quirky | social product development

Everyone has a product idea.

Chances are, you do too. Several years ago, our entrepreneur-in-chief, Ben, launched two successful businesses based on this premise: mophie, an iPod/iPhone accessories line, and kluster, an online group decision-making platform.

While running these companies, he received literally thousands of emails from people all over the world asking the same question: I have an idea for a product and think you can help me get it out of my head and into the marketplace. How do I start?

The truth is, neither mophie nor kluster were created to answer that question. They did, however, uncover the solution to bringing virtually any product idea to life. Part platform, part process, Quirky is rapidly changing the way people think about product development by using a unique method to harness the power of creativity.

Stylish Home Furniture | Home Decor | Ballard Designs

Helen Ballard Weeks founded Ballard Designs after winning the Southern Region of a 1982 Metropolitan Home contest for home of the year. Her Atlanta condominium was photographed for the magazine, and more than 500 people contacted Metropolitan Home asking where they could find furnishings, wall mirrors and other decor items like hers.

Sensing a great business opportunity, Helen quit her job and sold her award-winning condominium to start Ballard Designs in 1983. In that first two-page issue of her catalog, the featured item was a replica of a table found in her own home.

Fast-forward 25 years. Our one-woman start-up has blossomed into a premier multi-channel retailer of unique, European inspired home furnishings and accents. Following Helen's lead, our buyers travel the globe in search of inspiration for creating exceptionally crafted, exclusive products at a value, such as our signature upholstered headboards, ballroom folding chairs and home office wall shelves.
