27 Crowdsourced Designs

From Jewelery to Restaurant Designs by Consumers, for Consumers

— June 17, 2009 — Marketing
Crowdsourced design is bigger now than it’s ever been. If the key to successful selling is giving people what they want, why not just skip all the tests, surveys, trials and errors and ask consumers directly what they want? And then, why not get them to design, set the price, or even physically make the product FOR you? Some savvy entrepreneurs are doing just that.

From jewelry to furniture, to entire houses, this cluster looks at some of the most innovative ways designers are crowdsourcing products today.
