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.
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.
Designers can apply for this seal via firstname.lastname@example.org. Once approved you can display our seal on third-party platforms, such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo.
