The Design Concept: KUMA Compact Pencil Case
The Design Concept: KUMA Compact Pencil Case - Behind the scenes
Following on from our previous blog post (can be read here if you've missed it). After conducting the survey and being so overwhelmed with all you guys responses on what you would like in your ideal pencil case, we then started drafting up ideas!
We knew we had to incorporate compartments within the design and our main thing we really wanted to add, was a unique space saving concept for all your pens but easy to view and put away as this was something we've never seen in any pencil cases that we had come by.
Problems we encountered along the way...
- Manufacturers. By this point, we had somewhat an idea of what we would like as the main USP for our pencil case. It took us a few enquiries until we found the perfect manufacturer which understood the whole concept! (Helen, if your reading this; your a star!) ⭐
- Communicating the design concept. I'm sure many of you would relate that when you have a design in your head, the most difficult part is putting it in words!
- Specifics. Material. Packaging. Colors. Size. Durability. Timing. Costs. Shipping....the nitty-gritty that every small business owner has to deal with!
The fold-out pen organizer...
As mentioned above, we went ahead with our idea of a pen organizer compartment that can folded out and easily be seen and then folded back into the pencil case without it being too bulky and yet still room for everything else!
We were 100% driven by this unique concept that it took us a good few failed attempts until we hit 'the one'!
So the fold-out pen organizer became a solid part of the whole design concept and it answered all your problems with an organizer space and easy access 🥰 With regards to the colors, we went with pastels minimalist. 💗
