Creative projects on crowdfunding : turntable, luggage, camera and design history !

posted in Objects & shopping  at 4.47 PM from Mr Cup Studio / France listening REM New Adventure in Hi-Fi
In the past years, crowdfunding has become the best way to launch a project. After the success of my own Kickstarter for the Letterpress Calendar and the Walter magazine, I know how important it is to spread the word about a project! Here come 4 projects that I really like:
 

Wheel by Miniot

The record finally gets the turntable it deserves. Wheel is a record player that's just a wheel.

Ready: Stylish and Smart Carry-on Luggage

crowdfunding mrcup 03
 
One of the calendar wise word is "If everything has already been done, try doing it even better". Here it comes applied to a luggage ! Ready is a stylish and smart carry-on that makes your trip as convenient as possible. It has a Built-in Charger and Weight Scale. Made from aircraft grade aluminum and 100% polycarbonate.

HIbook mrcup 01
 
As a big fan of House industries I am more that happy to see the release of this big Inspiration book! Walter magazine readers may remind that volume one as an article about the VELO font and products... 
 
Here comes the pitch "Where do you find inspiration? It seems like a simple question, but like most things we do, we overthought it then overdesigned some 400 pages in an attempt to provide an answer. With topics ranging from fonts and fashion to ceramics and space technology, this beautifully-useful volume offers a personal perspective on the origin of ideas for creative people in any field. Presented in the honest, authentic, and often irreverent style that you’ve come to expect from House Industries, The Process is the Inspiration is a collection of helpful lessons, stories and case studies that demonstrate how you can transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work. If that’s not enough, there’s also plenty of over-intellectualized post-rationalization supported by hundreds of new images, our signature top-secret printing tricks, and thousands of Oxford commas. Most importantly, this book shows that there’s no sense in waiting for inspiration because inspiration is already waiting for you."

Dodecal by post

posted in Objects & shopping  at 1.34 PM from Alès / France listening U2 No line on the horizon
When I saw the Dodecal project on the-brandidentity, I wanted to share it right away. It is the perfect link with my own calendar project, the letterpress one with the wood cover ! The calendar is now funded on Kickstarter and I will detail soon what I could achieve with next goals. But for now, the great project by Post :
 
DodeCal is an innovative polyhedra calendar system, designed with mathematical precision and finished in high-quality European sycamore. Manufactured from sustainable materials, our production process supports British industry, mixing digital technology and traditional craftsmanship. A tactile, three-dimensional object that combines functionality and contemporary design, DodeCal makes a welcome addition to any home or workplace.
