Yellowpop is about helping people create spaces that bring joy and are uniquely theirs. We can’t wait to keep working with incredible creative minds and create even more exciting products and collaborations in the years to come.” said Jeremy Cortial and Ruben Grigri, founders of Yellowpop, “We are thrilled that Eutopia shares our vision and we can’t wait to see what we will create together.”
Beyond the brand’s signature LED neon signs, Yellowpop plans to use the funding to expand and develop its product line into a holistic home decor brand, beginning with new partnerships featuring blue-chip artists and brick-and-mortar retail locations in cities like New York, Paris, and London. Yellowpop will also be adding over a dozen new roles to their team – many of which will focus on improving product quality and fostering more sustainable practices.
