What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The Story:

Hi! My name is Sejal. I'm an Interaction Designer and an aspiring Illustrator based in New York City. I have traveled many places with a blank journal, hoping to document the journey creatively that I can later show to my friends. More often than not, I have returned with empty journals or partially documented trips. It is not because I didn't have interesting stories to write or didn't have time to journal. It is simply due to my anxiety of blank pages, and not knowing how and where to start. I wished there was some tool that would help me document and preserve my memories in a way that I could cherish years later!

Documenting the way you travel and all the interesting experiences amidst that is a great way to revisit them or share them with your friends and family! Identifying this need, for myself and others like me, I created Outside the Bubble.

What is Outside the Bubble?

A journal designed for travelers to document their journey in a unique and creative way. It is also a tool that facilitates them while traveling. The journal has different layouts to preserve different kinds of memories, at the same time it is minimalistic enough for the travelers who sketch a lot, or prefer a blank journal. 

See what's the journal like:

 

 

 

Along with these six main sections, the journal also has a few cool things:

Thank you cards: I designed a page with a multiple tear off 'thank-you' cards that you can give to people you meet on the trip. It's an easy and subtle way to break ice for future conversations, or preserved as a souvenir. 

Guided section breakers: In the beginning of every section, along with the title and section, there are a few example ideas on how to document for that section effectively. It's personally sourced from travelers and their journals.

Back Interior Pocket: The journal also has back pocket to store your favorite items you collect on the trip.

Vision: Creating A Community For Travelers

We have a vision for this project that's bigger than a journal. We want to help travelers and aspiring travelers connect with each other via creative journaling and a medium to express experiences. And this journal is just a small step towards it. Please contribute in any way you can, or share with someone you know who loves traveling, and journaling, and want to connect with other travelers.

We will publish filled journals, and help backers stay connected with other members of the community. Watch this space for more details.

Thank you for your support! We're constantly looking out for ways in which we can better this vision and our step towards it. If you have any feedback/recommendations or simply say hi, you can write to us at: outsidethebubblejournal@gmail.com

Risks and challenges

We are anticipating a smooth project but there is always the potential for bumps along the road. These journals will be made with the best quality paper and other materials. We will keep backers updated as we move along the process. The timeline is probably the greatest challenge but we have a great team and an excellent manufacturer who will work hard to produce this product in a timely fashion.

Thank you!
