How can we empower local product designers to start selling online?

Eclipse by Tilen Sepič / Tilen Sepič

Tilen Sepič is a very talented product designer. He made a beautiful lamp that now sells in shops across Europe. The problem is that he has to do material sourcing, production, order fulfillment and marketing all by himself. He has his own webpage and would like to sell his products there. This problem is common to a whole new generation of great designers. What can we do about it? What are the solutions? First, the use of existing e-commerce platforms doesn't suit all his needs. Second, without the high volume traffic, product landing pages slowly fade into forgotten realms of the internet. This made us look for a sustainable solution that would give his and many other businesses the flexibility they need.

We started building a tool Fatsell, a tool for collecting pre-orders and selling online. It integrates a seamless checkout experience with supreme order management. During the process we learned that if the checkout can be embedded in every website, various blogs or other affiliates could sell directly from their page.

So, together with Sepič, we wrote down communication strategy for his lamp, created a custom landing page, embedded Fatsell and created social media campaign that made him noticable. Our goal is that everyone will be able to use these great tools. More info about Fatsell here.

We’ve worked with Gramatik on his latest album release

Next project > Gramatik

Gramatik is a producer/DJ, based in Brooklyn. He has always subscribed to the notion that music should be easily available to all. For this reason, his complete discography, along with his newest album Epigram, is available for free on his website. The challenge then was how to encourage people to support artists while downloading and sharing their music. In collaboration with [Multipraktik Collective]( & [Jono Brandel]( we set up a new brand communication platform. We built a website were anyone can listen to all of his tracks, all the while, streamlining the support points for the artist, which included merchandising and donations. The main body and highlight of the project was the interactive-game like application that generates custom artwork, which eventually became the newest vinyl and digital release cover. In the first week alone, over 9000 epigrams were created on Gramatik's new website.
