An ode to love and art.
Secrid collaborates with artist Franky Sticks on a Limited Edition Cardprotector. The synergy of two creative hearts blossoms into three original art prints by the artist, engraved on 100 Stonewashed Cardprotectors. With this collaboration, Franky Sticks emphasises the guiding power of love towards a better future – ‘Love That Will Never Die’.
Our shared love for art and creative exploration blossom into a collaboration championing Rotterdam’s creative landscape. While cherishing shared values, Secrid and Franky Sticks also acknowledge and value their individuality. This translates into a nuanced collaborative journey framed by art, focus on quality and punctuated by creative freedom, yet closely working together.
Spread the love.
Why are art and love so important to you?
Life is framed by art. Art allows us to communicate or even change things. There are many kinds of love: romantic love, self-love, love for family, and for the world. Love is the glue that holds us all together and gives value to life. It is a means to give back.
How did you experience working with Secrid?
One of the coolest aspects of the brief is the complete freedom I was given to design. I started this collaborative creative process with one of Secrid's core values – creativity as a force for good – that I connected with and built my own vision around it, resulting in 'Love That Will Not Die'.
What drives you to keep creating?
To leave something behind that did not exist before.
What do you love about collaborating?
Building meaningful relationships and mutually learning from each other. By joining forces and working synergically, you can achieve things you could never achieve alone.
Is there anything else you would like to pass on?
Spread the love.
LOVE FOR A BETTER WORLD
LOVE FOR EACH OTHER
LOVE FOR MYSTERY
LOVE FOR CREATIVITY
LOVE FOR YOURSELF
LOVE FOR FAMILY
LOVE FOR ART
YOU MAY BE DRAWN TO THIS LOVE OR THAT LOVE, BUT IN THE END, LOVE LEADS US BEYOND.

The First Secrid Brandstore
You'll find our first Secrid Brandstore at the Meent nr. 2. Since the start of Secrid, we have been dreaming of having our own Brandstore.
In 2009, three people started the Secrid adventure: Marianne, René and Paul. Thirteen years later, our creative family consists of more than 100 colleagues and we keep growing steadily.
How It All Started
Secrid is a family business and 100% owned by the Van Geer family. The company was founded by René van Geer and Marianne van Sasse van Ysselt.

I'm always with my head in the clouds andsuper chaotic, because of this I always lost my cards. The Cardprotector is the perfect gift to keep my cards safely together.
The Industrial Evolution
Instead of ‘cheaper and worse’, new products must be developed which are intrinsically ‘better, more sustainable and more valuable’ than products that came before.
Secrid is a Certified B Corp
