About this project
Just over a month ago, I received an email from a Norwegian girl who had seen my work as a journalist. She urged me to check out this TV show that was responsible for kids skipping school, starting petitions and losing sleep. That show was Skam.
I quickly became obsessed, joining fan groups on Facebook and telling anyone who would listen – including my best friend and graphic designer James Knipe – about this incredible TV show that dealt with issues of homophobia, Islamophobia, slut-shaming, sexual harassment, anxiety, mental health, eating disorders, and issues that teens face everywhere. In fact, I was one of the first international journalists to write about the show (you can read the piece here).
James and I were so inspired by the fandom that we wanted to give back by contributing something both meaningful and fun. We decided to wear our enthusiasm on our sleeves by creating soft enamel lapel pins of our favourite characters and moments from Skam.
By wearing this unofficial merchandise, you’re helping to spread the word about this show. (We guarantee you'll hear, "Hey! What does your pin say?") The fandom is so amazing and was the main inspiration behind these designs. To bring them to life, however, we need your help.
By donating to this Kickstarter, you’re simply purchasing a pin. Donations cover the cost of manufacturing the pins and helping set up a website we can hopefully populate with even more characters, phrases and themes from our favourite show as it continues to find new fans in the coming season.
PLEASE NOTE: If we reach our funding goal before the donation period has ended, that doesn't mean we are out of stock. There are still more pins available and we will be fulfilling all orders placed!
Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter. In producing these pins, we are up against the manufacturing and production costs, which is why we need your help!
Although we have experience working with manufacturers, there could be unforeseen delays in manufacturing or shipping. We will maintain communication with our backers to ensure a successful project for everyone.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
