Design is when you see the ceepy and make it pretty.

Sometimes, it takes a really open mind to make the grotesque sublimely beautiful. An eye for beauty and certainly inner peace to make the world at large re-look, re-think and re-assess how we can re-interpret what is aesthetically pleasing to us.

Here are some creepy pretty insect prints on expensive silk from Giles Deacon SS10 Collection, Karen Walker SS12 Collection & Klaus Haapaniemi’s Scarf Collection – do you have any you’d like to add? Have you ever saw beauty in something rather gross?

FUTURE NOTION IS LAUNCHING SOON!

So we have some extremely exciting news –  we are launching soon – end of this month to be exact!

So, if you’d like PRIORITY ACCESS during our private beta launch, do send us an email at info@futurenotion.com

If you are a DESIGNER looking to sell on FUTURE NOTION, do drop us an email at designers@futurenotion.com.

Send us a few pictures of your work, with a little bit about yourself and we’ll hit you up with our designer kit.

But in case you’re wondering WHY FUTURE NOTION, here are the top 5 reasons why we rock:

1. We are a low-cost & economical way of launching your brand, selling your collection & publicizing your work. We want you to succeed.

2. We focus our resources on digital and social trends so that you can concentrate on what you do best – create, design and innovate. Leave the selling, marketing and tedious social strategies to us. Already working an online store? No worries, think of us as an additional sales channel to reach a global audience.

3. Expose your brand to a design-centric community. Our huge database is chock-full with architects, stylists, interior designers, media/PR professionals, retailers and design-savvy customers – take advantage of it!

4. We understand branding, more importantly, we understand how selling in a well-designed social store can contribute to the image of your brand. Thus, FUTURE NOTION will never misrepresent your brand’s image, because we too, have standards. We believe in winning by adding value, constantly innovating and looking to the future, NOT pushing for price reductions.  Did we mention we prefer to build a strong brand proposition over bargain basement prices and throwaway goods?

5. We truly believe in the value of Design to Solve, Simplify & Inspire.

Most of all, tell us what you need – we want to hear from customers, designers, educators, artists, writers, and your neighbors.

Have a happy Monday & hope to hear from all of you soon!
