Given a choice in the process of designing and manufacturing products for the gift market, Simon Fallows and Jeff MacIntyre, founding partners of Grappleworks™, choose to take an innovative approach with their product design & marketing strategy.


First, rather than rebrand and re-market low-cost merchandise, Grappleworks™ chose to collaborate with internationally-awarded industrial designer, Joseph Hofer. The goal being to create modern updates to everyday classics, which started with a screwdriver intended to maintain the modern home. Affirmation came after receiving the first of many International Design Awards, but adding another product in a World saturated with new products was not enough.



When someone we care for has cancer it can be difficult to know what to say, let alone what to give them during this time. The Screw Cancer™ Brand of products has become a new and engaging way for people affected by cancer to find a unique and useful gift. A new category of cancer Gifts that give back combining the good feelings of gift-giving and charitable giving together.


Everyone has been touched by cancer in one form or another. Though the term “Screw Cancer” may be offensive to some, many people need the freedom to express their feelings of frustration, relief or loss. Cancer is hard, our goal is to provide a customer experience that makes purchasing the right gift easy after discovering the Screw Cancer brand of gifts in a Retail Store.
