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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
One day we met / we brainstormed ideas / we mixed together creativity and rationality / we planned a new project and we dreamt ZPlanner. Here the story...
We believe that to reach your goals and make a difference in the current uncertain and complex environment the focus must shift to your talent and to your potential.
What makes you successful today is the full empowerment of your potential, developing at the same time your rational side and your creative one.
You have to be rigorous but also think out of the box when you capture new ideas, broaden your knowledge, set your goals and challenge yourself.
Great examples from the past show how the combination of logic capabilities and creativity lead to outstanding results:
1- Leonardo da Vinci's genius came from his scientific and artistic approach.
2- Galileo made his astonishing discovery of mountains on the moon not through his telescope, which wasn’t enough powerful to support that finding, but thanks to his artistic training in a technique called chiaroscuro, which focuses on representations of light and shade.
3- In a recent study comparing every Nobel Prize-winning scientist from 1901 to 2006 with typical scientist of the same era, the Nobel Prize winners were dramatically more likely to be involved in arts than less accomplished scientists.
ZPlanner is designed to just do that: help you to integrate your brainstorming, your long and short term goals and your scheme to action in a single and powerful planner.
We believe in technology and we use it, but we also think that trace your ideas taking pen and paper is still one of the most effective way to get great results.
ZPlanner is for people like you: creators, thinkers, doers, innovators, travellers and all the people who instead of accepting the default, take the initiative to explore whether better options exist.
ZPlanner is an innovative and agile tool that combines the method and the discipline of a planner and the creativity and freedom of a notebook in one beautiful package. The convenient size, the light weight, the special lay-flat binding within other nice features are thought to carry ZPlanner with you every day of your week.
On one side you have an effective planner with a monthly and weekly layout to help you to identify and achieve your goals and be more productive. You can break down your bigger tasks in a smaller and more actionable ones.
On the other side you find a beautiful plain notebook, refillable and in different colours. You can change it whenever you like to brainstorm your ideas, free your inspiration and craft your dreams.

We have worked together on different international and local projects (technology, design, food and finance) over the last three years, when we saw the opportunity to work more closely - being focused on crafting smart and beautiful products - we started up GIAH!

Risks and challenges
The majority of the preliminary work is already complete. We have been manufacturing our prototype for last months, suppliers for this process are already in place and turnaround time is just a few days.
Once the project is funded (hopeful), our team is happy and ready to manage production and distribution
