About

What is a SLIMJIG™?

The SLIMJIG™ is a clever stand for virtually all your handheld devices. It is high on portability and compliments your handheld devices perfectly.  It is small enough to hold your phone AND strong enough to hold your iPad, without falling over.

There are dozens if not hundreds of beautifully designed stands out on the market at the moment, but none that are as small, portable and as strong as the SLIMJIG™, which can fit in your pocket, purse or wallet.  Wherever your device goes, along comes the SLIMJIG™!

The Design

As a culture we are obsessed with objects, great looking objects to be specific. Many times designers get caught up with making something look great while negating its functionality.  White designing the SLIMJIG™ we kept both aspects in mind; great design, along with great functionality.

The SLIMJIG™ consists of two interlocking aluminum pieces that are the exact same size of your typical credit/debit card

The Colors

The SLIMJIG™ is a tool, however, it is also an accessory.  We are proud of our design and can't wait to share it with you.  Be proud of your SLIMJIG™!  Show off your colors!

Be vibrant.  Be bold.  Be subtle.  Be you.

Logistics

All parts of the design and manufacturing process have been carefully considered and priced out.  We've had multiple process and logistics meetings, with our material providers, fabricators and powder coating specialists.  All digital files required to begin the process for producing the SLIMJIG™ have been finalized and are ready to be sent over to the respective parties upon successful funding of this project for an expedited production.

A Product of our Environment

We believe we are a direct product of our environment.  The city of Los Angeles has carefully molded our minds, thoughts, theories, creativity and abilities into what they are today.  It is only right that we give back to the city that created us. 

All things SLIMJIG™ are a direct product of Los Angeles:  materials, design, fabrication and quality checks are all sourced and completed in/from Los Angeles, CA.

Staying close to home will not only allow us to work closely together with local businesses, material specialists and fabricators but more importantly it will allow us to carefully control the quality of our final product.

Why we need your help.

As with any new product, creating a one-off prototype is quite costly.  After a prototype is completed, the more of that product you produce, the more feasible costs get.  We also do not believe in excess, we do not believe in creating something that will simply not be accepted by you.  If you don't like the product, design or idea it will simply not get funded.  No hard feelings :)

Blog About Us!!

The more people know about this project, the more likely it is to get funded.  Put us on your blog, shoot us an email with a link and we will give you a shout-out here on this page. If the project gets funded, we will send you your very own SLIMJIG™ as a thank you.

Risks and challenges

As with any new product, there may be challenges throughout the course of production. And as the saying goes: "If something can go wrong, it will."

Luckily, everything has already been taken care of. Design, prototyping and testing have all happened. Our close proximity to all parties involved in the manufacturing of the SLIMJIG™ allows us to quickly rectify any issues/obstacles we may encounter along the way.
