Hell For Leather quote

“In addition, some new research from Belgium has shown that if 10 per cent of car users took to two wheels, overall journey times for all road users would be down by 40 per cent and overall economy and emissions would be significantly improved too. Everyone benefits from an increase in motorcycle usage, even those in cars, a message which could not be more positive.”

Made By Elephant

Made by Elephant LogoThere’s something about Belgian designers and ‘Made by’ websites. I’ve already featured Made by Thomas here and today I’m using Tim Van Damme’s Made by Elephant as an excuse to link to Tim’s blog, maxvoltar.com. Made by Elephant was Tim’s free-lance design shop in Belgium. Tim no longer accepts new projects because he now works for Instagram in Austin, Texas. He’s a great (interface) designer and very well respected among the people who ‘make the internet’. Check out his blog and/or follow him on Twitter.

Made By Thomas

A year ago, I decided to change my domain name. I’ve had a few over the years and while all of them served their purpose just fine, I like change and I wanted something that would be more versatile. After thinking about it for a while, I decided on “Made by Fred”. It just sounded right and it worked as a moniker for the different purposes my online hub serves.

Since then, I’ve come across more “Made by” websites. As it happens, most of them are pretty cool. I’m proud to be in such good company. The track record for ‘series’ here on Made by Fred isn’t all that great, but that’s not going to stop me from starting another one. For this series, I’m going to feature some of my fellow “Made by” websites and projects.

Logo for Made By ThomasTo kick of the series, let’s have a look at Made By Thomas. Thomas Bossée is a fellow Belgian, and his “Made by” website was one of the first I stumbled upon after registering madebyfred.com. As a freelance designer, Thomas specializes in logo design and brand identity. I love his clean style and his use of typography is inspiring. Apparently, he’s also the Art Director for Bits of Love (website in Dutch), a digital design studio based in the beautiful city of Bruges.

As this first installment and the rest of the series will show, I’m in good company with these “Made by” websites and projects. All the more reason to improve Made by Fred now that the yearly clean up and redesign is getting close.
