Entrepreneur launches his novelty USB sticks

Have your say

An entrepreneur has launched a business venture with a difference - selling ‘cool and unusual’ novely USB sticks which he hopes will help to ‘make work fun again.’

And retailer Konstantinos Diamantidis hasn’t just stopped there.

The 31-year-old is selling a whole host of creative items - including various works of digital art, paintings and pottery - under the name Artestik, as part of his new venture, at Vicar Lane Shopping Centre in Chesterfield.

Much of the art is produced by his step-father, along with local artist Michael Sharpe, whose works are all completely unique.

Konstantinos said: “I think these novelty USB sticks will make schools and businesses a far more cheerful place and help to try and put some of the fun back into work.”

Creative Konstantinos - who has worked in a variety of occupations all over the world - told The Star he had spent time researching the market, and the products, thoroughly and believes he has found something different to offer Chesterfield shoppers. He has already begun selling the items from a retail unit between BHS and Morrisons on Vicar Lane - and business is good.

Larger works of art are also available to be viewed on a computer screen at the unit and artist Michael is also keen to take commissions.

Amanda Thomas, a spokeswoman for Vicar Lane Shopping Centre, told The Star: “With his endless enthusiasm and energy, you just know Konstantinos is going to make a success of his new venture and we wish him all the very best.”
