PLEASE DO NOT BACK THIS PROJECT ANYMORE. I AM SORTING OUT SOME LICENSING ASPECTS WITH THE UNIVERSITY AND I PLAN ON HAVING SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I AM KEEPING THIS PAGE LIVE FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS ONLY FOR COMMUNICATION PURPOSES. THANKS. -Edgar Gallardo
ABOUT MY PROJECT
In June of 2009 I graduated with a Digital Art Degree from the University of Oregon. Since then, I have been working on various projects for my professional career as well as projects for my personal portfolio. This particular set of designs was inspired by a friend's love for anything involving the Oregon Ducks. It so happened that her birthday was approaching, so I started creating these pieces.
So far, I have heard great reviews and would like to produce this for my friends, family and all Duck fans around the world. Since I do not have the necessary funds to front the costs of producing and shipping, I am asking for your help. There are many levels of pledges and anything you can pledge will help. If you cannot help in a monetary way, please share this project with friends, family, co-workers or any duck fans you know. Thanks!
BETTER VIEW OF THE PRINTSGREAT GRADUATION AND FATHER'S DAY GIFTS! GUARANTEED DELIVERY BEFORE BOTH DATES.
The prints are 18" x 24"and will be screen printed in 3, 4 or 5 colors on 140# paper from the French Paper Co. You can get them as individual prints for a $50 pledge, or get multiple prints for a better value. (eg. All 7 for $245)
There are also 8" x 10" and 4" x 6" digital prints available for the smaller pledge values. You can either choose ONE, THREE or ALL SEVEN prints for pledge amounts of $5-$75.
I realize that there is a very large number of landmarks and people that I have left out in this set. This is only the beginning. Depending on how well this series goes, there could be more designs and sets added in the future. Stay tuned.
DETAILS OF THE PROJECT GOAL
The costs of the project are quite simple. First, the poster printing. The costs associated with screen printing are dependent upon the number of colors in each design. With each color there are set up fees for films, screens, and printing. I am also printing 8x10 and 4x6 prints. These digital prints have per piece prices as well as set up fees. All prints, including screen prints, have been estimated for quantity. On top of these printing costs, there are shipping costs for posters and digital prints. The posters will require shipping tubes, while the prints will require photo mailers. The postage has also been accounted for. The last costs included in the project goal are the fees charged from Kickstarter (5%) and Amazon (2.2% + $0.30 per transaction) for hosting this project as well as collecting payments.
I was born in Los Angeles, California and grew up Las Vegas, Nevada. I decided to attend the University of Oregon during a visit to Eugene during my senior year of high school. I played on the U of O Club Baseball team, was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity and University of Oregon ROTC. I graduated in the spring of 2009 with a BA in Digital Art and received my commission as an officer into the Army National Guard. Since graduating I have been working as a graphic designer in Portland, Oregon, Las Vegas, Nevada, and currently in New York, New York.

Risks and challenges
All design is complete. Paper is selected and I am in constant contact with the printer. When the project is funded, I will give the green light to start production. I've accounted for their printing time and I have already accounted for shipping and packaging costs and time. The main variable is the final number of backers and prints to be delivered. I already have somebody willing to help me, but if the workload becomes too large, I would hire somebody to help me.
