I have design ideas for dinnerware and shoes, how do I get from my idea on paper to actual product and to the store?
I'm not sure the next step. I feel like I need a prototype but I don't know how to actually make the product? Who makes prototypes? After that do I pitch the idea around, or should I just send my designs around hoping someone will like them, and if that is the case, how do I protect my ideas from being used by someone else? Any ideas/advice would be much appreciated!!
