Our first week!
It has been a very hectic week over here! We just passed the 3% line which is great.
A bit of stats: 1273 people watched our pitch video, 440 people LIKEd it and many more TWEETed about EL Sajjadah (#elsajjadah is our hashtag by the way) so far.
We are working really hard to keep up with the international press interest. Press releases and high-res images have been sent. An interview has been scheduled for next week. So, expect some printed press and TV appearance soon ;)
Online press wise, we got big names talking about us:
'Astute readers (and design enthusiasts) might remember "EL Sajjadah" from MoMA's Talk to Me exhibition, where it was very well-received; Soner is pleased to announce that it's ready for production via Kickstarter.' Core77.com
'With nearly 1.6 billion Muslim’s in the world, most of whom take their religious practice very seriously, it is surprising that certain items have not been brought into the 21st century like many other aspect of their lives; the EL Sajjadah Prayer Mat endeavors to do just that.' TrendHunter.com
'Enter the Soner Ozenc Product Design Studio, which has crafted a prayer mat fit for the modern needs of any gadget-loving believer.' TheAtlanticCities.com
As mentioned before, we still got a long way to go. We hope you are enjoying the 'journey' as much as we do though! We are just LOVING it -with more sleepless nights to come...
Talk about EL Sajjadah on Facebook, Twitter and forward our short link kck.st/MExERL to anyone you think would be interested in EL Sajjadah.
Thank you all again for your wonderful support and have a nice weekend!
