Help me bring to life 6 fun new characters based on office personalities. Show off these delightfully iritating personalities on a T-Shirt, Mug or Poster. Corporate Kingdom gear also makes the perfect office gift.
I've spent my professional life in advertising, marketing and journalism. I co-created The Corporate Kingdom back in 2001 as an homage to all the eccentric people I worked with over the years. I'm developing a new set of characters and re-introducing my classic office personalities to a new generation of workers.
I’m looking for people to help fund the illustrations for 6 new personalities.
1. One Upper - He Can Top That
2. Double Dipper - Business is Booming - for her personal business she runs from your workplace
3. Poser - Always Currently Trending
4. Vanishing Technician - Never there when you need him, always hanging around when you don't
5. Secret Office Couple - Hiding their Trysts is a Full-Time Job
6. Refrigerator Thief - You Should Have Put Your Name on It
I'm also hoping for feedback from contributors on what new and existing characters they like the most and what products they'd most like to see them on. I'm also seeking feedback on the quality of my Print-on-Demand Partner - most likely Printful, but hoping for Amazon Merch for the T-shirts.
Risks and challenges
I own this company and all the artwork and associated copyrights, so there will be no delays. I am working with a young artist and we have been working through pencil sketches of the characters. It will take some art direction to get them conceptually and artistically matched up with existing characters.
I already sell and ship similar coffee mugs and posters to people in the United States. I am opening a new store on Shopify and Printful and (maybe with other Print-on-Demand partners) that will make all the characters available on a much wider variety of products to people in the U.S. and other countries by mid-October.
I am as interested in your feedback on favorite characters and products and willingness to share my campaign through social media as I am in donations.
