Pixel Font Illustrations purely created from letters. Where the final product is composed of you the supporter!

Hello Kickstarter, my name is Richard Kamimura, creator and designer of Pixel Font. This line of art is fully composed, utilizing font in their various states. In designing these illustrations, I wanted to represent each font family with a specific texture, giving life to the art. Fonts are used within my illustrations to represent shape, form, positive and negative space. These are concepts used everyday in my profession as a designer. I hope you enjoy my designs.

STORY AND VISION

My project is a representation of characters using descriptors in conjunction with font placement. Every descriptor is unique to the individual character being represented within the illustration. I wanted to tell a story within each art piece, hopefully connecting with you, the supporter. If I get a positive response from this project, I plan to produce more illustrations in the future. Hopefully this will allow me to tell more stories of characters that my supporters can relate to. Come, be part of Pixelfont and show your support.

YOU ARE THE ART!

Each Illustration will include you the supporter. That's right, you the supporter, will be included within the final designed piece.  Supporters in the appropriate backing levels will be placed in the background of my illustration. I wanted to celebrate all my amazing supporters by making you part of final product. My pledge system is split into various levels, allowing supporters to back the project in different ways. Level one (backers name in 9 point font placed in background with other supporters in same category ), Level Two (backer name in 18 point font placed in background with other supporters in same category). Supporters will have to choose which design they want to be part of. I will also include higher pledges that allow supporters to be part of all three designs. Illustrations will cover the majority of the T-Shirt frontage, plenty of room to transform supporter names into art.

All T-Shirts will be printed on high quality tees,using silk screening techniques, produced here in Los Angeles.

Prints All designs will also be offered in 11x17 card stock, on high quality prints. If my goal is exceeded I might consider producing 18x24 posters.

Acrylic I will also be offering my designs on 11x17 special edition Acrylic pieces. All quantities will be limited to 200 per design. Each design will be numbered and signed. Acrylic media is perfect for a light box shadowing effect.

If my goal is exceeded I will be offering great stretch rewards. I can't do this without you, so if you feel connected with my vision, please help Pixel Font by pledging and sharing our Kickstarter project with friends and family.

Every donation gets me that much closer to achieving my dream in creating a design line. Please spread the word! Your support means the world to me!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

My project is composed of a few layers. These layers include completing of artwork, producing product and shipping. I foresee possible challenges in a few areas. My first challenge will be getting the product out on time. Although I have the artwork completed I'm relying on various parties to produce my product. I have already lined up printers and material sources, but may experience a bottle neck if volume increases. I feel confident that I can get my product out since I have already streamlined the process.
