“Ponoko … the first online shop for individualized goods – things designed and made just for you.

Right now you can shop the marketplace for designer crafted goods, request a designer to make something especially for you, or create and make something yourself.”

So.. What is ‘Ponoko?’

“We wanted to create a place where you could shop for and make things that are completely original, and do this in the greenest way possible.

So we made Ponoko … the first online shop for individualized goods – things designed and made just for you.

Right now you can shop the marketplace for designer crafted goods, request a designer to make something especially for you, or create and make something yourself.

And if you want to turn your creativity into cash, you can set up your own Internet shop to sell your designs and products using our web commerce and digital make-on-demand services. No set up fees. No monthly fees. No listing or sales fees. No minimum orders. No inventory. Simply click to design, make, sell and deliver your creativity to the world, at your own speed.”

Why this is such a great idea
At least two reasons:

“Today’s booming market of pro-am designers face a daunting task trying to make anything, let alone commercialize their product ideas. They need design advice, materials supply, manufacturer support, sales and distribution partners and a management system. Organizing any part of this is a major challenge, organizing all of it is a nightmare. So most have just given up.

And for good reason, until now. Ponoko is the world’s first online service that makes it simple and profitable for pro-am designers to create, make, sell and deliver their original creations to market.

 Everyday consumers quietly envy those who have the time and money to buy original products, while searching high and low to find good quality reasonably priced items that set them apart from everyone else. The search is often futile, until now. Ponoko is the world’s first online marketplace that makes it simple and affordable to search for, find and buy individualized goods.”

A unique CD package – Wandering Pleiades


Pleiades is a Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing female group. The group was founded in May 2006 in Thessaloniki, in order to contribute to the diffusion of the Greek-speaking folk polyphonic singing.

Kostas Bartsokas designed their first album “Wandering Pleiades”. The cd package is designed from a single cut craft stock without the use of any glue or plastic parts. It was printed with pantone black and white. The package is inspired by their clean – vocal only – music and reflects an earthly and clean tone which is emphasized by the stock color and feel. The six Pleiades sit underneath the bridge and sing their songs. The artwork references the old bridges of Epirus and some traditional patterns of Epirotic knit ware.
