Who are we?
We are 2 graphic designers based in Singapore. While continuing to slave in the industry, we also want to create things out of our love for design, and not bounded by the the rules of a brief. Instead of papers, we wanted to share our designs using different mediums. The idea of Made by Mate was to make you feel like the things are created with love by a friend. We produce our designs in small batches so that it will feel more exclusive to own it. At the end of day we just want to enjoy what we do, and in turn, you will enjoy them too.
Do you design everything?
Yes! Everything here is designed and created by us from scratch. We source our suppliers and manufacturers locally and internationally. Our materials are handpicked by us and they go through multiple rounds of mock-ups and selection before they are produced.
How long do you take to launch your designs?
We do not run on "weekly, monthly” launch kinda thing, as we are only a two-men team designing and operating everything by ourselves. Our designs will launch when we finalised and make sure they are good enough to see the world! The best way is to follow us on instagram as we usually post our progress and WIPs on it!
Are you open to collaboration?
Yes! We are always open to collaboration. If you have a great idea to share with us, please feel free to contact us! I will also be honest that if you are a big brand that wants to engage us for design/customisation work, please note that we do not work pro-bono. No creatives or artists should ever be insulted like this.
Do you have a store/studio we can visit?
Unfortunately no, we are focusing on e-commerce platforms and occasional pop-ups for now! We are also stocked at Therapy Market located at Great World City #01-22!
