Photo frame product reaches market

Well, it's been a few years since I worked on this line of photo viewing and storing products along with Ian Coats MacColl, Tylor Garland, and a few other designers at Inventures/BrandNew Partners, but finally after much business model tweaking, one of the products has been released in shops nationwide, via a spinoff called Imago Products, based in the Bay Area. Some of the most interesting products may never make it to market, but that's the reality of making Things to Sell.

Here's the product announcement from Imago Products:


Imago Products LLC announces the launch of the Photopodô, a new stylish system for getting your photographs super-organized so you can actually find and share them.

The Photopod fits everything together in one central place: prints, index print, negatives, backup disk and labeling. A durable and clear plastic case protects photographs from dust, weather and harmful UV light; and with the index print and labels visible from the outside, itís easy to see the contents. The system includes a protective envelope for easy storage of negatives and a backup CD, while storage racks holding up to five Photopods allow easy organization on the coffee table, in a drawer, or on the wall.

Photopods are available immediately at the following stores, with more coming soon:
