So, you were deciding yesterday what to eat and you ended up making yourslef a sandwich. Today, you couldn’t decide from red and white color tshirt you want to put on and you ended up wearing blue. We all face these kinds of problem where a small decision which may not affect anything at all, ended up consuming insane amount of time. Thanks to Dave, Calvin, and Spyn, all these decisions will not take insane amount of time anymore.
I was browsing through my Facebook feeds and saw that one of my friend had shared this campaign. I liked the idea so much immediately opened the link and took me to the Kickstarter campaign. After going through the pitching video, I thought of interviewing them, and here we have Dave from Onehunder (the parent company).
1. The name Spyn sounds interesting. How did you land with such a cool name?
Dave – We’re Onehundred, SPYN is our project name on Kickstarter. This is our 12th crowd funding project, all of them have had mis-spelled 4 letter names (Ledr, Pucs, Brdi, Kiki, Bagl). It’s a theme that got started with on our first project back in 2012, we just kept going with it! It’s in honor of my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Marble, who gave me a difficult time for my poor spelling!
Onehundred is named for the 100 mile radius where we manufacture what we create. If we can’t make it here, we don’t make it – it’s an interesting and rewarding constraint!
2. Tell us more about Spyn.
Dave – Spyn started out as a fun ‘relief’ product concept for everyone who had just gone through a stressful decision making period – here in the US (elections) and the UK (Brexit). We wanted to make people smile again!
