The FriendZone Tee: The only thing worse than being in the FriendZone...putting someone in the Friendzone. Read more
This project's funding goal was not reached on October 25, 2012.
About this project
In my cirlce of friend, the women that have put me in the "FriendZone", are completely unaware of it. FriendZone Tees are a fun, and lighthearted way of saying, "Hey... We need to talk!" LOL. Because communication is the sure-fire cure for any butt-hurtedness that may be lingering below the surface. Afterall, how do you fix a problem, if you don't know that it is there?
I am looking for funding to produce our website and 4 initial designs. Taking the trend of "shaming" and applying it to your "bestie". Each design will feature an individual trap of the "FriendZone".
The designs are in place. The production is in place. All that is needed now, is your help.
Risks and challenges
Once my project is funded, the risk is only in managing the costs of production and shipping. In which case the internet is my friend... I have already received quotes from various print companies, in regards to the cost to manufacture.
The cost will not balloon, as I am the doing the designing (not relying on purchasing designs). I am the one that will build the website (instead of farming that out). The challenge present there, is finding the time and passion to execute, and these tees are something that I am "all in" on.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Not at all! Being planted in the "FriendZone" is not a uniquely male problem. Women have been known to land there as well.
One of the four FriendZone Tee launch designs depicts a woman that has found herself in the "FriendZone". The FriendZone Tee supports gender equality :D
Both... I try to be socially conscience and "do something", but I would also like to see this at least be self sustaining once it is up and running.
As I have experienced the "FriendZone", the easy remedy for the butt-hurtedness is communication. My goal is that the shirts could be a way to open up the lines of communication. Often guys that are in the "FriendZone" just need to hear that more than a friendship will NOT HAPPEN.
