City Standard

Who we are

City Standard was created by a structured mess of local people who believe in the importance of stories.

Publisher Joshua Fanning, writer + editor Farrin Foster, and artist + art director Tyrone Ormsby have all worked in creative industries for more than a decade. In that time they’ve seen good stories increasingly sacrificed as funding models demand more be done with less.

Together, they developed City Standard as a new way to bring together communities and their storytellers.

We’re the founders. But City Standard is made by us all.
