Collection of essays, photographs, designs, and illustrations detailing the lives and opinions of young, creatively driven individuals.
We all came together to start this project because we feel that there is currently a need for a platform tailored towards young creative individuals who are currently growing up within a time of great economic hardship and doubt. Yet at the same time, there has never been a better moment for creative self-expression and accessibility to the resources needed to make things and grow ideas. We hope to demonstrate this by making a printed booklet documenting our experiences.
The stories of what it is like to balance between growing up to find a means of surviving as a contributing member of society while nurturing personal creative goals are narratives that do not get told enough. Young creative individuals oftentimes face crossroads and Blink is about letting these journeys come into the public consciousness.

What Our Goals Are:
We want to become a successfully funded project that provides a unique perspective within a society that oftentimes does not hear the voices of young creative individuals outside of the realm of pixels and computers. We all want to work collaboratively to contribute to a project that fills a void within the world of tangible print publications.
Where the Money Will Go:
The $3,500 dollars will fund production, digital needs, printing costs, and postage. We will print enough publications to ensure that nobody goes without a copy. If we exceed our expectations this will allow us to increase the quality of the final printed collateral. More colors, better paper, and more stories!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest challenge facing this project is funding. We are all prepared to deliver the best content possible, but do not have the financial means to share it with the rest of you all.
The foundation and infrastructure for this project is already in place. We are all ready to overcome challenges that will come up as we begin to work through the creative process of content development.
Every single member of the team is excited and passionate about getting a platform to share their perspective and with the proper funding, the project will be great.
