Impresario


~ The italian term, Impresario, simply means to be a connector ~
I’m an impresario for designers and companies with a focus on tableware design and small objects. The goal is to make worthwhile introductions between companies and designers.


You’re a designer

Great that you come to check out this page. You probably have an awesome design that’s just ready for the world. You might have pitchedplugged it with one or two companies. They didn’t select it. Maybe they didn’t even respond. So you moved on, working on one of your countless other ideas. Enough inspiration right?

Still, you feel it’s a bit of a pity that this design didn’t see daylight, you want your designs to reach people. But you just don’t want to put any more energy and time into finding the right company for it. You don’t even know where to begin. That’s where I can help.

My goal is to gather great designs, that are ready to go, and combine them in a collective portfolio. With this portfolio I will contact the right people and companies. Creating efficiency and a bigger reach. If you get selected I will connect you and the company, making sure all necessary information is transferred to both of you. After that I step out of the process. I will be there for you on the sideline if any questions pop up. I’m happy to answer these and think along.

Initially there are no costs involved, I only make money if a successful match is made. Since I’m an agency I ask a similar percentage usual in that industry: 10% of royalties and fees that come out of the connection.

Interested in joining this portfolio? Send an e-mail to info@miekecuppen.com.
I will respond with a simple contract that can be confirmed by e-mail plus some questions and information.

For companies

Thank you for visiting this page. Your brand has a strong collection, with distinctive designs, a clear vision. You know what you want and understand your target group and market you operate within. You’re always on the look out for great designs and designers, new emerging talents, products that are on trend or completely new and innovative.

Still, there’s a lot out there. You might miss out on something and sometimes it seems hard to find the right designers that are eager to work with the industry, the ones with the best ideas, that fit your vision and your market.

That’s where I can help. I gather designs and translate them into a combined portfolio for you to explore. This selection is in line with your vision and collection. You can choose the designs and designers that are interesting to you. There are different ways of following up the process, let’s discuss. That will help me to make the best possible selection based on your needs, vision and the type of product you’re looking for.

Initially there are no costs involved, I only make money if a successful match is made. Since I’m an agency I ask what’s usual in that industry: 10% of royalties and fees that come out of the connection. If the request you have involves a more specialist search, long term involvement or is simply quite complicated I will propose an additional fee on top of the royalty percentage. Let’s discuss, I’m eager to hear about your plans!
