Friday Forum – Franklyn
Michael Freimuth - Founder & CD at Franklyn
#CircusForum The Creative Circus hosts special guests every Friday as part of our Friday Forum Series.
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Michael Freimuth is currently raising his almost-5-year-old child, Franklyn – a brand-focused studio located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – alongside his partner, Patrick Richardson.
He’s lucky enough to be surrounded by a superbly talented group of designers, illustrators and smarties who make up the rest of the Franklyn family. They like to keep it buttoned up when they must, and weird whenever possible.
Michael is an award-winning creative director whose work has been recognized by almost too many industry organizations to count. Waaaaaay back in 2008, Michael received the New Visual Artist Award from Print Magazine, a recognition given to the top 20 designers under 30. In 2010, he was selected from an international group of creatives to be one of 50 Art Directors Club Young Guns. Prior to founding Franklyn in 2012, he partied with Stefan Sagmeister in his New York studio.
Outside of his work at Franklyn, Michael is the creative director at large for Marz Brewing, an award-winning and fantastically ridiculous brewery located in Chicago’s Community of the Future, Bridgeport.
These events are open to the public (mandatory for students, of course) so if you’re in the neighborhood, come by and enjoy what Michael Freimuth has to say!
