A great part of our DIY kit is in the handmade packaging we conceived, cause even that we wanted to be DIY and original.
We now have the 50 boxes that will lodge the pieces in our office, ready to mount/build.
Helping on that will be Bruno, our new industrial designer. Bruno is also brainstorming ideas on creating new shapes for Ziphius that you can incorporate in your creations. More on that later.
Here’s a current mockup of the box that will include our ziphiastic DIY kit.
