We are looking for product designers that can create useful and beautiful products.
At Angled we work with designers all over the world. Angled allows them to put their ideas into peoples hands for free. And we are always looking for more.
Industrial designers are a select group. Engineers with an eye for art. Problem solvers that have to think about a customer as well as the manufacturing.
Angled is constantly looking for new products. But all too often there problems with submission that prevent them from thriving on the platform. Often it has to do with manufacturability or the value of the product in general. Since industrial designers sit at the intersection of all parts of a product they are ideal for creating new products.
Industrial designers also often suffer from a lack of outlets for their ideas. Portfolios overflow with sketches and renders, and unfortunately many of them will never be made.
Angled was created to drop the barriers to zero of manufacturing a new product. Now any product can be made if it solves a problem or creates something that no one has ever seen. Those portfolios can now become actual products and prove themselves in the world.
How Does it Work
You submit a design. It must be 3D Printable and either solve a problem or be something that is fresh and new. You keep ownership of the design, you simply license it to Angled.io. If the product is approved then it will be added to the Angled.io site. And since we want every designer to be successful we will help with promotion and advertising (though make sure that you take responsibility for your success as well by sharing and promoting your product.)
Designers on Angled receive a royalty from every sale of their products. Often these royalties are greater than standard licensing royalties if a company were to take on your invention. We have designers on the platform that have begun to make it their full time career.
There is no cost to submit. We want to partner with designers and give them outlet for their products. Thousands of brilliant ideas are lost each year due to the cost of manufacturing. We have made that cost zero.
What is a Good Product?
If we knew that precisely we would be on our private islands. The beauty of Angled is that is allows ideas for physical products to be tried and iterated on for free. But there are some basic principles and genres of products that we look for.
Currently on Angled products that we are looking for are in the following categories
Industrial designers make their living running through endless new products. Angled gives them an outlet for all the ideas on the sketch pad. It is free to get started and allows designers of mechanical things to do what the programmers have been doing for years. Create something over the weekend that could make them a millionaire.
We can't wait to see what you will create.
