In April 2019, Sam & Matt officially launched madeby.studio during their final year studying Graphic Design at University of Leeds. After 3 years of hard work - much of which was during the pandemic, Sam and Co-Founder, Matt Wheeler, have since built our agency up into a hugely successful six-figure digital design and development studio.
With minimal funding, madeby.studio’s mission was solely financed through bootstrapping and growth grants from AD:VENTURE. After the second year of business, we saw +950% increase in profit and +293% in revenue. Offering innovative digital transformations from website development to brand strategy, we’re very pleased to have long-standing partnerships with some of the largest healthcare and construction companies in the UK.
Now consisting of a sizable team of creatives, web developers and digital designers operating in the heart of Leeds Dock, our studio is planning for a pivotal scale up. madeby.studio’s goal is to provide innovative digital solutions that empower people. Our aim is to refine our approach and focus on people-centric companies. With existing knowledge and clients in health, education and construction, we strive to revolutionise companies who aspire to create a real difference in the world.
