A bit about us
Made by Folk has always been about people. The people that make design and the people that are inspired by it. Here you'll find the individual stories behind the design.
The story so far
In 2007 FormFiftyFive was setup by Glenn Garriock, Jack Daly and an ever growing group of designers, illustrators, coders and makers eager to collect and share the best design work they came across, FFF soon became an international showcase of creative work.
A couple of years later in 2011, Daniel Freytag first thought about opening an online print store (previously Editions of 100). As a graphic designer, he was initially interested in creating a place to design outside the confines of the normal client – designer relationship. A design store gave this idea purpose. He was also aware that other designers were keen to get involved and explore a brief-less design existence.
Fast forward to 2018 and Daniel & Glenn decided to bring the two platforms together under the name Made by Folk, creating a place where we present the world’s best creative talents and share their stories with you.
Finding the best designs
That’s really the best and easiest bit. As creatives we always need to be aware of what’s going on in the industry. Whenever we see something we like, we make a note and check who’s behind the work. Most creatives don’t stop when they get home from work – there’s always a ‘side project’. So when we contact them, most are keen to get involved.
