Magic Fish Sticker Designs

I have had so much fun developing some stickers for the kickstarter of Magic Fish Dreaming.  Above is a small selection.

Recently I purchased a set of scales and am now busy weighing everything to calculate the postage costs for each reward set.  Here is Ms Kookaburra, otherwise known as Hilary, having her weigh in.

To learn more about what a kickstarter is, I recommend this post  on Crowd F2015-12-10 005unding on KidLit.

Crowd Funding is not about charity.  It is about supporting a project you truly want to see happen and receive the benefits from.

I have supported 7 crowd funded projects.  One more recent one was a  documentary on Maya Angelou about to be shown at Sundance Festival, another an album still in production which I just cannot wait to listen to, and a few are children’s books.

I have supported a scholarship scheme for writers from regional and disadvantaged backgrounds and a daughter’s friend who was making a movie, video and exhibition.

I have so enjoyed the products of these projects.  I check out the project’s background, staff, and crew before pledging as well as looking at the value of the reward and track record of the production team.  So far so good, with three projects with outcomes still to come, clearly outlining when I should receive the product and all others successfully received.

What has been your experience with crowd funded projects?  

What sort of projects do you like to support?

All the best,

June
