How do you create a successful product — without wasting time you don’t have?

Carson Ting is an award-winning studio owner and has been named one of Canada’s top 30 illustrators by the Canadian Design Resource.

He has produced work for brands like Nike, NBA, and Snoop Dogg. 

But after decades in client services, he was hungry to create something of his own. He wanted to develop a product that could snowball into something more than any client project.

He had ideas…but he didn’t know where to start.

Then, Carson discovered a space where he could experiment — and Billion Buns was born.

Carson sold 888 collectibles on launch day, generating $318,202 in under one minute. 🤯

Developing a successful product is not reserved for some “special class” of creatives

On Apr 25, Carson will share the good, the bad, and the ugly stories from his journey with Billion Buns.
