Why we’re collaborating with Australian designers like you.
At inke, we’re champions of great design and local talent. Our new feature lets us celebrate the best of both.
One of our favourite parts of running inke is sharing our design inspiration with you. Whether it’s here on the blog or on our social channels, we love to showcase examples of the custom product packaging we’ve helped brands across Australia bring to life.
With this in mind, we want to continue to use our platform to showcase brilliant custom box design – no matter who creates it. And who better to highlight than local talent?
As mentioned earlier in our blog series, we wanted to come up with a way to engage with our designer audience, those of which who don’t necessarily need to purchase any packaging, but share a passion for design.
So, with that being said, learn more about why we’re launching this new feature below.
We love Australian talent
We’ve been blown away by the standard of designs coming through inke – and can only imagine what talented freelancers could do with our design templates.
So – why imagine? We want to push this thought into reality by creating a platform to lift up Australian designers.
Getting seen in a competitive industry can be hard – we know that.
Luckily, we’ve had the chance to engage with a lot of big & small name businesses. Whether that be through working with one another or simply following our Instagram account, ultimately we’ve created a community who share a common interest – brand & design.
So, how do we put that to use?
We want to give the opportunity to freelancers (anybody, really!) to submit their designs for us to feature on our social channels & potentially our pre-design page. This allows us to fully credit you for your own work, whilst showing off your awesome skills. Who knows what opportunities could open up for you!
One thing’s for sure – we’re going to uncover some amazing talent.
We’re creating opportunities
By bringing freelance (and start-up) designers to the party, not only are we getting them seen – but we could be opening up doorways to getting them work.
How many of you have come to inke, looking for inspiration (and maybe a bit of help) to create your perfect custom box design?
With a rotating showcase of local talent soon to be on offer, there’ll be no shortage of designers to engage with if you need help for your own brand. Get an idea of what’s possible, or cut to the chase and reach out to a designer you like – it’s completely up to you!
We’d love to play a role in putting creatives in touch with those in need of their talents, and setting up relationships for ongoing business. It would be great to see!
We’re growing local business
We told you we wanted to take inke to the next level this year – and we’re doing that by lifting others up along the way.
We’re proud to be an Australian owned and operated company, based in Melbourne. Bringing business to Australia and doing it all on our shores is something we’re passionate about, but we’re not just wanting to grow and develop inke – we want to play our part in supporting other homegrown endeavours, too.
So if you’re a talented designer, or a business in need of some creative input – inke’s got you covered. Show us what you can do – you never know who might be looking…
