For the last few month, aalex and i have been working
really hard on a new project: DesignMarketo.
The core idea is to provide designer with a tool
that lets them expend their audience and public
exposure and sells their nice projects. DesignMarketo
offers a selection of the last nice things we came
across, mostly, at our friends studio. We went trough
all the low and highs working on such projects
can provide (think: credit crunch in sept 08);
but seen from here and now, it has been
mostly a lot of fun and discoveries.
Meeting people and discussing about their works
and how to provide them with some solutions
really did carry our minds away. I really enjoyed
developing the project basics, its structure,
talking business plan, business model, how to make
this adventure a profitable venture...
Of course when Credit Crunch badly hit the UK
in septembre 08 we had our pack of doubts,
but we finally realised that it was on the contrary
a great occasion to make things differently
and to open up new area for designers to explore
in the self production area - we will be there
to assist them and help them diffuse
and sell their clothes, furniture, books, prints...
We sincerely hope you will enjoy the project :)
