Cocoa Grocery Launch!

Cocoa Design Life Grocery banner in Redbubble

Although it is not our original intention when the first date we blog here, 
it is our desire in certain extent. 

It was started almost ten years ago, when we had discovered Spoonflower; as most of you may know that, you can create your own fabric pattern by using of any media and technique; which is fun and creative. But unfortunately, they are quite "limit" in manufacturing; even though they team up with Sprouts Pattern and Roostery later on, wall paper and fabric oriented products are still their only main stream. So, it's a bit of frustrating when some potential pattern that can fit into our daily life product but can't be made.

Well, I have to confess that I spend too little time to further explore this issue until this year, the world is changing so fast especially in e-commerce, numerous of build-on-demand platforms had already been mature and doing well in the market. So, here we are in Redbubble

Usually, throw pillow is a standard product,

but we want something else such as this one :D

The best offer in this platform is the possibility of pattern re-sizing and orientation to different product under the designer's control. This is what I wish for so long.

Coffee Fantasy fabric design in minky fabricYou may ask then why we are still built our Cocoa Fabric shop in Spoonflower, because it do provide a number of good quality fabric choices that others don't. 

Like this "minky" fabric, so......fluffy and cute !

Therefore, before a real creative online "Grocery" is found on earth, these are still the best channel for us in the mean time.

So, take a visit to our shop if you have a minute, 
we will upload more design in the coming future. 
Enjoy !

零售租約愈縮愈短, 流動辦公室嘅工作模式, 住屋空間愈嚟愈細, 師傅人工愈加愈貴...... 等等,仲有各式各樣嘅原因都令我覺得係時候準備辭官歸故里。


其實早係十年前已經嘗試係Spoonflower設計布欵(因為成日揾唔到一D啱心水嘅布欵俾客人用),但係一方面當時佢哋 啱啱成立冇幾耐,支援好少; 而我哋又忙緊正職,所以只係隨意設計咗十幾欵就擺低, 估唔到呢粒種子到今時今日又可以重生。

十年人事幾翻新, Spoonflower 今時今日已經發展到好大,唔少平面/布藝設計師已經係常客,而我,就係一個初哥!雖然因為從事室內設計會對布料及製作軟件有一定認識, 但係今次當我認真對待嘅時候,就發覺要設計一D市場受落又唔太"行"嘅布藝,係當中大有學問……所以, 呢個就係我要重新投入同學習嘅一個教室。

雖然要投放嘅時間,資源同心機肯定唔少, 但係身為設計行業嘅人,唔多唔少都會有份勇氣去嘗試同發掘新可能性嘅心態;期望有一日可以擁有一個CocoaDesignLife 品牌嘅"可可布館",設計出一D較有個性嘅室內布藝。或許,呢個都係另一個職場上嘅延伸都未定?

短短半年嘅時間,令我對網上銷售有多D了解; 重新再強化自己嘅攝影技巧,平面設計,混合媒體及至Photoshop 嘅運用係必需嘅。所以話世界上永遠冇學得完嘅事物,亦唔可能會悶,只要你肯向前行出一步,奇妙旅程又再度展開!
