OUR MISSION

Modern Material is designed to change the way we think, create, curate, make, market and monetize our material. We are recruiting an army of artists, designers, influencers and brands to experiment with a collaborative coMMerce coMMunity that will allow for the free exchange of goods and services in exchange for a coMMission.

Our member supported platform provides independent business owners the opportunity to sell their products direct-to-consumer, share global influence among fans and followers, and create merchandising and marketing strategies to provide consumers with a convenient, daily destination to shop, socialize and share the latest material.

HOW MM WORKS

We are a MMbers Only coMMunity that will allow talent and influence to share revenue through our collaborative coMMission platform. Two or more parties will be able to program compensation rates into a shared platform for their boutique shops. Payments will be issued for services and sales after customer purchases on Modern Material.

All MMbers will be able to run their own online shops, recruit new members and curate products from current MMbers for their co.{LAB} shops. MMbers will earn revenue from the sales of their own merchandise, royalties for licensing intellectual property, or coMMission from cross-promotion of material from MMbers. Modern Material will require a quarterly membership fee for approved members and a small sales commission from each product sold.

We are accepting applications for MEMBERSHIPS now. All content on our website is for mock purposes only. Each member will be able to sell up to 50 items in their boutique and curate up to 25 products from other members to earn coMMission. All items listed on Modern Material must be approved.

The deadline to apply for our Spring 2019 Co.{LAB} Boutiques is December 31, 2018. Our portal for LICENSED ARTWORK is expected to open this spring.

INFLUENCER Co.{LABS}

Pop Rox has a fun, vibrant aesthetic with pop colors and cultural references to the 80’s. We love the playful pictures and playlists loaded with electronic pop music. If you’re ever in a bad mood just remind yourself that tomorrow can be taken a little less seriously.
