It's Daz again. Well a lot has happened since we last made a blog post. We wanted to update you on a few things:
As we mentioned in our last blog post, we want to make sure we make high quality products that are accessible to the broader art community. That's why we've been hard at work developing a streamlined, high quality, high function bag for artists that we hope will be priced to reach as many people as possible.
The bag will launch on our website on December 21 and pre-order pricing will be A$156 (~US$119). We can't release a bunch of other details just yet but see below some initial photos of our latest prototype in action. Jump on our Mailing List to be kept up to date :)
We'll be releasing more details ahead of our planned launch on December 21!
We were racking our brains trying to think of a new name for our next product then we thought why not ask you guys :)
If you'd like to suggest a name or get involved then visit our Facebook post and get naming - it's super simple!
At COB Friday, 5 December 2017 we'll take the 5 most 'liked' suggestions and then we'll put it to a vote.
Make sure your friends 'like' your suggestion and your name could be immortalized in the hallowed halls of Etchr! Oh and one other thing...the person who suggested the name that we end up using will receive the first ever production version free of charge of course :)
We're running our Christmas giveaway right now to spread some Christmas cheer. It's super simple to enter and you could win 1 of 3 Etchr Art Satchels!
You can enter via this post on Facebook.
We'll announce the lucky winners on 24 December :)
We want to stay ahead of the curve and ensure we're meeting the diverse and evolving needs of artists and art hobbyists everywhere.
With that in mind, we'll be drawing on the experience of a handful of esteemed professional artists who we've labelled our 'Pro Ambassadors' (we couldn't think of a better name), as well as our Student Ambassadors who represent us at art schools around the world.
We're proud and super excited to work closely with our Ambassadors to leverage their insights in our product design. You can meet our Student Ambassadors already and we'll be announcing our Pro Ambassadors very soon so stay posted.
What we can say about our Pro Ambassadors is that they represent the pinnacle of talent in the Comic, Concept Art, Illustration and Animation industries :)
Well that's about it. We'll be releasing more details about our new product, its name and our Pro Ambassadors real soon. Make sure you're on our Mailing List to be kept in the loop!
I'm really looking forward to what name is finally chosen - my suggested BaggyMcBagFace was contentious :)
Take care of yourselves and each other and keep creating <3
