Happy Friday Kokonuzz friends!!!
Some quick (and exciting!) updates:
1. “Char Siu Bao” original Tees are Sold Out. Well, to be precise there is just 1 pc in S size and 1 pc in XL size left. Thanks a lot for the amazing support & if you love that design you can still get it custom printed on Organic cotton.
2. “Pay Octopus” original Tees are on their way to being Sold Out too, only L and XL left!
3. We are working hard to prepare for the HK International Licensing Show and feel very excited. Imagine… maybe in a few months, that little pig (KINO) that you saw start almost from scratch could be on its way to become the next Hello Kitty! Ok, I guess there is a long way till then, but if it ever happens, it will have been thanks to you and your support! We are all together in this and I cannot thank you enough!
4. Our small showcase at Inno Design Tech received amazing feedback, thanks HKTDC for the opportunity! Also this had led us to an interview for an article at HK Economic Journal, niceeeee!!!
5. We are trying to improve our website to make it easier for all visitors to Like and Share our content.
If you are still reading this means a) You have lots of time or b) You really care about us (YAY!!!). So if it is the second option, please take 15 secs to Click the icon next to the “Like” on our Facebook page and select “Share”, to tell your friends about us, it really does make a huge difference for us, since the most difficult part is reaching a wider audience.
Well, and that’s about it for the time being. Even if only one person ends up reading all this, it will have been worth it. I personally love what we are creating here and I want each and everyone of you to be part of it. We are 100% open to ideas and suggestions and our office doors are always open to friendly visitors hahaha
Have a great day, an awesome weekend and: Be Happy, Have Fun & Let’s go nuts!!!
Happy Friday Kokonuzz friends!!!
Wow what a busy month! If you are following us on Facebook or Twitter you will have seen that we have launched a few very exciting services lately.
First let’s talk about the Custom Design Service, which now we are offering for both Kids & Babies (KOKOBaby) and also for Pets (KOKOPets). I must admit that the idea for this service did not come from me, it all started a few months back when Ali Bullock asked me to make a custom cartoon of his dog Padstow in order for him to print it on a phone case for his wife. I surely did and the feedback was great but I thought it would be a one off thing. However, word spread about this option and it later included making cartoons of babies too so after a while it became very clear that there was a demand for this very personal design service.
So now it’s officially out there! In any case, due to the very time intensive nature of the job (every cartoon is created from scratch based on the pictures and personality description provided by the client) I need to limit the number of assignments I can take each month (lots of other things to do too!). But all in all it is great that now we can offer this tailor made service and create gifts that are unique and truly special. I love to see the excitement when people receive them!
Then we have also launched a customized printing service, check out: http://store.kokonuzz.com/ where people can choose any of our 100+ designs and we can digitally print on organic cotton onesies or organic t-shirts and we can even customize the text in order to make the final result more personal or a perfect and affordable gift solution. This option is having great success during our visits to Island East Markets. People love to browse through our designs and are very attracted to the customized option. And I must say the quality of the organic cotton t-shirt and onesie is amazing! The onesie in particular is fully made in Hong Kong and is crazy soft!
Ok, so apart from those new services we are working on a few mid term projects that we hope will bring our brand to the next level. The only one I can disclose a bit more about at this stage is the #bestonesieever project.
We have been working on this project for quite a while now and I must say the results so far are very very exciting and we are engaging a big amount of parents to help us create a great product. I encourage everybody to take a look at our dedicated blog for this project: The Best Onesie Ever Project by Kokonuzz
So that’s about it for today! Hope you enjoyed our update! Have a great week and never forget to: Be Happy, Have Fun & Let’s go nuts @Kokonuzz!!!
So… what have we been up to? Well, we have been getting ready for Island East Markets! Since our first stall date was cancelled due to Typhoon, this Sunday will be our first time there :-)
We have done all preparations, everything is packed and ready to go, now we only need to people to show up and hopefully join the fun and embrace Kokonuzz!!! :-) I don’t want to be too optimistic about the results but I am secretly hoping for an awesome response hahaha On our side we have put tonnes of love and energy on our attempt to bring the Kokonuzz philosophy to live! KINO cannot wait for Sunday to be here!
And besides this we have kept working on 2 main projects that we are developing to expand our brand to new products. These projects are moving more slowly than I would personally like but we want to make really good things, so I am hoping that the extra time will translate in extra awesome results!
I will write after the market experience and share the results… crossing my fingers as I write!!! :-)
See you soon and Be Happy, Have Fun & Let’s go Nuts!!!
Kokonuzz mentioned on WHERE magazine! So cool! Thanks again to the HK Magazine Media group!
And guess what… Next month we will appear also on MKT magazine! :-) YAY!
And orders are flying too! Yesterday we broke our own record for orders through RedBubble (www.kokonuzz.com/store/gonuts.php). Thanks so much for all your support!!!
Will do a summary of projects going on soon… so many things to mention!!! :-) Let’s go nuts!!!
So… it’s been a while without any post… Sorry about that, Blogging is not as easy as it looks! :-)
Well, the good news is that we have been incredibly busy, not only with orders from all over the world (yay!) but also working on new and exciting projects for the coming future!
As you might have seen already on our Facebook, we are starting to work on baby & child designs and clothing following the huge popular demand hahaha So that is something we have been working on and we think we found a great manufacturer for organic cotton onesies and t-shirts but we are still working out the details since trust me, it’s not cheap! :-P
On the other hand we are having some PR exposure lately which we are very happy and excited about! You might have seen us on HK Magazine and next month we will appear with an interview on WHERE magazine! The team at HK magazine media is really awesome, we cannot thank them enough! And I believe TimeOut HK might also mention us although I have not been able to confirm if we appear in this week’s edition because I went to buy it and the shop was still selling late July’s number… This is like buying yesterday’s newspaper! Anyway, if any of you sees any media coverage of our brand, please share!
What else… well, we are applying to join the HK Licensing Exhibition next January and hopefully we can meet some partners interested on using our very fun and successful characters for their products! KINO is sooo looking forward to that hahaha
Regarding our RedBubble sales (www.kokonuzz.com/store/gonuts.php) I must say it is doing very well! It is so cool to see people around the world liking our works and showing it by buying our designs! Every time we receive the “You made a Sale” email is such a happy moment! I mean, profit on RedBubble is low because we want to set reasonable prices, but at the end of the day is not that much about the profit but about sharing Kokonuzz experience with as many people as possible!
More things… next month we have a stand on Island East Markets!!! We are so happy and excited about this, and cannot wait to see how it turns out. It might be a logistic nightmare to organize (We want to bring the whole kokonuzz experience to the stall) but it will be fun!
And I think that is a good summary of what’s going on! Please keep supporting us and telling your friends about our brand and concept, you guys are really making us happen, thank you sooooo much!!!
Be happy, have a great day and Let’s go nuts!!!
YAY! It’s so exciting to see people around the world choosing our designs! RedBubble is proving to be a great tool to test the different designs and see what works best and which colors are most attractive! I must say the Daddy Series are a big hit! Check them all out here: www.kokonuzz.com/store/gonuts.php Let’s go nuts!!!
Today’s design is a homage to Breaking Bad, the show is back! KINO looks sooo scary as Heisenberg :-)
Today we have an interview to be featured in Where Magazine HK! YAY! Thanks a lot to all our friends at HK Magazine Media! You guys rock! More details to be posted soon. Let’s go nuts!!!
See you all this evening @ July’s Drink & Doodle event! https://www.facebook.com/events/643952815616647/ Let’s go nuts!!!
