Issue 3 Kickstarter: The first 24 hours

Posted by | Kickstarter, The Quarterly | No Comments

Well, what a difference a day makes. In less than 24 hours we’ve managed to raise 42% of our total funding goal on Kickstarter.

After weeks of planning, filming, editing, late-night emailing, and nervously biting our nails, to see such overwhelming support for issue 3 of The Quarterly right from the get-go really does make everything worth it. From the start, The Quarterly has been an experiment to try and do things differently to the mainstream publishing industry. (Continued below)

By it’s very nature, an experiment is the combination of a varying elements to see what works and what doesn’t work. As we’ve been shown time and time again, when something works it’s a bloody marvellous feeling, but when it doesn’t work it can be difficult to unruffle your feathers, shrug your shoulders and try again.

Right now however, our feathers have most certainly been unruffled and shall remain unruffled for some weeks to come.

Huge thanks to our first backers:

Andrew Knipe. Stephen Smith. Nathan Cleary. Stuart Moore. Chris Newberry. Damian Boys. Laura Carberry. Simon James Bell. Chris Jarvis. Vikki Ross. Rory Gullan. Kevin Exley. Jerome. Rich. Desiree Pfeiffer. Lea Fabing. Doug. Haileeyy. Matthew Lynch. Phil Ivens. Johan Ulburghs. Claire McAlpine. Simon Keane. Steve Calder. Tiffany ‘TJ’ Villiers. Liam Fay-Fright. Eva Powell. Lisa Curtis. Ben Peckett. Mark Massey. Mark Ivkovic. 

You guys are so damn juicy.

Keep an eye on The Creative Book blog, The Quarterly News Page our Twitter, and this news page to catch some unpublished snippets of the exclusive content we’ve got lined up for issue 3. Honestly, it’s going to be incredibly wild.

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!

Keep an eye on this blog, our Twitter, and The Creative Book blog for updates on how things are going and some other surprises we’ve got tucked up our sleeves.

See you in 30 days!
