The Twitter response from being chosen as one of Theo's SBS has been brilliant - immediately our followers were upped and interactions with other companies and influential people sky rocketed. It's great just to get our brand name out there to people that wouldn't already have known about us. And it's lovely to feel part of the SBS family!
We are a South London based t-shirt and sweatshirt design company. We have been up and running for about two months, but Bundy & Webster is something we've been working on for the last year or so. Our vision was to collaborate with up-and-coming artists, illustrators and photographers to create original, limited edition and high quality pieces that were almost works of art on clothing. We also wanted to give young artists a platform to showcase their talent in a more commercial sense. Our first collection is available to see online now at www.bundyandwebster.com, and we're currently working on our second collection to be released in Spring 2013.
We've learnt many things over the past year - first and foremost that it's not easy running your own business! A few tips is always to sleep on it... you always seem to have a different perspective in the morning. It's sometimes difficult to be objective when it comes to looking at your own business - make sure you have a good sounding-board [in this case, it's our mums who always seem to know best!] who can tell us when we need to rethink something or go back to the drawing board. And it's cliched, but sometimes knowing when less is more can be the most valuable asset to your company.
