behind the scenes

...is a team of art lovers, designers and artists. Captain Crate himself was brought to life by our designer Manuel from Hamburg, who designs everything to do with Upcrate with his creative ideas and flair for design. Clemens is the founder of Upcrate and brings the magic and organization into the box through his connections to many global art material manufacturers. A selected team of artists tests and curates the materials for Upcrate to ensure that the materials match so you can let your creativity flow freely!
