Three years ago, Darren Yeow, a successful, self-taught Concept Artist created The Nomad Art Satchel: a product we didn’t know we wanted, yet it changed the lives of artists around the globe. The bag’s unique tool storage system and thoughtful design made it possible to sketch anywhere. It’s simply the best art bag in the world.
Now, the Kickstarter for The Nomad’s successor, The Etchr Art Satchel, made over $200,000 within the first 24 hours of launch…
…and we’ve been recording the whole story, since the very beginning…
In part two, we checked in with Darren as he was choosing business partners who could help turn his one-man passion project into an international enterprise.
Now, in our last installment, we meet Darren’s business partner Simon Frisby, and they share how they’ve built a business with “changing the world” as a founding concept…
Join us today as we discuss:
- Why Darren wasn’t satisfied with the Nomad’s big success – and how he made it bigger…
- How to build collaborations that actually work.
- The surprising truth behind llama awesomeness.
- Marketing strategies for artists – that aren’t just numbers and research.
- Choosing the perfect name for your project.
- Creating genuine human connections through… memes?
