With Love: celebrating the people behind the UK’s creative industries

The With Love project started by Rob Evans and Chris Roberts aimed to seek out people who loved their work, asking them Why do you do what you do?. Pursuing passion and purpose within various creative industries, the duo interviewed a number of creators from those working in the fashion industries to furniture design, and everything in between.

The duo recorded their interviews, photographing the people they met along the way, such as their first visit to David Hieatt of Huit jeans. The project aims to inspire others to follow what they love and be part of the creative industries.

In order to open up their project further, the duo have set up a Kickstarter project to create a beautifully designed, limited edition, hardbound book, titled ‘The People Behind The Craft’. The book will feature 40 inspiring individuals and exciting makers across the UK, celebrating creative talent in Britain. More information about the project and each of the stories can be found on the With Love website.
