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 120 page, hardcover 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. 

Because many of the artists involved in this project are Ringling College students that are just starting to pursue their career goals.  Profits from this project will be used to send the Design Unscripted contributing artists to conventions and conferences were they can make the industry contacts they need in order to jumpstart their careers. 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!

Risks and challenges

Although much of the artwork for this book has already been produced, the artists will continue to generate work until the project has been successfully funded.
The artists featured in this book have teamed up with Arttuts.net, Vectorgenius.com and abrandaid.com in order to bring you a professional packaged product. Once this project has been successfully funded, the art will be given to the designers at Vectorgenius.com to be laid out and printed. Vectorgenius.com will be in charge of shipping out this art-book and the prizes. 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!
