How to sell a design to a company?
I am planning to design a couple of phone cases which contain features other phone cases don't have.
My plan of action is like this:
- Design phone cases on computer
- Send emails around to companies that manufacture and sell phone cases showing my designs and asking for a certain price (like 10% sales on the phone cases)
This is first time I am doing something like this. Is the approach I am planning to do is correct in trying to get a company interested in my phones cases designs?
(If this is wrong place to ask this question then can you guide me to the correct Stack Exchange site please)
I am not a product designer, nor do I play one on social media but ...
Do not circulate your designs without an NDA!
You need to entice your prospective clients/manufacturers to meet with you, sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), then present the idea.
In a perfect world, you'd also patent your design. But that's not a cheap process and I suspect you don't have the funding for that.
