About this project
The first product being introduced by the Bigo brand is the Bigo Bag Five. The Five, as its name implies, has 5 separate functions that provide all-around convenience and protection any time you need. The bag can be switched in no time to be used as a raincoat, a baby sling, or a picnic blanket. You can even increase the carrying capacity of the bag by zipping two or more bags together. There is really no limit to how many bags you can put together.
The Making of Bigo Bag Five
We first sketched out our vision. After we had the idea on paper and made our first prototype.
# 1 50 L Backpack
The size of the Bigo Bag Five varies depending on the contents of the bag.
# 2 Rain Poncho
With just a few motions the Bigo Bag Five becomes a rain poncho, short or long, just when you need it. Just the right protection whether you find yourself in a drizzle or a downpour. It's also good for light snow.
# 3 Baby SlingIn one quick motion Bigo Bag Five becomes a safe, comfortable sling that both new mother's and father's can use. Parents can hold their children close while at the same have their hands free for whatever they need to do. Mom, Dad and baby are all happy campers!
# 4 Picnic Blanket
As a picnic blanket, the Bigo Bag Five is perfect in the park or anywhere outdoors; just pull it out, throw it down and kick back and read or chat with friends. And don't worry about wet grass, the Five is water-resistant.
# 5 ExpandableYou can zip a few Bigo Bag Fives together to make a much bigger bag, perfect for when you have too much to handle.
The Bigo Bag Five comes in twelve assorted colors with 100% water-resistant material and all the labels glow in the dark. How cool is that?
Bigo Bag Five is a comfortable, practical solution for everyday situations that pop up in life. The Bigo Bag Five is the first product we've created but we have a lot more ideas for multifunctional products, and with your support, we can create a Bigo brand which will provide practical, multifunctional solutions for everyday.Now that we've made the first prototypes, we are looking for support to have a produce the bags in larger quantities at a higher level of production. So we come to you, Kickstarter, and ask you to help us help make your life easier.
Thanks in advance!
György HalászGeorge is one of the creators behind the Bigo Bag Five. He designed the first prototype and also created the website.
Krisztian is the other creator who not only added great insight into the design, but was instrumental in the testing of the bag. He developed the logo and packaging design.
As we are located in Budapest, Hungary, we did not have the access to the US market, which will be of great interest once we get funded. With Joseph Szokody, a close friend, we found the right person to help us with the US market. He will be responsible for the US market in terms of successful funding. We will take care of the European market, the production and quality issues. The production will take place in Budapest, Hungary, where we found a company which can produce Bigo Bag Five the way we imagined it.
We thank everyone who helped us design and make the Bigo Bag Five and we hope with your continued support, we can make it a success.
Risks and challenges
The hard yards with suppliers and fine-tuning of the process has already been completed with now only the need for achieving the necessary funding to get this project off the ground. Further to my personal expertise in working with complex projects comes the further knowledge of collaboration and teamwork. From the initial stages of this project I have constantly consulted with and been advised by not only the various experts of the fields brought together for this project, but other Kickstarter creators on their experiences and recommendations on how to best deliver to this incredible community.
Meeting Deadlines: With all Kickstarter projects this is one of the most critical elements of delivering a project not only successfully, but in a timely manner without forfeiting the quality or individuality that comes with the supporting of unique projects. The hard work and effort of this project thus far demonstrates the drive and capacity to deliver not only on your expectations, but to exceed them.
Therefore, in the event that unexpected issues arise in the delivery schedule, we will do our utmost to minimize the impact on our supporters and dedicate ourselves to providing the best, most honest, experience.
I can think of no better place to continue on this incredible journey than Kickstarter and promise to deliver on this project to the absolute fullest of my capabilities.
These products will always be with us, there to make your life easier.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
