Have you ever thought about designing and creating a product? This month we're talking to Patrick Durgin-Bruce, design studio owner and founder of Mymo, about how he turned a love of type into a product idea and a business. We'll talk to Patrick about what made him take the step to start the new business, what he learned about manufacturing, 3D printing, how he gained customers, and how he fulfills orders while still running his studio. We'll also look into how Patrick's training as a designer impacted his experience in developing the product and launching the business. This intimate event will be at the Mymo office, so this is your chance to ask Patrick your questions about starting a product company.
Patrick Durgin-Bruce is the Co-Founder of Mymo, a line of type-based jewelry and housewares; and the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Ultravirgo, a branding and design firm with clients including the United Nations and the National Parkinson Foundation. 
Moderated by Laura Berkowitz Gilbert, Principal of Boomerang Studio
