelings about boundaries and definitions.

Malcontent was founded by Mark Kingsley, who has over 25 years experience in design and strategy, across many sectors: financial services, retail, arts & culture, music, advertising, technology and telecommunication.

We collaborate with a variety of specialists when the need arises: developers, strategists, writers, illustrators, photographers, etc.

Malcontent is based in New York City, with partners both near and far.

And if we can ever be of help, even outside of expected models or configurations, please don’t hesitate to ask. Together, we just might discover new territory.
