Yep, the rumours are true. We’re doing another Kickstarter.

2013 was an amazing first year for us. During our last Kickstarter, we managed to create quite a social media storm and grab the attention of some huge industry websites – including mentions on Creative Review, Fubiz, Fvonf, Ilovethatphoto, Design Collector, and Design Good.
Everyone involved in producing issues 1 and 2 of The Quarterly has learnt a great deal about independent publishing along the way and we’ve all learnt from our mistakes more times than we can remember.
Most importantly, we’ve realised the key to our future success is taking a final leap of faith towards printing a lot more copies. By moving from digital printing to lithographic printing, we’ll have to invest more, but we’ll also bring the cost per issue down and be able to print thousands more copies – while ensuring our standards remain high and we don’t sacrifice on print quality whatsoever.
It’s a scary next step for us, but issue 1 and issue 2 were an experiment and now we finally think we’ve got what it takes to move into the realms of the big dogs.
On top of which, if this 30-day all-or-nothing round of crowdfunding is successful, we’ll create the budget we need to print issue 4 of The Quarterly and create a sustainable business model for all future issues of The Quarterly.
To make this happen, we need help to spread the word so please shout about it from the rooftops!
See you in 30 days!
