Getting Stuff Out of Your Head and into the World - 2nd edition
A zine about designing & independently launching small batch products using Kickstarter.
It’s a great time to be an independent designer—the ability to make things and get them in front of the people who want them gets easier every day. New tools and shared workspaces make prototyping in your kitchen a thing of the past. Easier access to manufacturing has allowed smaller runs to be produced affordably and locally. Kickstarter's storytelling tools, fundraising platform, and supportive community makes it easier than ever to bring ideas to life!
The challenge now is, what should I make? And what’s the right way to get it out of my head and into the world?
The content in this zine is distilled from the class I created and taught for 3 years at the industrial design school at UIC—as well as the 8+ campaigns I have run myself.
