Emelie Andersson - KIDDO - sustainable interior design for creative children
KIDDO - sustainable interior design for creative children #1
Describe the idea:
KIDDO makes it easier for parents to find second-hand products for their children. This is a local company in Helsingborg that aims to increase the reuse of children's furniture in the community. KIDDO provides a range of upcycling services like furniture renovation, selling/buying used interior products and custom-made orders.
Who are you? Previous education/jobs/ experiences etc.
I am a psychology student at Lund university with an interest in behavior management, organizational culture and innovation. I have also studied communication, design and illustration. I have always had an interest in creative projects, upcycling and interior design. My previous work experiences is in retail, service and the event sector.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
During the summer I will create a website for marketing and customer orders. Me and my team will also get a creative studio and start upcycling used interior products that will be ready to sell in August. In addition we will stock up some furniture for upcycling projects during the fall.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
I expect to get some experience in starting a business, marketing products and finding new customers. With the possibility of working full time with my project during the summer, I hope to find an efficient way of working part-time with KIDDO during the rest of the year, to keep it up and running.
