Munich (Germany), June 2013 - What happens if design and function meet humour? Then practical and funny products for all situations are the result. Behind the “products for creative people” slogan is the Bavarian company team & marke. Since 2012 the managing director Simon Krebs (29) and Thomas Kress (40) have been developing and marketing design products. With their iPad/tablet cushion fläzbag they already had their first success.
It is everyday situations that let the resourceful Munich duo come up with their ideas. Where, for example, should the iPad go if you’re laying on the sofa and don’t want arms that have gone to sleep? “We always go through life with open eyes and like to think of new things”, says Simon Krebs. “Our products should not only be practical but especially also have a cool design and produce a smile.” The combination of humour and design is currently still seldom found on the German market.
A further advantage: Cheap imports are taboo! Instead of this team & marke markets products that they have developed themselves and that have been produced on their behalf. The début work “fläzbag” immediately made its way into the hearts of design oriented buyers. In just two weeks after the launch of sales the likeable iPad/tablet cushion was sold out. It is not only German dealers who are snatching up the innovation. Further target markets are, as with all team & marke products, the USA, Great Britain and Japan. International design bloggers are also impressed, as can be read in one blog: “Germany makes you think of wars and Bauhaus design elements and Autobahns and such. Germans with a playful sense of humour? It’s hard to believe. But it's true.”
However Simon Krebs and Thomas Kress don’t want to rest on this positive response. As well as this, in their creative range is the “flirtsaver”. The heart-shaped accessory for singles ensures a stylish flirt, which can be continued online after the party. Soon in the repertoire: The “amazing paper sleeves”, a special cover in book form for iPad mini & kindle paperwhite, in the style of 50s pulp art dime novels. The heads of the team don’t only smoke for their own brand. Ideas and products are also devised for customers from various sectors (gift items, lifestyle, technology, accessories etc.) With this the team can fall back on years of experience in product design and brand development. And on their exciting life full of amusing situations and people which enrich their thoughts. For more information about team & marke please visit www.teamundmarke.com.
