Skandicrush

Founder

I'm most proud of growing this business 10-fold in the first six months. I love surprises, so it's a treat to be able to surprise hundreds of my fellow design lovers each month.

I'm currently in the process of systematizing some processes that were holding us. If you have any experience with import or fulfillment. I'd love to talk to you.

Also, if you'll be attending Maison & Objet this November or Formex in August. I'm looking for a design-inspired travel buddy.
