Judi Powers is our latest Jewelry Design Challenge winner with her stunning "A Tree Grows" necklace.
Since I dislike the feel and overall experience of plasticware, and I often find myself in situations where plastic is the only option, I predict that always having stainless steel flatware on hand will improve the way I enjoy meals every single day. I predict that I will be much happier always having the Pocket Utensil Set available to me.
Happy New Year! We're excited to see what 2013 will bring, and we have big plans for the next 12 months. We're planning more sneak peeks Inside the Artist's Studio, interviews with designers from across the country, behind the scenes looks at what goes on here at UncommonGoods, great gift ideas, and of course, brand new design challenges! But, before we announce our first challenge of the year, we're taking a look back on the great designs that came to us through our 2012 design challenges and the people who created them.
Customer feedback has always been important to us when it comes to making design decisions, improving our products, and providing a great customer experience. Over a year ago, we launched our community voting app to make it even easier for our community to share their questions, comments and suggestions with us. In that time, we've added some great products to our assortment. So, we decided to say thanks for helping us pick winning goods with the chance to win some!
A great portfolio is a must-have in the visual world of design, but what's the best way to build an eye-catching image collection? Ceramicist Tasha McKelvey captured our judges' attention and won our first Ceramics Design Challenge with her uncommon piece. Here's her advice on creating content to get the attention of art show judges, buyers like ours, and others in the art world.
Since we launched our community voting app we've heard some great feedback from voters like you. Some exciting new designs have entered our assortment with the help of all of those thumbs up, so we're thanking our community with the chance to the latest batch of up-for-voting goods.
