Hi, I’m Marianne
As the lead manager of Design Imperator and Isolated Thunderstorm, I am honored to present our latest project, Ragnarok Silver Prints.The immense support and interest for our last project, Ragnarok Playing Cards, has inspired us to expand upon the theme and honor our renowned ancestors even further. On the playing cards, every god and jotnar is logically cut from the waist and many backers have encouraged us to complete their portraits as an honorary way to complement their iconic status in any possible way.
This has motivated us to hire the danish artist, Nicolai Aaroe, to revisit and finalize their portraits as fine art prints. Every portrait is based on extensive research into the scandinavian lore, backstories and origin of each deity. Weaponry, posture, clothing, appearance and every other aspect is portrayed realistically and with the individual characteristics of each deity in mind, respectively. Hail Odin for sacrificing his right eye for knowledge and wisdom!
Printed using rich, black ink and with details highlighted in silver foil, these portraits will surely honor the gods and dramatically catch the attention of any mortal bystander.
Each print is A4 sized (210x297mm / 8,3x11,7 inches) and printed in Denmark on high quality 350gsm matte paper with selective details (such as jewelry and weaponry) adorned with eye catching silver foil!
- Silver foiled + rich black ink.
- Illustrated in hand by Nicolai Aaroe.
- Printed in Denmark on 350gsm high quality matte paper.
- A4 format (210x297mm / 8,3x11,7 inches).
- 10 prints to choose from.
It is impossible to truly capture the extraordinary effect of the metallic silver foil in static photos, which is why we strongly encourage you to take a look at the project video. Here below, we did our best to demonstrate the exclusive effect that really brings life to the metallic areas in the artwork.
Your choice of print(s) will be defined in a backer survey after the project has closed. This enables you to pick and choose freely between all available prints during the entire funding on Kickstarter. Here, you have the full overview of all available prints along with the name of each deity. You can choose as many identical portraits as you'd like.
Shipping a single print across the world is certainly possible, but a relatively costly affair with adequate protection and base packaging.
This has motivated us to design the pledge tiers in such a way that a noteworthy discount comes into effect when choosing more prints. Additionally, the shipping and tracking of the reward will weigh less heavily on the pledge total because the costs will be distributed more favorably across the board. Here, we added the full overview for your convenience and consideration:
Ragnarok Playing Cards (add +130DKK for one deck).
Personal Signature (add +25DKK).
Mini Futhark Alphabet (add +69DKK for one or +119DKK for two).
Ragnarok booklet (add +99DKK for one or +149DKK for two).
Midgard booklet (add +99DKK for one or +149DKK for two).
Fenris Copper Coin (add +149DKK for one or +279DKK for two).
Jormungand Silver Coin (add +149DKK for one or +279DKK for two).
How to apply add-ons
To apply an add-on, you must increase your pledge with the indicated value via the "manage my pledge" button while keeping the same reward level. You must then send us a private message for confirmation and specification of your chosen add-on(s). If you have any doubts or questions in relation to how add-ons work you are more than welcome to send us a private message. We will not be using BackerKit or any other post-funding pledge manager to apply add-ons.
Risks and challenges
We consider risks to be very low for this project. Only very trusted partners are involved in development and any issue will be dealt with swiftly and efficiently.
Backers will be kept in the loop throughout completion and fulfilment of project via project updates from us.
Our development timeline and estimated delivery of rewards includes buffers to pre-counter for any unexpected delays.
We are shipping all rewards according to professional recommendations by Deutsche Post and DHL and will handle the fulfilment process ourselves to make sure that everything goes as planned. We have much experience with the shipping company and have used them for several years to send thousands of parcels, big and small. We have every reason to believe that all rewards will be delivered to you as intended.
Please note that Design Imperator can not be held responsible for any damaged, lost, unclaimed or destroyed parcels. It is crucial that you enter your address correctly in the survey after the project has ended.
Since experience tells us that some decks, regardless to which country they are sent, can have an unexpectedly long delivery status and/or customs processing. We need to ask for your understanding, that it may (in rare cases) take months, from the time of dispatch, to the actual delivery to the recipient.
If the reward itself does not live up to our quality control and pass our condition inspections we will return it to the facility and demand a re-production. IF this should happen, some delay in our fulfilment process can occur and we hope for your understanding in such event.
