Pokestop.one

Founder/Designer
June 2016 – August 2016

Pokestop One was an online store with Pokémon inspired Colorado Gear. This idea came to me while on vacation, right when Pokémon GO was released within 3 days of the announcement I launched. I had designed the prints, set up individual product printing and fulfillment, all with ZERO overhead. Flash forward, we sold over $2000 of product within the first 3 weeks of launching. Unfortunately due to the decrease in popularity of Pokémon GO I decided to stop selling after 2 months of our start. This venture helped me learn about product marketing through various channels ranging from Reddit to Facebook Ads. It also made me value the key of community within consumer products.
