Best in Show: Project Update
Share this post
There’s nothing more satisfying than watching your reward being assembled right in front of your eyes, especially when it’s done by hand by the creators themselves — and time-lapsed! Dan Provost and Thomas Gerhardt launched their project Glif, a clever tripod mount and stand for the iPhone 4, hoping to raise $10,000 to bring their simple, elegant design to life. They ended up becoming the first design project to shoot into the six-figure range, raising over $135,000 from more than 5,000 backers, and they did everything right along the way. They posted a slew of fantastic status updates, chock full of images and videos about the design process, and Update #12’s video of the two designers assembling thousands of Glifs by hand amassed pages worth of enthusiastic comments from backers.See more Kickstarter awards here.
