In Sweden Allemansrätten ("the everyman's right") is a law which grants everyone access to nature or 'right to roam'. Allemansrätten allow a person access to essentially any land within the country, this includes the right to pick wild flowers, mushrooms and berries. When visiting a location, you have permission to set up a small camp fire and pitch a tent for a night or to (with few restrictions).
In practise allemansrätten places responsibility on people to look after nature and ensure minimal disturbance.
Areas that are improperly fenced or obstructs people access to areas that are considered part of the allemansrätt can be removed. This law is considered by many people in Sweden as a basic human right.
Nature is extremely important to the lives of people. But of course so are a number of many other things. Design can also be considered a vital part of life. Things that are conceived and created to make our lives simpler, more attractive and more easily understood. Its general purpose is to lead to a general better quality of life, in many ways like nature.
At Frontier Design we provide design that is available to all. There should be no fences, no obstructions. Access to everyone.
At Frontier Design we provide design that is available to all. There should be no fences, no obstructions. Access to everyone. That is our aim. We wish to create our own allemansrätt, the right to good design. It's not enough to make products for a select few, it should be democratic and inclusive and appropriately priced.
But why not make your files free then?
Of course, this could be considered a form of barrier preventing access to our land of designs. However the cost is minimal and we feel outweighs what you receive (we hope!). When you pay for a file, it's not only for the access to a product, it's a thumbs up to the work we have done and continue to do. We ask you to enjoy our products (with minimal restriction), look after them with as you would nature, without disturbance and enjoy them to yourself!
Please, join us on our land. Build a campfire pitch a tent and pick some flowers. Let's enjoy nature maybe a couple of beers...and good design!
