"I feel it's important to manufacture things here locally, because we get to establish a personal relationship with the vendors we work with and collaborate with them on projects together. When one of our products does well, we all do well together. The investments we make in our manufacturing eventually make their way back out to the local economy.”
Loving what you do is apparent in every product made by this week’s All New American Made featured American Small Business.
And how can you not love your work when your goods generate pure joy!
Please meet Matt Tait founder and designer of TAIT Design Co. located in Detroit, MI.
Matt started TAIT Design Co. in 2013, in his basement, as a side project.
The first product Matt designed was the Turbo Flyer which, in 2013, was chosen as one of the best-designed products at the AIGA National Gallery in New York.
TAIT Design Co. has come pretty far from its humble beginnings.
The collection now includes the Sling Slang Yoyo
and The Perpetual Calendar
that will enhance any home.
In the fall of 2015, Matt left his advertising job with over 8 years of experience to pursue “the side project” full time selling online and to the trade.
All New American presents another remarkable American Small Business. Tait Design Co., an independent product design studio based in Detroit, MI, designs and creates toys that are beautiful, simple and clever.
Matt can be proud to be a part of the ‘American Made’ community that is fuel for the engine that powers America.
Thank you for giving us your time today. Have a great week.
