Portland, Oregon

OMFGCO, or The Official Manufacturing Company, is a multi-disciplinary design studio located in Portland, Oregon. The collective is made up of two Pacific Northwesterners and a Texan: Mathew Foster, Fritz Mesenbrink, and Jeremy Pelley. In years past the three worked separately for “Wieden+Kennedy, Ace Hotel and a handful of other fantastic places” so they “now know exactly what [they’re] doing.”

The Official Manufacturing Company wasn’t always official. Foster, Mesenbrink, and Pelley started out working on freelance projects together. As time passed they came to share a studio space. That went so well that the next step, forming an official business, was a natural progression. After deciding on their name, The Official Manufacturing Company, the trio ran into a problem securing a url. For starters, officialmanufacturingcompany.com is a really long url. The team slowly chopped the url down until they were left with OMFGCO.com. They swear this was a happy accident; one they have admittedly embraced.

The OMFGCO team has gone on to work for some top tier clients, including Gap, Google, the Portland Timbers, and Olympic Provisions, among others. As a multi-disciplinary studio the OMFGCO team can handle pretty much anything that comes their way. OMFGCO is particularly adept at creating brands, identities, signage, and printed collateral. The trio have expressed a similarity in their styles and taste. This manifests itself in a cohesive body of work that demonstrates how modern design can draw reference from the entire history of design, and make every nod to the past relevant to today’s viewer.
