“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.

Song Eng trained as an architect at the University of Cambridge, while he was in design school he noticed that there were not any quality portfolios available for carrying and displaying his work. He founded Newport Works- Studio Bag and Folio in an effort to create a modern and durable solution for carrying design or art work. The Studio Bag and Folio combination has a professional look. The bag and folio separate so that you can use the folio for presenting and displaying work, while still continuing to use the studio bag for every day.

The Studio Bag is made of durable fabric and is waterproof, I can carry it out into the rain without having to worry about my design work getting wet. It is equipped with tote style straps on the top and a strap on the side for support while carrying heavier items. The bag is built to last, is fully padded and lined, and has a robust twill exterior. It is large enough to fit multiple items that I need to carry around.

The Folio is meant to fit inside of The Studio Bag, it is very functional and has the perfect layout for my presentations. There is a pocket for the laptop, medium sketch pad, and other tools that I use. It has compartments for 50 sheets of paper, secondary pockets for  journals and also a slot to put my business cards. The Folio has two locking straps to keep it shut and secure. It fits nicely into The Studio Bag.

The Studio Bag and Folio have a professional look and they have given me confidence while I am working with clients or at an interview. I am happy with the quality of the bag and it’s ability to store and protect my work. It is comfortable to carry around and perfectly designed with my needs in mind. The bag and folio come in two different sizes and there are four color options black, grey, pink, and steel blue. You can find out more about The Studio & Folio Combo by visiting the links below.
