Hub101 is so excited to announce the Apple App Store launch of of Blinks, the unique digital sticker store made possible by a community of artists. Blinks is an awesome alumnus of our startup incubator program, and we are excited to see the company making waves in the digital world!
The concept of Blinks is surprisingly simple: digital stickers you can use to customize your text messages to others. In fact, the concept is so simple that there are dozens of sticker packs available for Apple’s newly released iOS 10. However, what makes Blinks stand out from the rest is the sense of individuality to be found within its vast array of offerings. Each sticker pack is uniquely designed for the user, and tailored to each artist’s specific vision and style. Unlike other sticker packs, Blinks exclusive community of global artists is constantly creating new content to contribute to its ever-growing collection of bright, animated stickers. Artists Blinks has collaborated with in the past include Amy Hsieh, Sam Stadridge, and Emily Dumas. Blinks subscribers’ get unlimited access to thousands of stickers that can be applied to pictures and message bubbles to create something one-of- a-kind.
When asked how Hub101 helped Blinks turn its ideas into action, founder Ryan Nolan commented, “The incubator program gave me the confidence to pivot my business completely in the last week of the program. All the tips and advice from the mentors help me build and launch a app and business in less than 3 months.” Blinks has a hard working crew which puts in work both day and night to turn the startup idea into a startup reality that’s ready to take the world by storm.
We are especially proud of the way in which Blinks is able to cater to a growing market while also creating a platform for artists to share their art with the world. According to Blinks, the company goal is to cultivate a brand focused on the individual artists and what inspires them on a daily basis, while also guiding them in translating this artistic vision to the user.
