Carson Ting’s tips for creating your own products

Get advice on choosing your idea, partnering with bigger brands, and using your creative skills to produce your own intellectual property.

Join Carson Ting on Apr 25, 2024

How do you create a successful product — without wasting time you don’t have?

Carson Ting is an award-winning studio owner and has been named one of Canada’s top 30 illustrators by the Canadian Design Resource.

He has produced work for brands like Nike, NBA, and Snoop Dogg. 

But after decades in creative services, he was hungry to create something of his own. He wanted to develop a product that could snowball into something more than any client project.

He had ideas…but he didn’t know where to start.

Then, Carson discovered a space where he could experiment — and Billion Buns was born.

Carson sold 888 collectibles on launch day, generating $318,202 in under one minute. 🤯

Developing a successful product is not reserved for some “special class” of creatives

On Apr 25, Carson will share the good, the bad, and the ugly stories from his journey with Billion Buns.

If you work in creative services, attend this Talk + Social to discover: 

  • Carson’s tips for generating and refining ideas with pen and paper.
  • How to poke holes in your ideas (so you don’t waste months of your life on a crappy concept).
  • How to gain the confidence and courage to develop your own intellectual property.

Join us for drinks and pizza with talented local creatives — and discover how smart creatives launch powerful products of their own.
