With the emergence of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency’s growing popularity in recent years, the digital assets ecosystem has redefined the dynamic notion of trading, purchasing, and reselling art.
Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have sprung to the frontline as a hot topic, ushering in a new era of web and internet evolution. As the NFT revolution continues, utility has emerged as the primary motivator among NFT enthusiasts. From staking and redeemability to ticketing, buyers are increasingly motivated by the additional value propositions of NFT collections.
NFT Design Works is a digital collectibles creator and curator, striving to produce unique NFTs of inimitable utility coupled with exquisite value, that piques the interest of enthusiasts from around the globe.
What is NFT Design Works?
NFT Design Works strives to find solutions that enable artists, athletes & rights holders to ideate, mint, promote, and trade NFTs. Co-founded by veteran cricketer, Daniel Vettori, the agency works with artists, musicians, athletes, and sports organizations to produce unique NFTs that resonate with their client’s communities and fans.
The platform also manages image rights issues in relation to the NFTs produced. They work tirelessly to develop and implement sales and marketing strategies for NFTs to make them more accessible to the masses thus widening the horizon of NFT marketplaces.

The agency is creating a global sports community through the PFP space by connecting sports lovers via its founders’ network and collaborating with leading sportspeople and organizations from different spheres of sports. The community will benefit from the ‘hive mind’ or ‘wisdom of crowds’ which will enhance members’ knowledge and their global network, as well as prizes – tickets, meet-ups, parties & meeting their heroes.
