Hi everyone.

I'm brand new to this forum. I accidentally came across it the other day and I'm glad a place like this exists. What a great way to share ideas and inspirations.

My name is Mike and I recently designed an organizer for GoPros and accessories. I just got tired of carrying all the pieces in a ziplock and digging through it when I needed something. Not to mention scratching lenses and loosing pieces.

I originally designed this roll up case for myself, but had people asking me where they could get one. So, I refined it and put a lot of thought and time into the design. I wanted to make sure it was well rounded for most GoPro users and met high standards of quality and functionality.

I have a Kickstarter campaign going to help make it a reality. All the details and a video are at the link below.
Let me know what you guys think!

This is an exciting time to be a product designer. Looks like you are well on your way to being funded.
Pros- the basic idea is awesome and solves a problem. Clean uncluttered design
Could be improved: The unrolled state could stand to look neater (more planar?) Also it could stand to have a little identity of its own. What if there was a logo embroidered on the endcaps - that would be visible in the end on view of the rolled up state (visible in the last image posted )?

Thanks for your feedback Parel.
Could you go a bit further into what you mean by neater when unrolled? It does hold a lot of parts in a tight space so maybe it looks a bit cramped to you?
Regarding branding, I will definitely be adding a logo to it. Probably somewhere on the inside of the case to keep it clean and brand free on the outside. I like your idea of a logo on the endcaps though; I'll definitely consider that.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment Parel.

Michael,
Congratulations on your success over at Kickstarter. Big congrats at getting picked up by the good folks at Core77, that's awesome. Great story, too.

Best of luck and stay safe,
