Daum Kakao acquires Tangram Design Lab - Tangram Factory and Smart Rope remain independent

Dear backers,

In the coming days, you may come across the announcement that Daum Kakao, one of the world's leading mobile platform companies, has acquired Tangram Design Lab. 

Tangram is comprised of two companies. Tangram Design Lab is a UX design agency, providing concept and design consulting work for clients. Tangram Factory is an Internet of Things company, and the creator of Smart Rope and other Tangram branded products. 

With the acquisition, Tangram Design Lab becomes a part of the Daum Kakao portfolio. Tangram Factory remains independent, and this announcement will not impact the development and production of Smart Rope in any way. It simply means that we have the support of Daum Kakao behind us.

We are very excited to partner with one of the world's foremost platform companies - best known for Kakao Talk, a true pioneer in mobile messaging, and the entire ecosystem of Daum Kakao services and products. Kakao Talk has an incredible 97% penetration rate in Korea, one of the most advanced mobile markets in the world. This is a perfect union of product and platform, and we look forward to sharing all of the exciting work to come. Thank you!
