Unboxing Experience

Now that most everyone has received their Evoras, heres an inside look at what made the yoyo so special. Something that is always overlooked is packaging. Many people said they didn't care about fancy packaging but it was something I did for myself. So many companies out there have lackluster packaging, but for a premium product you need to go the extra mile. So I did.
 
Here is the dreaded packing sleeve that caused so much delay. The print finally decided to work, and in my opinion really sets it apart. The line work on the back side was done with combined efforts of myself and my sister. I make sure it was subtle enough for it to still look minimal.
The cards were printed on this ridiculously hard to find paper. Its not quite 12 point thick, but definitely a card feel to it. It has this really subtle texture that I love about it, and I was actually worried it wouldn't print properly. Worked out amazing in the end. 
I think the number one comment I got on the packaging was that it wasn't packaged like a toy, but rather a high end jewelry or electronic device. After all, we know its more than just a yoyo. I hope this gives enough insight for the ones who didn't get a chance to snag one up on the release date. I am already working on a brand new design and if it all works out - will be ready for November/December.

Hi, guess I am lat to the party. I really really want one, any one. If for any reason you find one for sale or have a line on one for sale, please let me know. I want one bad. Please. Great site by the way. And, what looks like an awesome throw. I’m not great, but have a fine appreciation for things well made and designed. I do hand engraving, like you find on fine knives and guns and accessories. If you ever need something, we could work out a barter! I’ll be keeping up with you for any future releases… Thanks, Brett

STELVIA - Plastic & Titanium Design Study
STELVIA - Plastic & Titanium Design Study

Been a long time since I released much. A lot of things have been going on behind the scenes but a lot of it has to due with either financial or business legal stuff. Both that are not as interesting as I would hope but is definitely necessary going forward. I actually prototyped the initial plastic Stelvia design way earlier on in 2023, but only picked up working on it again at the start of this year.

AKURA MG - Development of Luftverk's First Magnesium

It has been a while since Ive written much - the second half of 2023 was insanely busy with project management. Since the release of the plastic lineup, I had very little time to focus on the roots of what made Luftverk so exciting. I realized this was a huge problem - I needed to guide Luftverk back to it's roots of exploring new materials and build product lineups that told a story stemmed from exploration. I had done this with plastics last year but in 2024 I would like to also focus back onto some more products that use exotic materials. While being incredibly late to the party this recent project is Luftverk's first Magnesium ever, which was at first canceled and almost never released.

It has been nearly 4 months since Ive been in Japan, and 5 months since I left Toronto. Writing that out makes it feel short but in reality it feels like forever ago. The last launch of the Plastic Peak was an overwhelming experience. I felt so grateful to work with CLYW, a company I grew up with. When the World Yoyo Contest hit I didn't know what to expect, but I had started noticing a feeling of burn out after grinding out so many yoyo related projects and in a weird introverted way I was a bit reluctant to go.
