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.

Having teamed up with well-established and reliable football production and printing companies our focus has shifted to creating a productionline that allows us to generate printing data. This resulted in the necessity of additional development.

This is why we need YOU! 

To guarantee that the football you designed utilizing our app will look just as perfect when rolling off the manufacturing belt.

So we ask you to invest in our software development, therefore you will get a unique product.

By backing Balldesigner you can realize your custom-designed football! Help us to kick this thing off!

What`s our vision?

For a long time, enchanting a football with one's own creativity has been the privilege of selected view designers, working for big corporations.

 We, the BALLDESIGNER team, think that it’s about time to enable each and everyone's creativity in order to design unique footballs that bring colour to the pitch!

Who´s behind Balldesigner?

We are a complementary team of seven people: 
- with passionate and driven visionary
- with capable technical skill, that can deliver the product against that vision. 
- with people skill to make sure that the best people are recruited and retained
- with administrative skill to make sure, that as the company grows, the wheels stay on

What´s our mission? 


Our goal is to substitute boring design with individuality and creativity. Balldesigner enables everyone to create their own, custom-designed football.

Whether it is kids in school or professional designers our mission is to share our passion for creativity utilizing Balldesigner, a smart online tool, independent and free.  

This much creativity and exercise cries out for recreation – and a good cause!

Risks and challenges

As with any software and product development, unforeseen challenges are possible. Our team of professional designers, sales, and marketing experts have a pretty good idea of what lies ahead and we're well equipped to deal with whatever comes our way.

That said, there are common obstacles that sometimes come up, which include:
• Shipments that are lost or damaged
• Customs delays
• Fulfillment: Delivery delays due to weather, strikes, inaccurate address information, doorstep package theft, etc.

As always, we are dedicated to making sure you know what is happening every step of the way. We'll be updating you regularly and letting you know exactly what's going on.

Quality is our main priority and there are no exceptions. Quality control will be done throughout the process to prevent any delays.

Customer service is very important to us. We promise to respond to your Kickstarter message as quickly as possible.

After all, we're doing this together! We thank you for your faith in us!
Any pledge you make brings us one step closer to the goal.
