I’ve always had a passion for low-level curation. I love to sort songs on Spotify, arrange folders on my laptop and rearrange the living room in our flat. Things for Designers is a curated selection of Amazon UK products that I like and other designers might consider also.
The site is super simple – a static site with simple code and minimal CSS. It has an accompanying Instagram account where I promote the site and post the new products as I add them. I aim to add a new product every two days.
The branding is loosely based off that of my site, and although I link visitors to Things for Designers from here, I don’t direct back to this website. I try to keep them relatively separate.
When I have the time I add a new image–this involves scouting Google Images for a super high-res version, fitting it on to my bespoke grid, then uploading it to the site with a link to the product.
Currently only tailored to the UK market, I plan to expand to more of Europe and the US, then Canada, India, Australia and so on. Long-term I’d love to sell products directly, but having a collection, I curate myself is my favourite part of this project—even if it is yet to make much money.
