About

Thanks for checking out our project! With your help the world will never see the donut the same. Ever.

What will we do with your support? With your backing we will prototype a new, reusable Donut tower in multiple sizes and configurations, complete our website and finish our marketing materials so that that we can market the Donut Tower to donut shops, caterers and others interested in this new, high impact dessert presentation.

What is a Donut Tower you might ask? It is the pedestal donuts have dreamed of: a fantastical structure of plinths, spinning tiers, columns and spires to display tasty donuts of all shapes and sizes. It will get donuts through the door when the dress code is strict, or add class and excitement to a casual gathering.

No longer will the morning meeting be stuck with bagels; nor will the party organizer have to choose just one cake flavor. When the guests satisfy their sweet tooth, The Tower will not reduce to a dismal pile of crumbs as the crowd disperses, but remain a dynamic sculptural center piece long after the ice sculpture has melted.

Simply put: it is way outside the pink cardboard box.

Who are we? We are a husband and wife team. David has a degree in architecture and uses his brilliance designing and building modern furniture and Rebecca is a creative and organizational powerhouse looking to branch out from her corporate marketing job.

Where will all this happen? The Donut Towers will be designed and prototyped right here in Portland Oregon and fabricated with durable recyclable goods in the US of A.

What’s in it for you? First and foremost that warm fuzzy feeling you get from helping out others. In addition we have gifts and treats emblazoned with our incredible new graphic donut family and will be giving you a first shot at owning one of the new re-designed towers. Mailing you a donut just didn't work out, sorry.

Thank you for your support!

Rebecca and David
