Who are we?

We are a group of artists, mathematicians, musicians, programmers, writers and scientists. We are a group of 16 dedicated and determined individuals, based in Barnes, London, with a wide-ranging set of talents, coming together to form Team Logyc. What we all have in common is that we are all under the age of 18, and we love design and innovation.

The Story

Having gone to school together for years we decided that we could put into practice all we have learnt and make a fun, affordable product. We took all the features we wanted in a headphone winder and worked on creating what we thought would be the perfect cheap winder. However, at the moment we only have prototypes - the money we're asking for will be put towards getting the moulds and first orders made.

Pure Convenience

We got annoyed with constantly having to deal with the tangled mess that our headphones always seemed to make and the waste of time this caused! With this in mind we sat down at the drawing board to try and make everyone's life a little easier. Each person we have shown a prototype to has said that they would never go back to leaving their headphones in their pocket again and you won't either ...we promise. We wanted a winder that: kept our pockets tidy, was low profile, stylish, affordable and durable.

The Design

The Twyst winder went through many prototypes before we arrived at the final design, one which we feel perfectly fulfills our desire to create the ideal winder. We were tired of looking around everywhere and seeing 'winders' that you just wrapped your wires around and did very little about the mess. We wanted to create something that not only kept our headphones untangled but also hid the wires from sight. In this way we feel that our product is unique. We wanted something that you would be proud to show off to your friends. This was the birth of the Twyst winder. Although we will be offering a range of colours to the general public we want our Kickstarter supporters to have a truly unique product so we are giving you the opportunity to have your own personalized winder.

How it works

The way it works is simple. Just put the middle of the wire in the winder, close, and Twyst!

A cheap stylish product to hold your headphones and stop them tangling.

Terms & Conditions

For personalized orders, please send your images to be printed onto the product to:

     orders@twystwinder.com

Please keep these images monochromatic and simple. If there's a problem with size or file type will we contact you and together we will work it out!

Risks and challenges

The product design is finished and we have multiple 3D printed prototypes. We have a quote from a mould manufacturer in China and this money will go towards ordering the first batch of winders. There may be a time delay with ordering. We may run into issues with personalisation, so we're offering this feature to you personally - on the small scale... This feature won't be available to the individual after this Kickstarter!

If the Kickstarter is very successful, we may not be able to stick to our estimated delivery dates.
