Dijital Fix, premiere in SF
The first store to officially stock speakers in the US is Dijital Fix in San Francisco. The founder, David, have been a backer from the start, so it’s only fair that his great store gets the extra attention of being the first to have them.
Шведский дизайн в Москве (Swedish Design Goes Moscow)
The Swedish embassy in Moscow have invited me over to the Moscow Center of Contemporary Arts to talk about "crowdfunding design innovation" next wednesday. Super cool opportunity to see Russia! If your in the neighborhood, please swing by and I will demo the speaker for you!
If you have any tips on stores or places to visit, please feel free to reach out! I know we have at least one backer in Moscow (I will email you).
New marketing material
We are gearing up for the next chapter. Here is a teaser from Pete Gardners iPhone from when he was shooting our new product images this weekend in London. We discovered Pete after he made a great picture of the speaker for Stuff magazine in the UK.
Thank you so much for making all this happen!
