There are new products, good looking products, and well made products. We covet them as much as anyone. But at Human Crafted, we want to make better products. A better product is one that does just what it needs to. It solves that annoying little problem, makes your everyday life go a bit smoother, and makes you never want to turn back. Each product and package Human Crafted designs is produced in our Madison, Wisconsin based studio. Being hands-on gives us the freedom to experiment but also the desire to optimize every detail. We call this combination of pursuits — Made. Better.
In 2016 Jon Alling, an engineer and product designer, turned this side project into a full-time adventure. You can read more about this transition here. Human Crafted is a single member product design studio based in Madison, Wisconsin. When not creating the products you see on this site, we're helping other companies develop better products for their customers. You can read more about how the Made. Better. philosophy carries over to that work here.
