Why we founded the world's first Consumer Product Design platform

What started as a small marketing strategy by designers to support aspiring students and showcase their products, has now grown to a global platform for everyone who is passionate for innovative consumer products.

DesignNest is now the largest growing community of young and ambitious product designers worldwide. By sharing ideas, knowledge and network, designers learn from us and each other to build better and more affordable products together.

For buyers we provide a one-stop award-winning consumer product portfolio; from heating mugs, levitating lights to foldable electric bikes. Our goal is to redefine daily living through innovating existing products. And perhaps more importantly, all our featured products have guaranteed delivery.

Whether as a creator or just simply someone who wants the latest consumer products, our platform has it all for free. Join us now!

Our goal is to become the world’s first open-platform and market place for product designers. As designers ourselves we want to support and build a community with the most passionate designers in the world.

By co-branding we mutually generate exposure for both the external designer as well as our in-house designed products.
We earn profit margins when we sell the designer’s products to our B2B clients (designer receives commission)
The more we manufacture and source, the more efficient and experienced we become
As a community of designers with one large collective portfolio we can provide better protection against copycats. We stand stronger as a community than single product startups by individuals. You may able copy one or two of our products, but no one will be able to copy our culture.
Most importantly is creating the DesignNest brand by becoming the most valuable and leading platform for consumer product design

Most crowdfunding platforms only require that designers to deliver on their promises. That means they face no consequences if the project misses its delivery date — or even fails entirely.

The DesignNest Guarantee Seal is meant to put the backer’s mind at ease. When you order a product with this seal on other crowdfunding platforms we guarantee the delivery of the product after the project is funded, or you will get your money back.
