Tin Fox was an e-commerce platform for handmade and vintage designers and vendors. Along with two co-founders, I built TinFix.co in response to a problem: searching the web for unique, handmade goods, straight from the maker takes a lot of time. Our brand promise to the consumer was “Hunting for perfection, made easy.”
The site was a hub for vendors to promote new products, secure pre-orders, and provide personalized products direct to consumers. We screened the vendors on our site &mdash invitation-only e-commerce means we’d ensure a specific level of quality.
We also wanted to allow makers and vendors on TinFox to sell uniquely personal items. Vendors and designers could “pre-sell” items and consumers could vote regularly on product samples and ideas they’d love to own. When a level of popularity for a certain product idea or sample was reached, the maker/vendor was then invited then put that item into production and fulfill pre-orders.
