Bongalong: The brand for Legalisation…
we sell and make products focussed on giving the user the best value for money and an exceptional experience.
On the 29th of August 2013, Bongalong™ was born – registered and trademarked. During this time I was finishing off a 3 year course in Industrial Design. From what I learned about how corporations use specific tools to get what they want, I realised that I could use these same techniques to try and do some good in the world. I also realised that using my skills to boost myself and my own ego would never lead to real happiness. I decided to apply my skills to do stuff that would benefit others.
I wanted to design a bong that smokes like a dream, looks like it belongs in a french wine botique and supports socially sound and sustainable practices. Of course there were quite a few things to do: Designing of graphics and a website, product development and implementation, packaging, strategising and all sorts of really corporate things… Eventually, Bongalong produced the “Naughty Vase”. Finally sales began, with the money made from this first designer item I could grow the company
