  1. Hey everyone! I posted the product in the prototypes section as well but wanted to see if I could get some discussion going here as well. Does anyone have any experience in the Urban Vinyl world and where might you suggest promoting a new product? I have a Kickstarting running and looking for advice to promote it. I have several online ads but they aren't getting the results I was hoping for. Any help & advice would be fantastic. http://rivalvinyl.com Thanks!

  3. Hey everyone! My name is James and I'm brand new to the site and excited I found it. I'm working towards becoming a product designer myself. More specifically an urban vinyl toy designer. It has always been a dream of mine and my business partner Chase to design and produce our own toys and board games. We both have many years experience in the graphic design, animation & film world but toys and board games is where are passions are leading us. We are in the middle of prototyping our first set of toys called RIVALS. It has been a challenging process and we have learned quite a bit. I have attached a photo of the first stage of prototyping for you to check out. We would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. We are currently waiting for the painted prototypes and can't wait to show them off. I am also writing because we need support. It can be difficult for an independent toy designer to get in the game. It would be so awesome if this great community of product designers could back us up. There are several ways you can help us get RIVALS into production. You can support directly through our recently launched Kickstarter. You can join our Facebook page. Feel free to share the links with your friends and perhaps write up a little blog post about it. Also, if you have any ideas or suggestions to help us promote we would be glad to hear them. You all are the professionals and we can't thank you enough for any support we get through this great community. http://rivalvinyl.com http://www.facebook.com/rivalvinyl Huzzah!

    Books On Time Management For Designers?

    Making Ideas Happen - Scott Belsky Scott Belsky is the founder of http://behance.net My absolutely favorite book for organization and time management. This book really helped me out. It is geared towards creatives so it should be just what you want. I could talk all day about this book but I'll let you read it first. Let me know if read it and what you think. Hope this helps!
