Newport Works - The Studio Bag & Folio Combo

£24,684

257

We are launching the Studio Bag and the Folio for creatives to carry and showcase their work. The Studio Bag and Folio can be used separately or together as the perfect presentation combo.

Stop wasting money on cheap portfolios that fail. The Studio Bag and Folio Combo offers incredible long-term value at half the price.

The Studio Bag is for large format studio essentials. Paper pads, cutting mats, big drawings and your laptop. Carry it all.

Each Studio Bag comes with tote bag style shoulder straps and a secondary grab handle for support. Never experience discomfort carrying your work again. (Pictured: Studio Bag Large)

Folios have compartments for 50 sheets of paper, secondary pockets for journals and even a nifty little slot to keep your business cards.

We will ship to you from our UK distribution centre using our globally renowned shipping partner. All shipping will be charged after the campaign in the post-campaign survey.

Shipping rates to the UK, US and all EU countries include all import duty and taxes - no extra charges.

Shipments to all other countries may incur import duty or tax payable on arrival.

Newport Works is a London based design studio. Our mission is to raise the bar across the entire portfolio market. 

Song Eng trained as an architect at the University of Cambridge and London Metropolitan University. Throughout design school, he noticed a consistent lack of quality in the portfolios available. Song founded Newport Works to design modern and durable solutions for creatives to carry and present their work.

Adam Atkinson has 25 years of creative experience helping global brands like Nike and Puma and startups like Millican and Langly turn great ideas into winning product. His experience covers the entire product creation process - design, product development, sourcing and production – and extends into brand marketing and project management.

Each Studio Bag and Folio will be made to order by our global manufacturing partner once the campaign ends. We have set a realistic timeline but will endeavour to deliver early, if possible.

Why We Need Kickstarter And You

We have spent the last year designing, testing and sampling the Studio Bag and Folio. It’s been a wonderful journey, and now we’re ready to push the button and manufacture on a large scale. Only with the help of Kickstarter, and most importantly, our backers, will we finally be able to say goodbye to boring portfolios.

If you have friends, family, colleagues or random strangers who may be interested in our project, please help us spread the word!

Risks and challenges

The Newport Works team and our supply chain partners have worked with premium, globally recognised brands over many decades. We have a robust project plan to ensure supply chain risks are minimised.

All aspects of our designs have been thoroughly considered at each stage of the product creation process; from concept design, materials and technical drawings to the numerous sampling rounds and finished product testing, we’ve checked it all in-house and run it past numerous industry contacts, honing and refining continually. We are drawing on all our collective experience to ensure Newport Works products are industry-leading.
