Attainable Design

Art and design-related tools are becoming increasingly accessible

While high-tech tools like 3D printing devices and laser-engravers were once left to experts, these products are now being made accessible in smaller and simpler forms for personal use. These tools are giving artists and designers more flexibility in what they are capable of creating in their own homes and studios. This increased autonomy in the realms of art, design, and innovation works to give small brands and individuals a chance to enter markets that large brands tend to monopolize due to their vast resources.
Workshop Question - How can your company support smaller initiatives to offer more authentic and outside-the-box products or services?
