Favorite Kick Starter Projects
August 21, 2010 § Leave a comment
Kick Starter is a relatively new way to raise funds for projects. To use there own words:
We’re a great way for artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers, writers, illustrators, explorers, curators, promoters, performers, and others to bring their projects and ambitions to life.
There rules are pretty simple. Submit a creative project, encourage patronage with fun prizes, funding is all or nothing, you can receive funding over your goal, and the folks at Kick Starter keep 5%. Pretty simple right?
I’ve just been accepted to do a Kick Starter project and thought I would take a quick look at some successful projects.
Here are four of my recent favorites:
Katie Armstrong is so cute. I want her to go to Germany, I want to hear more of her songs and I want to see more animations! Her project was a success so I’m sure it will happen sooner than later. Her prize incentives for donating are simple yet creative and unique in her style (examples include a zine/poster, buttons, t-shirt, etc)
This project is really engaging because of it’s unique perspective of a some what anxiety inducing topic. Tom Henderson has a great sense of humor leading me to believe his book would be incredibly funny – and I just might learn something!
Phyllis Green has some really interesting and engaging art work. Her cause is a worthy one – she wants to document her retrospective show which features 25 of years of artwork. I love seeing Phyllis’s studio and her collection of catalogs!
There are tons of innovative, unusual and amazing projects on Kick Starter – a lot more than I have time or room to blog about! These projects give me some excellent insight into how to create an excellent Kick Starter project.
