Ten years of gratitude from Wonderstuff

Our lovely members Wonderstuff share the same birthday as us... Happy Birthday!  Throughout their ten years, Wonderstuff have been involved in the network, and have experienced success in finding clients through our events such as Violet's at one of our Design speed dating workshops and through helping clients to access grant funding for projects such as Durham Gins packaging design. 

Founder Paul tells us more about their 10 year anniversary.

"This month marks the 10 year anniversary of Wonderstuff. The last decade has provided a rollercoaster of, well pretty much everything, as we’ve enjoyed successes and failures.

I’m hugely grateful to the people who have been a part of this journey (including Design Network North).

I’m grateful to those who trusted Wonderstuff to help them on their journey. To those who challenged us and made us stand our ground. To those who joined Wonderstuff. To those who left.

Each and every one has played a part in shaping Wonderstuff as it is today.

Most importantly. I’m grateful to my family for supporting me in my decision to launch my own business. In their support of the late nights and weekends it has taken from them for me to build the dream I had many years ago.

If over the next decade we can create more brands which owners and customers love. If we can shape the careers of more talented people. If we can continue to enjoy each and every journey.

Then we will still be happy. And there’s a lot to be said for that. "
