About Us

Christopher Sims initially formed 55factory due to his irritation with the lack of open and accessible collaboration in creative media and to experiment with the trans media format. 55factory's name comes from the location. A sub-terranial studio, 2 storeys below ground with no natural light, much like a bunker. Placing the name as 55factory avoided the project becoming attached to ego or sentiment,

55tv began as an interview station designed for quick tv bites and conversation pieces dealing with the creative world, fashion, arts, celebrity, music. They were designed to be short easy to digest, informative and quick viewing via smart phones, iPads and computers.

Co founder Sara Darling suggested the publication of a magazine after the development of 55tv. '55pages' became its name and was to be the creative vessel ensuring collaboration across the contemporary art, fashion and culture, with a serious agenda towards its content of political views in line with the society we live in.

Joe Barbour, during the initial expansion of 55factory and its progression into the 'trans media' realm, became digital developer exploring 55factory products and their accessibility via Internet, website, app and social media.

Over the development of 55factory, the collaboration has encountered hundreds of creatives in its union. Producing work via the 55factory platforms as a collaboration is the key purpose of 55factory.

Still being an extremely small core team, 55factory manages to collaborate with some of the most exciting, talented and prolific creatives of our day.
