What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Thousands of backers have already shown their love for Westwood Sunglasses by supporting our vision of creating unique stylish sunglasses just for you. Now, in keeping with our commitment to you that every signature collection would be released first through crowd-funding, we’d like to introduce the Urban Collection.  

The Urban Collection features six new frames inspired by your city; the beautiful textures and colors created over time with nature. Designed with color and style in mind, this line utilizes distressed wood and brushed titanium.

Timeline

The graphic below gives you an overview of what to expect once the campaign ends. We will do our best to stick with these estimates and this timeline may vary. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is our 5th crowd-funded campaign and our 4th on Kickstarter, having successfully completed our Classic Collection, Tribal Collection, Timbermine Collection and Timbermine 2.0. With each campaign we continue to strive for better performance. We've found some typical challenges associated with production, shipping or customs delays.

We are deep into the production and development process for this line and we are confident in our current timeline. The estimated delivery date is April 2018, but keep in mind this is only an estimate. We believe this is a realistic timeline based on the stylistic differences and manufacturing requirements of this line. Additionally, we have learned from our past campaigns and we have implemented effective methods and processes to address shipping and customs delays.

Another part of addressing these challenges is up to you. Please read through the FAQs - we will be adding to them as the campaign goes on. Additionally, please be sure to respond to the email when the post campaign survey goes out.
