MC, or “Mass Customization” - what is this all about and why might it matter to me?
Basically it is the use of a flexible production method or systems that support custom output. As a creative producer you might have a certain idea about the way your product or service should function or look like. What if a potential client likes your service or product in general, but needs it tailored to his or her needs in order to make use of it? Many creative businesses could increase their sales (and thus get out more of what they do) if they just knew how to adapt their production methods to different markets and clients.
Get More out of what you Do - Mass Customization for Makers
The MC for Makers workshop aims to help people in different fields of practice explore how they to get more out of what they do as a creative producer and how they can meet their client’s diverse and changing needs. If you want to explore how you as a creative can get more out of resources, technology, materials or changing paradigms you are most welcome. The goal of the Mass Customization for Makers Worskshop is to help you figure out how to profit from peer-production models that promise to give actual control over consumption back to the consumers.
