How did you decide to establish Designed by Man? What inspired you?

Dean came one night to me with this idea. I thought it was very cool, so we took a beer from the fridge and started designing. After the design was ready we produced the first prototype. We pitched it on social media and did not know what happened. So many likes and reactions people wanted to order our product. It was amazing.

Could you tell us about Designed by Man and your team?

At Designed by Man we have 2 directors myself and Dean. We have 3 factory workers: Ryan, Leanne, and Stefano. At the office, we have one sales guy his name is Alexander. And together we are Designed by Man
