The ultimate tool mat

We reconnected with Tom in Columbus - he had just returned from his first road show in Oshkosk - had sold just 600 units of the gen 1 Grypmat. 

Tom hired us as his product launch gurus and we dove into designing a Kickstarter - starting with prototyping the 3 new designs. We worked with one of our trusted mold makers to produce 3 impressive functional prototypes in the iconic orange. We used these models to produce content for the kickstarter. 

We directed and execution of the production of kickstarter video, voiceover, script and page design. Crafting the messaging behind the brand and campaign with - “Where do you set your tools?” 

In collaboration with Tom we refined the new design, design and produce the packaging cartons, the graphic inserts. In addition, we designed business cards, promo cards. We also  designed and sourced a tradeshow booth.


Less than a year from launching on Kickstarter Tom made an appearance on shark tank - made a deal with 3 sharks. Tom was also named - Forbes 30 under 30 for 2018 and the Grypmat was featured on Times Magazine front cover - as One of top 50 inventions of 2018. In addition, boast a Laundry list of product innovation awards that were won after our engagment. On an update in April 2018 on Shark Tank - Grypmat has reached over 4mil+ in sales and tens of thousands of units sold.
