Why we chose Kickstarter?

Kickstarter has a history of being the ideal platform to launch breakthrough new products.  We felt from the start that Kickstarter would be the ideal place to launch The TravelCard™.  Support and feedback from the Kickstarter community on The TravelCard™ and future products will be invaluable.

GO DESIGN was founded with the aim of producing products that provide problem-solving solutions for busy people.  The TravelCard™ and other products we have on the drawing board accomplish this goal by taking a simple-is-better approach to functionality, without sacrificing design elements.

Brian Neufang’s background is in sales and marketing of consumer products. He was also a producer on the Kickstarter-funded indie hit movie, “Ingenious.” Our other partners/employees have extensive experience creating and sourcing successful products for national retailers, including unique houseware items, animated watches and computer accessories.

We hope to build the business by becoming known as the small company with big time saving ideas.
