A COLLECTION

Inspired by the simple things in life, our online retail venture showcases a curation of everyday design and craft

BUILT & SUPPORTED BY PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

WILL-I-BE is an evolving and ever-changing platform for philosophy, art, culture and craftsmanship, represented by a series of print publications: magazines, books and monographs. Furthermore, it is enriched by a gallery concept, a work shop and a fast-moving online portal.

WHO WE ARE

WILL-I-BE was founded as an online platform and biannual publication to explore the aesthetic and cultural interests of its founders and highlight how design, art and craft can play a part in our modern world. Objects that aren’t brash or attention seeking, those that sit quietly, doing their job well and becoming seamlessly integrated in to our everyday environment.

WHAT ARE WE DOING

  • A magazine, books and monographs

    Will-I-Be publications are a selective journey through the universe of time capsules featuring an array of exceptional pictorial essays, unabridged interviews and editorials.

    Working with established and emerging photographers, stylists and writers, WIB Magazine places equal emphasis on accomplished journalism and beautiful imagery, and seeks to represent contemporary icons alongside future influencers.

  • Compile inspiring stories

    We travel the world discovering stories and extraordinary scenes, trying to inspire others as we have inspired us. Our role is to bring together right now and show the world and hear how these inspirational figures interpret the different aspects of life.

  • Recording music mixtapes

    Our collection of exclusive mixtapes of evocative music compiled by our team and friends.

  • Ploting New Projects

    Our dynamic and talented team offer specialised skills and expertise derived from a diversity of backgrounds in the fields of design, arts and publishing. But it doesn’t stop there. We compliment our qualifications with a wealth of experience working alongside clients to develop and produce distinctive outcomes in the real world. These specialised insights are the key to our growth, success and distinctive perspective.

    Each project we address consists of groups of people working on some idea or action. We add new projects here hoping to find people like you who wants to work in them.

  • A Makers Directory

    As well as stocking a variety of well-made contemporary objects that have clarity and integrity at their core, we also look to document these artisans and share their stories.

  • An online store with a careful selection of contempary design and crafts

Our Philosophy

“Each plank … can have only one ideal use. The woodworker must find this ideal use and create an object of utility to man, and if nature smiles, an object of lasting beauty”

– George Nakashima

Too many of us spend our day to day lives roaming around unappreciative of the small details in front of our eyes. How was that spoon made? Did a potter make these vessels by hand? The exceptional has almost become unexceptional thanks to our limited knowledge and lack of respect for the craftsmen and makers who sweat over the small, but important, details.

Our vision is to change the way we view these goods, at the same time working to support the craft and design community. Respecting those individuals that make objects by hand is of ultimate importance, their commitment to using quality materials, alongside their understanding of utility. All of these attributes lead to a timeless object that will become an important companion in our lives.

The current moment is one of unprecedented change, opportunity, and innovation across all industries. Emboldened by this landscape, The WIB Stories presents a wide-ranging exploration of the extraordinary — the people, places, and ideas that inspire, fascinate, and encourage us to push the boundaries of the possible. Our perspective is global, and our mandate inclusive. We work with the world’s most talented emerging artists to find the world’s most compelling stories in art, science, sport, cuisine and technology that daily propel the conversation forward.
