The goal of this one-semester External Partnership class is to design a new collection of objects and accessories in partnership with Kikkerland for an exclusive retail launch with Paper Source. Successful designs will be manufactured by Kikkerland and sold at Paper Source stores across the world and through their e-commerce sites. Students will receive royalties (that’s $$$) on all sales of their designs that are manufactured and make it to market.
This class will collaborate closely with the design and retail team at Kikkerland. Students will be responsible for developing original design concepts appropriate to the collaboration and the marketplace. Student will make design presentations to key stakeholders at each point in the design process and produce drawings, 3D models, renderings and prototypes. Successful projects will be those that extend the offerings of Paper Source while capturing the unique spirit of Kikkerland.
