We curate creative products that are ready for production, verified by COBLISHER. Only when they are completely funded through this platform will they be produced and delivered. Should not enough supporters be found, all customers get their money back.
Lea Brousse, Lars Harmsen, Raban Ruddigkeit & Andreas Fehn have invented COBLISHER in 2017 to provide a new audience with good ideas. After 10 years of successful publications, we want to share our experiences with other creative people and help them to develop and distribute their own concepts – limited editions and in best craftsmanship. We are not a publishing house, but a platform that opens up spaces, finds ways and gives ideas new chances. Please contact us and let us work together on the future of creativity!
