Metro 1 Properties’ Commercial Sales Director, Tony Arellano, has just secured a 4,400 sf location for Friends With You in the Wynwood Arts District. The deal was signed for three years with an additional three year option. Since the initial collaboration of FWY in 2002, Miami based duo Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III have developed FWY into a fully established multi-disciplinary creative studio capable of producing everything from initial strategies and concepts, to products and packaging, POS, print elements, full motion media (i.e. live-action, animation, stop-motion, etc.), and events.
The Wynwood Arts District, a once desolate and obsolete light manufacturing corridor, is being transformed and adaptively repurposed to house an interesting district of art and developing creative shops, in addition to progressive restaurants and lounges. The Wynwood Arts District harbors a community of forward and innovative thinkers.
Solid disciplines of graphics combined with a dexterous mastery of numerous production methods from metal casting to print making amount to a varied and adventurous oeuvre. With an underlying philosophy of sharing, and amity FWY’s work, which ranges from entertainment, fine art and major cultural events, to playgrounds, toys, interactive products and apparel, offers a positive message of magic, luck, and friendship accessible to every demographic-essentially spreading a happy cultural virus to all facets of modern living.

As a one stop shop for clients and creatives alike, FWY consistently generates innovative, award-winning work. Recently FWY have been invited to participate in some of the World’s most respected art happenings including Art Basel, Comicon, and Pictoplasma, and have shown and/or have works included in the permanent collection at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, among others. FWY was created with one basic concept in mind; to become Friends With You!
