theclever: Designer Registration


What is theclever:?

theclever: is a global marketplace where emerging designers from New Zealand and around the world connect with the design-hungry, share their stories and sell their work. Unlike other large design sites, we curate theclever collection. We select like-minded designers with great ideas and work that has a unique story. We look for considered design, beautiful craftsmanship and something inherently clever in the product.
