About this project
Snomee hits the streets of New York - check out what people thought!
Introduction from Michael O'Sullivan - founding member of Snomee
What is Snomee?
Snomee is an answer to an age old problem. That problem is - choosing gifts is hard. Even when you are buying gifts for your closest family, best friend or the love of your life, the act of buying a gift can seem like a potential minefield.
You might know your sister is a big reader, but how can you be sure that the book you buy her will be one she’ll actually want to read? Your boyfriend might be a technology nut, but do you know exactly what gadgets he has a use for?
When faced with these dilemmas a lot of people go for gift certificates. Money, after all, has a habit of being sucked away on paying bills and buying essentials, but a gift certificate forces the recipient to buy something they will really enjoy.
Even then, there’s something that feels a little bit empty about handing someone an envelope for their birthday or Christmas. Where’s the joy of unwrapping it? The anticipation of wondering what’s inside?
This is where the Snomee comes in. Our range of cute, quirky snow globe designs each has a secret compartment hidden in the base, where you can hide a gift certificate and a special message. While the gift certificate can go towards something your loved one has been itching to buy, the Snomee itself lasts as a special memento to keep forever.
That’s what we’re about, creating those special memories that come with a great gift well-given.
With a perfect area to leave a personal message.
Who are you?
We’re a team of entrepreneurs and designers led by creative guru Michael O’Sullivan. Jonathan Blair, the man behind our product and character designs, is known for his work on projects such as the Oscar nominated feature film 'The Illusionist' and the BAFTA Scotland award winning short animation 'The Happy Duckling'.
We’re all extremely excited about the Snomee concept, and have to confess we’ve come to love the characters we’ve created for this range, whether they’re gathering around the entertainment centre, making a brave (if doomed) attempt at doing some DIY, or simply trying to get their books to stand up straight!
What’s this got to do with me?
We’ve established our initial range of products and we’re building up brand recognition, so right now we’re looking to take the next big step: Full production.
For this we’re going to need access to a range of production tools that will help us to ensure that Snomees are both affordable and to the quality our customers are going to expect. With your help we can raise the $50,000 we need to get those tools and Snomees in full mass production in time for everybody’s Christmas shopping.
And we’ll make sure we reward you for your efforts. Depending on how much you pledge, our rewards range from sending you a Snomee of your very own, right up to giving you a once in a lifetime chance to work with our talented designers to create your own unique, customised Snomee. Take a look at our pledge rewards to learn more.
Still want to know more?
Have a look below to see some of the fabulous (not to mention adorable) Snomee designs we’re looking to put out in time for Christmas. But this is only the beginning.
Once we’re off the ground we intend to have a Snomee range in place for every major holiday, with designs to suit all tastes and interests. We think we’re going to change gift giving forever, but it all starts right here, with you.
