It all started on a beautiful day over a cup of coffee in an inspirational backyard in Marietta and an eclectic terrace in Pune.
Two siblings residing in two different continents, chitchat over Skype. Random. Inconsequential. Yet, totally satisfying as they discussed their favorite subject - art and design. Suddenly, as if they were hit with a flash of brilliance - they sounded excited - “Yes let’s do this!” And the concept for a design portal was initiated.
They brainstormed for their idea. From yourdesignstore to Spanish inspired tudesignstore, the universal appeal is clear.
Here’s how the brainstorming went.
The need for good design is something that everyone seeks. And there are so many skilled and sophisticated content creators. Even in a design-conservative country like India the norm has been disrupted. But how does one go from adhoc self-designing to connecting with professional designers? Complicated searches can discourage a lot of people from pursuing their dream home or quality content and brand designing. And how do designers connect with these people? There is no dearth in creative pool and work. Why not create some platform where we connect the dots for them? Yay!
The result- 12 months of moving tokens across the board and several dice throws.
The sisters sitting across geographies started packaging innovative, hard-to-find, and creative people under the “tuDESIGNstore” name.
Yes that is us!
Our team expanded and together we began building what has now become a talent community that delivers value. And that’s important, because “Value” is a concept we take very seriously. And by ‘Value,’ we mean great everyday prices on all of our great services with a quality that would satisfy both customers and content developers. How do we do it?
It’s not complicated. We just focus on what matters — great designs + great prices = Value.
And this value of giving great work the exposure it deserves is reflected also in our mission and vision statements.
To empower artists of every discipline.
To create an online graphic design marketplace with the singular purpose of empowering the artists to share their work with online buyers.
Ready, Set, Design!
