Trunki Case by Rob Law

with 2 comments

I have just received an invite from Rob Law to a party at their studios in Bristol to celebrate 1 million Trunki sales.  A really nice  guy and  former colleague, Rob came up with the concept in 1997 and has released a number of versions since.  In 2006 Rob made an appearance on Dragons’ Den where the product took a grilling, however he then appeared on three more comeback shows, with Trunki becoming recognised as ‘the one that got away’. We all dream of one day designing and bringing a new product to market, Rob had absolute belief in his concept and proved that with a great design combined with the determination to succeed dreams can come true.

      Although non of the dragons backed the Trunki, the exposure it gained following the program did I feel contribute indirectly to its success. As the saying goes – ‘there is no such thing as bad press’.

      Thanks for your comment. 🙂
