Help us pick a new design (and be in with a chance to win)

One of the exciting things we've been working on this year is a collaboration with the International School of Colour and Design (ISCD) with each of the students in the Surface Design course coming up with a potential new design for our rolled beeswax pillars.

The first batch of designs are in.
We're spoiled for choice and we need your feedback.

We're potentially launching 2 new designs... depending on your feedback.  The first design we'll be launching was chosen by a judging panel consisting of Louise Olsen (Dinosaur Designs), Deb Bibby (editor of Real Living magazine), Jodie Warters (Surface Design teacher, ISCD) and me.  The winner will be announced (and profiled) in the Christmas issue of Real Living magazine (on sale on 11th November).

Our potential second design will depend on your feedback.  For me, there was at least one other design crying out to be part of the Queen B range.  But ultimately the success of any new product is completely dependent upon having customers that love it.  Please be opinionated, it will only take a second - you can comment below or comment on our Facebook page.  I'll be picking one entry to win a prize pack valued at over $350 (that's 1 in every size of the new design & a pack of Jam Jar Tealights because they're gorgeous).  The winning comment will be picked on Sunday, 3rd November @ 5pm and my decision is final!

Vote loud.  Vote long.  Vote strong.
Here's your chance to shake off the shackles of your day to day life and be a product designer for a minute... and you'll have my heartfelt gratitude too.

Here's the line up (and following is a closer up photograph of each design).

A very big thank you also to Louise Olsen, Deb Bibby and Jodie Warters for being on the 'pro's' judging panel and sharing their time and expertise.  It was a privilege.  And it heralded a whole rethink about Queen B and what we do.

Thanks for being part of this journey with me.  There is no Queen B without our customers.  It is you who ultimately keep our dream alive with the choices you make.
