About Us


We are here for our designers


Avoid expensive mistakes

Creating something new is a tough business. At Interconnected, we show up every day for our designer clients because we are tired of watching brilliant ideas and product lines fail because they’ve skipped essential steps or didn’t know what they needed to do.


Reduce sampling costs

Many designers jump straight into sample-making, without the due diligence of first creating professional sketch sheets, spec sheets, or pattern pieces. They then find that they were spending great amounts of unnecessary money on re-doing samples over and over again.


Increase speed to market

Be it men’s underwear, baby blankets, winter coats, or big-bow hairbands, these designs have a go through a specific process to get them ready for large-scale production. Whether you are manufacturing locally in Australia or offshore at a factory, the importance of this process doesn’t change. Our expert team will get you there faster and better.

Our Story

Interconnected was founded by Naomi Sipus to help designers produce and launch their brands from a technical perspective. Our team comprises of a carefully-selected group of experts in their own areas, who share the same vision and who possess the same fierce and honest passion for the industry.

We are about the team, relationships, and integrity. We would never ask our designer clients to go against their creative styles, and similarly won’t compromise on the necessary steps that are required to make their concepts 100% production ready.

We ask all our designer clients to embrace each and every step of the journey, from concept to production, without taking shortcuts. When that design journey is complete, it is our promise that everything prepared can be taken to any reputable manufacturer, whether in Australia or overseas, for mass production and fulfillment with minimal fuss and errors.
