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.

About

When the world reminds you of such dystopian horrors as “Trump is 45th president of the United States” and other smash hit headlines like “Most of Earth’s sea life dying from plastic pollution”, sometimes all you want to do is bury your head in the sand and hope it all blows over.

Or, you can vent all that frustration and despair in a constructive and healthy way, such as kicking a ball really, really hard. Even better: A ball with a face on it.

So, why a football (or soccer ball to our pals in the States)? Let’s not forget that a good ball game brings people together - and gets those muscles working! Endorphins, too, are great for lifting you out of those world-weary moods.

Each golden football is graced with an original caricature by our illustrator, Jocasta Mann (who endeavoured to make it look as kickable as possible). In terms of quality, it’s the real deal - so feel free to put it at the centre of your professional game. Or, send it flying across your local park. It is, after all, #JustForKicks. 

GIFTS

Thinking of giving a ball as a gift? We expect our first batch to be ready by Spring 2019, so in the meantime, we'll supply you with a PDF certificate to send to your loved one as a promise of de-stressing fun to come!

You can back the project with however much you fancy. Or, you can donate enough to get your very own custom ball, in a colour of your choice, featuring a caricature illustrated to your specifications! It could be you, a loved one... anyone at all!


DISCLAIMER

- No refunds will be given in the event that Trump is impeached before the balls are delivered in May. Sorry.

Risks and challenges

Our creative little team has, between us, an extensive and colourful background in design, marketing and digital art. We’ve worked for big brands in the automotive, spirits, retail and construction industries, to name a few - and have produced our fair share of company merchandise/corporate gifts. Now we’re taking the plunge and venturing into entrepreneurship, which allows us finally to take on some of the projects we’re really passionate about.

Freelancers aren’t, however, made of cash. This is our main challenge. We need your help to generate what’s required to cover the production and shipping costs of the first run of footballs. We want to make this product available globally, so we will also need to spend time making the project known and getting it shared far and wide - thankfully our collective marketing expertise should help us greatly in achieving the reach we’re hoping for.

Our first backers will start receiving their footballs around the end of April/early May.

We feel our pricing is fair when factoring in the production and shipping costs for this custom item - we want as many people as possible to be able to buy one! That's why, for orders of multiple balls, we're not charging any shipping fees.

Finally, while this is for the enjoyment of both us and our backers, we realise we might be ruffling a couple of peoples' feathers here. In the unlikely event that we get a smack on the wrist for drawing a picture and sticking it on a football, please remember that it's JUST FOR KICKS!

If you like our project, please tell your friends and family about us - Thank you!
