Hello friends, we're obviously still elated about the great response to our campaign and with eight more days to go, we have some exciting news to share:
We’ve been big fans of the design practice of Jonathan Puckey for years and we couldn't be more thrilled to announce that Puckey’s studio Moniker (an Amsterdam-based partnership between Puckey, Luna Maurer, Edo Paulus & Roel Wouters) will be collaborating with us to design our limited edition T-shirts. Moniker’s interest in rule-based design (see their Conditional Manifesto) and unique blend of algorithmic thinking and printed output makes them a perfect match with us. They will explore the graphic language of their recent experiments with 'packing problems' (see poster above) to develop the designs of both our HOLO and CAN limited edition t-shirts.
We’re also proud to announce we are now offering Moniker’s Birthday Posters amongst our gifts. For $350 you'll get a custom poster that documents all the dates of your birthday in graphically ordered Roman numerals and a year subscription to HOLO. These posters normally retail for €300 so this is a great opportunity to score a unique print experiment and support our venture.
We also have some other announcements regarding our gifts:
- The eight TouchDesigner 088 'commercial' licenses we had available sold out very quickly. We have attained more licenses and are now offering a ‘commercial’ TouchDesigner license, a year HOLO subscription and special recognition in our first issue for $500 (which is a steal given the software alone retails for $600 USD).
- We also still have a range of amazing 3D prints, laser drawings and electronic devices produced by Marius Watz, Eno Henze, Zimoun and Matthew Plummer-Fernandez available for more generous donors. This is an extremely rare opportunity to pick up affordable work by key artists in the HOLO universe AND support our project.
We’re thrilled to have sold almost 700 copies of HOLO 1 – thanks to each and every one of you for believing in this project. With eight days remaining, there is still more to achieve – please help us spread the word about HOLO as each donation will help us to make this magazine even better.
