On Tuesday, Kickstarter announced the launch of Make 100, a creative initiative focused on editions of 100. The crowdfunding platform stated as 2017 kicks off, it is challenging campaign organizers to bring their brightest idea to life, times 100.
“Being part of Make 100 is simple: launch a Kickstarter project this January featuring a limited-edition reward capped at 100 backers. You could make a run of 100 zines, or release 100 tickets to a performance — as long as your project follows Kickstarter’s rules, the possibilities are 100% endless. And while you don’t need to make it all the way to 100 backers to be a successful part of Make 100, you do need to reach your funding goal, so be sure to make a plan before you share your limited-edition project with the world.”
Kickstarter then listed the following campaigns involved in the initiative:
- Hope Nicholson and the Prairie Comics Festival are making 100 zines, which features creators from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, Canada.
- Dave and Calvin Laituri’s 100 spinning tops, which is designed to make everyday decision-making more fun.
- Sean Bonner’s 100 photobooks of his street photography from Japanese cities, Tokyo and Shibuya.
- Thomas Negovan’s 100 print featuring a rare, mystical work by Alphonse Mucha.
- Mike Ambs’ 100 LPs of the 52-hertz whale’s lonely song on vinyl.
- Shing Yin Khor’s 100 divination boards featuring a space-influenced fortune-telling system.
- Spike C. Trotman’s 100 enamel pins of the burlesque dancer mascot for Iron Circus Comics’ most successful line of books.
Kickstarter noted that throughout the month of January its staff is looking for projects from many more artists. It then added:
“Whether you thrive under creative constraints, or you’ve been waiting for a sign from the universe to finally start a project, consider this your nudge to get creating. We’ll be celebrating Make 100 projects on Kickstarter.com, on Happening, in our newsletters, and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all month long.”
