We connect designers and manufacturers by representing designers and their work to companies. We also market designers in our channels in order to make them more visible to manufacturers and brands.— Elisa Luoto & Heidi Maria Huovinen, Co-founders & Designers
Do you actively market and sell your design work to manufacturers and brands? Do they know that you exist? Before cooperation between You and a manufacturer, companies need to know who you are and what you can offer for them. A key to successfully forwarding your design career is long-term commitment in representing yourself and your design work through marketing and sales work.
One product idea can be enough to push your career forward!
