WORD FROM THE EDITOR

Oink oink! Welcome back to the new-look SeaPigs monthly newsletter, ‘The Piggy Post’! Summer is in full swing (not that you can tell in rainy England where we are), and the SeaPigs team are hard at work as ever. We are entering the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in the category of ‘Entrepreneurial Spirit’ and we would appreciate your well wishes for our success! We think we embody the category perfectly and it would mean a great deal to win. It just goes to show that everything is on the up for the SeaPigs brand. We are bolstering our catalogue of podcasts, interviews, videos and blogs, as you’ll see in this month’s edition, as well as more about the development of our Drifters.

PIGGY PODCAST



Click on the picture to follow the link to our next SeaPigs podcast! Ruth was an amazing guest on the Newcastle Accelerator Podcast and she supplied her amazing coffee for Mick to quaff. They chatted about love, passion, fairness, community, sports cars and obviously start-up life - the trials and tribulations, plus we find out Ruths dreams, desires and goals. Coffee & Kin will be one the most loved coffee brands in the UK and the world.

PRODUCT PROTOTYPING

The design of the Drifter was altered to produce Prototype 22 design. Prototype 22 design was designed around a size 9 (to suit Amanda), the tread pattern was reversed to protrude as the final design will be and the straps were altered so that they were only fixed 1 side and loose the other side – to allow easier assembly. From prototype 22 design a mould design for the sole layer was created and then was 3D printed. 

  During the process of re-design and mould creation we had discussions with Braskem, an EVA manufacturer, during which it was decided that the construction of the Drifter would be altered. Originally the Drifter was to have a natural rubber sole layer, an EVA second layer, a natural rubber third layer and a natural cork top layer. After the discussions with Braskem the base layer is to be constructed using a natural rubber/EVA mix for the sole layer, the second layer will be EVA, the third layer will be a natural rubber/EVA mix and the top layer will remain cork.
