About

NOTHING LIKE IT
I love the old world charm and majesty of mounted big game heads on the wall. But, they are hard to transport, don’t match modern home decor and most importantly, we don’t want to sacrifice a majestic animal. Here is our solution, the “Clear Deer”.

We bring the mounted trophy head into the 21st century and want to share our love of design with you. This is a flat-packed acrylic deer head. We thought ‘Hey - what if the rustic old world classic charm of the deer head, could be re-interpreted for a modern home or office,’ Turning nature into art that can be at home in even the most prestigious spaces.

We have gone through more iterations here than we would like to admit, strengthening joints to withstand travel, cutting edges more precisely for perfect fits, creating new ways to manage the weight, making sure we could flatpack ship it… all the old cad and design prototypes are filling up my hard drive but finally we have the final deer head prototype that we are very proud of, ready for production and I am sure you will be proud to hang this in your home or office.

HOW IT WORKS

Putting it together is simple, and takes just a minute or so: People may ask, 'well, what do you need funding for?' Well, while we have done all the work to ready the prototype, our $7,500AUD funding goal will go towards purchasing the materials and scaling up so that we can engage our factory to reach the Minimum Order Requirement (MOQ), allowing us to retain a price reasonable for all.

Now, we understand that not all people are able to manage a deer head of this awesome nature, perhaps you want something smaller, or to just contribute in another way: as a stretch goal, we have got a smaller version that will unlock if there is interest, and also an amazing acrylic paperweight with a geometric deer design for your desk or office. (Shown in the image below.)

With your support, we can bring the clear deer to market, we thank you from the bottom of our acrylic hearts.

WHO WE ARE

Working in the manufacturing space has been a side project of mine for many years. Whilst doing web development as a 9-5, I have indulged my passion for 'making things' at every chance I can get. In the same genre, my team and I have been making and selling acrylic cake stands, boxes and the like on a small scale for quite some time- so I understand the material, shipping and selling side of this business. I know that my skills there can translate well to this new original 'Clear Deer' and give joy to the people who purchase one, in the way we get joy from creating them!

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk and challenge is shipping. We want to make sure we are building our products are in a volume that will allow us to get the pricing we need on good quality shipping boxes and foam, so our products get to you in great shape.
I have had experience in manufacturing in my positions in other companies, in both China and Indonesia so we expect to be able to manage our process correctly.
