I want to thank everyone who supported me … you made it possible the Berlin Boombox became a reality and now it's available at my online store and in shops all over the world.
It's been a while since this Kickstarter project started in April. The plan back then was to have the Berlin Boombox produced and on the market by june … how naive!
Being a graphic designer & illustrator I had no idea how much work it is to release a real product. I had been selling posters and screeenprints before but this was a whole different story.
I though that I had figured everything out by the time I started on Kickstarter. But I had not imagined what it needs to get it happening, it turned out the design part was by far the least work.
Technical problems kept popping up along the way, legal requirements had to be met, questions by Kickstarter backers had to be answered, logistics and quality control had to be set up, price calculations had to be revised, a website was launched, etc … all this with a staff of one!
I am happy that everything worked out, the first production run of the Berlin Boombox is on the market and all Kickstarter backers have received their rewards. Your support on Kickstarter was a tremendous encouragement and now I am lucky to get tons of positive feedback from people who tell me how they love their Boombox. I really appreciate your pictures and stories.
