What Is Design Unscripted?
Over 25 artists from Ringling College of Art and Design (students and alumni) have collaborated their imagination and talent in order to bring you a 100 page, softcover edition of Design Unscripted! The book’s aim is to help launch the careers of aspiring Visual Development Artists by showcasing their work alongside Ringling alumni who have become seasoned professionals. This art-book will give you access into the creative process and contains original ideas for many never before seen character and prop designs as well as environments, vehicles, storyboards and color-scripts from these emerging artists! There will only be one print run of this book…this is a rare opportunity to not only invest in the careers of these up-and-coming artists, but also to get a limited edition copy of this book.
We have streamlined this re-launched Design Unscripted campaign in order to bring you the highest quality product at a reasonably priced rate. This is a passion project for the majority of the artists involved, with many of the artists involved in the re-launch donating their time and artwork in order to help keep the cost of this art-book as low as possible. By backing this project you are making it possible for an emerging artist to gain the exposure they need to pursue their dreams! Thanks for your help!
The Digital copies of the Design Unscripted book will also feature some animatics that have never been seen before! Click play below to watch one of them!

Risks and challenges
When this project has been successfully funded, the art will be handed off to the designers at Vectorgenius.com in order to be laid out and printed. I have worked with the printers that we are using before and they deliver quality products. I've spoken with friends that have run successful campaigns and I feel I've taken precautions to reduce issues that may arise. If this campaign reaches the $29,000 stretch goal and the softcovers are all upgraded to hardcover editions this may effect the estimated delivery date by a few weeks.
We expect the layout/printing process for this project to take 3 ½ months from the end of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Thank you in advance for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
