Overview: Rinnovo Studio Direct Connect Program
After more than 10 years designing and developing products across the lifestyle category, we identified a huge gap between Brands and Manufacturers. So... Rinnovo Studio launched the "Direct Connect" program to drive transparency into the Manufacturing network through direct introductions.
Who is the Direct Connect program best suited for?
This approach is ideal for brands who need to quickly connect with product manufacturers (specifically in the USA & Europe) and desire guidance and just a little initial hand-holding during the development process from industry veterans!
How does the Direct Connect Program work?
The process is 1:1 workshop style. You as the client will have 1:1 meetings with Rinnovo to plan and review every step of the design and production process. Including you in every meeting allows you to learn the process so you can do it on your own. Rinnovo will set 1:1 meetings with your various production partners and teach you how and when to interact with them. At the conclusion of our Direct Connect Program, you will have direct relationships with your Manufacturing teams. This is mega...
What is the Direct Connect Program timeline?
I would recommend budgeting 3-4 months. Here is what you can expect:
Discovery Call to review project (Client + Rinnovo)
Program Plan & Action Plan development (Client + Rinnovo)
Manufacturer Calls/Zoom Sessions/Site Visits (Client + Rinnovo + Manufacturing team)
Financial Projections (Client + Rinnovo)
Prepare Creative that will be used on/in product (Client + Rinnovo + Designer/Artist)
Sample Production (Manufacturer)
Sample Production Check-In's (Client + Rinnovo + Manufacturing team)
Sample Approval (Client)
Conclusion of Direct Connect Program: Client has production ready samples, Client has direct relationships with Creative team and Manufacturing team, Client has learned how to manage product development and manufacturing, Client is ready to move forward on their own!
