2023 in a nutshell – Main Events & Features

Riding the economic wave

New Design Price Structure for Marketplace – Design commission harmonization

In February we had to make some important decisions which would change our design commission model. Following the pressure of inflation as well as the rising costs of energy, logistics and printing, we wanted to ensure the Marketplace was better prepared for potential challenges, which ultimately led to the harmonization of our design commission model.

Here’s how it works now

EU Design Contest: “Gothic Aesthetic”

We ran a big design contest in May for the designers from Star Classes 3, 4, and 5, and had incredible results. With the theme of “Gothic Aesthetic”, we were amazed (but not surprised, of course) by all the talent and creativity that was displayed.

See all the winners and their amazing designs here!

We even had a chance to get know our creatives better and interviewed the top 3 design contest Winners.

A huge thank you to ALL participants! We were so inspired by your creativity, so stay tuned for more design challenges.

  1. Geachte, kunnen jullie mijn designs goedkeuren aub. Ik ben begonnen met een eigen sportmerk en zou die graag gepubliceerd krijgen. Het is een zelfontworpen design met Canva. Het staat al een tijdje op wordt gecontroleerd. Zou graag van start kunnen gaan met verkopen van mijn sportmerk op marketplace.
