A Project for creative minds, and for Earth

Light bulb is one of the most important invention in human history, therefore bears many historical meanings. You can see light bulb symbols all the time as energy saving logo, environmental protection logo, green Earth logo, etc.  But nothing comes more vivid than actual light bulb. 

So we decided to make a piece of art using common light bulb. Our artistic inspiration came from the works of another most creative minds of 20th century, Jackson Pollock. So we named our product: E.P.Light, in honor of Mr.Thomas Edison and Jackson Pollock.

We are showing some of the works of Jackson Pollock here only for art history reference purpose

 E.P.Light is a ambient light made from light bulbs with environmental-friendly injection inside. Sounds pretty simple right? But the art comes in, when the paint and colorful fluid get mixed inside as the stuffing. Once the solidification complete, one beautiful moment will be captured, forever, as a piece of art.

  • Symbol for energy saving: As the most influential invention in the second wave of industrial revolution, light bulb is one the most common used as symbol for all sorts of energy saving logos. And no logo comes more vivid than an actual beautiful light bulb. 
  • The idea is simple: If you back this project, you will find a green Earth theme gift card in your package. And when you give out E.P.Light as a gift, you are also spreading the idea of energy saving. We are sure that your loved ones will have a much deeper impression of green Earth .

Production Plan

  • Gathering order info: For two weeks, we shall wait for backers to answer their survey. Please note that backers are always change their address for our survey, however do shoot us an message when you about to do so. And do let us know ahead of time if you are moving. Kickstarter can be a long march :( 
  • Confirm order and buy materials: For this step we shall start calculating the material we need and start ordering them. 
  • Manufacturing: We shall work with our contractors and start making products. Tell from experience that timing could be on and off for this stage, you never know. But even if you are off the schedule, please understand that we are only trying to make sure the products are of good quality. 
  • Packaging: Packaging can be quite challenging as well, since we have backers from all over the world. Have to be careful. :) 
  • Shipping: Please note that our estimated delivering date is the shipping date, not arriving date. Shipping time could be quite different depends on the locations of each backer.

Risks and challenges

1. On timing:
Since the exact number of backers is unknown to us, so the timing may fall out of schedule a little. But we did leave ourselves with extra time already, and we will try to get ahead of time for each step, so don't worry. :)

2. On shipping:
Shipping is another potential problem as well. Should the shipping take way too long than regular time, we will assume the package is lost and resend the reward. Promises promises :)

3. On refund:
We will arrange refund, if it is strongly insisted. There is no point in keeping the money from backers if they don't have our back any more. We will do our best to meet backers' anticipation as we should, and hope the worst won't happen.
