Titan A Gentlemans Business Card Holder / Minimalist Wallet

$10,791

This is our second Kickstarter project, our first project the AERO Ti Chopsticks were successfully funded and we’re back to share this new project! We are now called LIOE Design because we want to feature our designer John Lioe. However, Eighty Eight Industry is where we started and to be sure to connect back to our roots. We’re still the same folks, we still believe in making products that stand out and hopefully makes people say "I never thought something can look like that", good or bad (preferably good), but in the end we still strive to inspire people to think differently.

This all started when we went in search for a cool business card holder because we were tired of our business cards getting wrinkled and messed up in our wallets. Well, that’s where we ran into trouble. We started with the usual internet searching hoping to find a good solution, except all we found were card holders that all looked the same. The usual clam shell shaped holder. So, we decided to make our own, why not? It seemed like business card holders could use some cool variations and options for people to choose from! Because we wanted not only a simple minimalist solution but one that was unique and easy on the eyes. The Titan Card Holder is aero-inspired combined with being minimalist, light-weight, and attractive.

 

This card holder went thought many ideations before we decided on the functionality and look of the holder. Titan can be opened with two hands or even just one hand. We wanted the card holder to have a simple mechanism that could help it open and close reliability without the use of hinges, so we decided to use magnets to close the two main moving parts together.

The pattern on the front of the card holder is reminisce of a futuristic space door and inspired by the nose of the B29 Super Fortress. Titan has a dark gunmetal gray color to give the holder a completely different look and feel than other card holders. Titan is made from aircraft grade 6061-T6 Aluminum and the surface is bead blasted then anodized for a gunmetal finish. Titan can hold 9 standard business card or 2 credit card plus one ID if you choose to use it as a minimalist wallet.

Risks and challenges

We have learned many lessons from our previous Kickstarter project AERO Ti Chopsticks and we will implement all the strategies to run the production process for the Titan in order to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

To help minimize risks we have waited until we have everything in place before putting The Titan on Kickstarter from many hours of prototypes and testing, to developing a trusting relationship with the our manufacturer. We feel we are now ready to move forward into production with your help! We are aware no matter how realistic we are with the planning for production there always can be issues that can happen however we are focused on quality control, making sure manufacturer produce the card holder at a highest level of quality. LIOE Design will work hard to make sure you get your rewards on time and hopefully if we are lucky ahead of time. We will always constantly keep you in the loop of what is happening during production.
