I haven’t blogged in so long, I don’t even know where to begin! I’m launching a new project on Kickstarter and here’s the Press Release:
Paying Tribute to Hong Kong’s Markets with Graphic Design
A unique poster series celebrates the disappearing street markets of Hong Kong
A unique poster series celebrates the street markets of Hong Kong and seeks crowdfund contributions with Kickstarter. The project titled “Hong Kong Markets: a poster series celebrates local culture” is the creation of Hong Kong-based independent designer, Tiffany Wan. Inspired by her love for travel, and living in Hong Kong, she celebrates the local street markets through graphic design.
Tiffany Wan is launching a series of three posters on Kickstarter to crowdfund pledges and produce production prints. With successful funding, the posters will be sold online. She will launch a web-based storefront, WanderlabDesigns. “I love travel and have always enjoyed sharing overseas experiences,” she says, “I’ve been living in Hong Kong for over four years, and the quick change in this city is hard to ignore. The street markets are no exception. The posters I’ve designed celebrate the fading markets in Hong Kong and allows others to bring a piece of this amazing city home with them.”
The posters will be the first products to launch with WanderlabDesigns. She elaborates on her venture, “With this web-store, I will bring ‘designs from the world to your home’. And develop more products to celebrate experiences from travel, as well as cultures from around the world.”
Based in Hong Kong and originally from the US (Quincy, MA), Tiffany Wan explains why she chose to use Kickstarter, “It’s a great platform to build a community and raise awareness to support passion driven projects.” To bring the poster series to life, she seeks crowdfunding through Kickstarter.com to accomplish the first production prints. Rewards start at USD $5 and a single poster is USD $28. Her campaign runs until the end of October, and if successful, reward posters will be shipped to backers by early December 2015. The aim is for supporters to receive rewards in time for the holidays. You can bring the posters to production and contribute to the launch of WanderlabDesigns by pledging as little as USD $1 to celebrate Hong Kong’s markets.
