No, this has absolutely nothing at all to do with paper. But then again we don’t know of any designer who hasn’t clicked away a small fortune on Fab.com. This FastCoDesign piece is an excellent examination of how its founders have built a hugely successful online empire, and just how precarious it all is.
Packed in this text-dense exploration (the usually stellar editorial team seems to have misplaced their paragraph button here) are some pretty startling stats, including this:
- 600 employees
- Selling in 29 countries
- Offices in Berlin, New York and India.
Some really compelling reading awaits those who can take a few minutes out of their busy day.
