GRIT BY DESIGN™️ was born one night in Miami when Anthony Bold and Eddy Bogaert met through a mutual friend at a Miami Heat game. Being creators with complementary skill sets, they formed a relationship to create a vibrant experience for Art Basel 2021. On a cocktail napkin, they mapped out values they share, and what an experience showcasing those values would resemble, giving birth to GRIT BY DESIGN™️.
