      This is probably the only Kickstarter project I've backed where I have to haunt the project owner on deliverables.

      @enrique are you still looking for additional founders to include? I work for Harvest ( and might be able to introduce you.

    18. Creator Enrique Allen on December 30, 2011

      @Adam thanks for the link (we're featuring Daniel Burka: Kevin Rose's designer co-founder), I'm learning from their interviews. Yes similar concept except our purpose is to highlight designer founders/cofounders and their various backgrounds to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurial designers.

    19. Creator Adam Willis on December 24, 2011
