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.

Mental Illness is something that is really close to both myself and Callum's heart, and for ages we have wanted to honour that in some way and create a community of people who can support and share their stories. Our very first step in this process is creating our very first hard enamel pin and my gosh we are super excited about it! 

Overthinking is something everyone does at some point in their life, but for some it is a constant thing, worrying about one thing or another. So why not pick the positive out of the negative and join a community and wear our pin with pride! 

The pin details include: 

- 25mm wide 

- Has a rubber clutch to ensure security and comfort

- Hard enamel so will be great quality and durable 

- Comes complete with a backing card  

We do have a budget for the money that we raise, and of course we want to share it with you! It is important for us to know that you know exactly were your hard earned money is going! Therefore: 

- Pins - £180 

- Backing Cards - £30 

- Postage and Packaging - £20

- Kickstarter fees - £20

So if everything goes to plan, we hope to have the pins with us mid June time, and then they will be sent to you in due course!

Risks and challenges

We have had a few conversations about manufacturers with a number of creative people we know, and we have chosen the one which we feel will be the best for the job! However, as with anything, delays are possible. We will do our best to minimise the risk of this in any way we can. The manufactures we have chosen are super friendly and are very open and will keep me updated with every step of the way, which will allow us to keep you lovely people involved in the process too!
