One Week, Four Themes, Endless Possibilities

Share this post

It doesn’t have to take ages to get your next great idea off the ground. This month, we’re showcasing Kickstarter projects that kick a creative idea into gear in one quick week — and you still have just shy of three weeks to get your own All in 1 project going. Head right over here to learn more.

Need some inspiration to get your ideas flowing? Take a spin through some of the latest live All in 1 projects below — each uses one of our four All in 1 project themes, designed with speed and simplicity in mind.

1-Hit Wonder – Offer a single reward tier

Projects don’t need to offer a ton of rewards to captivate backers. These 1-Hit Wonders have just one reward tier to keep things as simple as possible.

You could make indigo ink prints to help fund your artist residency, create reusable dry-erase gaming tiles for RPG enthusiasts, or print an adorable coloring book about a hamster chef. Or you could illustrate an animal-themed tarot deck, write a chapbook of slightly steamy historical fiction, or jar that homemade raspberry jam your grandmother taught you to make.

Indigo watercolors and mini-prints, available as part of Alex Hubbell's week-long campaign.

1s and 0s – Go binary: offer digital rewards only

To keep your project extra simple — and eliminate the need for shipping! — offer rewards that can be delivered to backers online.

You could release digital photo dispatches from every organic farm west of the Mississippi, make low-poly models of dinosaurs for at-home 3D printing, or a offer a printable expansion book for your next sci-fi RPG campaign. You could also put together a digital mixtape for someone you’ve never met, publish your short stories as an e-book, or start an alien murder mystery podcast that takes place in the New Mexico desert.

1 Night Only – Create a one-time event or experience

Are you a musician, performer, or amazing dinner party host? Launch a quick one-week project that puts your talents center stage, either through an IRL experience or via Kickstarter Live.

A few 1-Night-Only ideas, inspired by live projects: stream a backers-only performance to get your new album going, or stage a one-night-only horror-comedy that takes place in a Halloween store. You could also throw a homemade pizza party, host a queer film festival in your community, or kick off your DJ career with an exclusive late-night set.

Musician Chris Wonderful will perform live, just for his backers.

1st-Time Creator – Never run a project before? Now’s the time

You’ve been thinking about launching a project for months or even years. Why wait any longer? Let All in 1 be the kick in the pants you need to jumpstart the creative undertaking you’ve been putting off.

As a first-time creator, you can make just about anything, as long as you follow our rules. Some ideas: one first-time creator is making a rescue kit to help save the endangered monarch butterfly, and this one is making metal coins to transport you to another time. Another first-timer is making astronomical instruments to measure celestial bodies. So go ahead and turn your home-grown jalapeños into hot sauce, sew sweet rainbow-colored unicorn plushies for kiddos, or start a letter-writing exchange.

Measure celestial bodies with these laser-cut astrolabes from a first-time creator.
