Risks and challenges

Since I started the QURKIES project about a year ago, I overcame so many challeges. Not the least; filing my own patent. It was almost funny how much effort the patent organisation puts into making things as difficult as possible. Dispite all my frustration, I completed the task.

Being a graduated and proffesional product designer, I am very much in my comfort zone during the development of QURKIES. What I lack are the skills to setup marketing strategies and bussines plans. Lucky me to have friends that are always willing to help me out when I get stuck.

The largest technical challenge for the development of QURKIES is to get the quality consistent enough to make the product suitable for under the age of 3. This needs to be solved with the right balance of design, material and production. This process might influence planning as well.

QURKIES is a co-creation project with a local Portugese cork production company. They are very helpfull and friendly people! I want to thank them for all the effort and patience they have put into this project.
