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.

About


 


“falling for art with new perspectives”

This is the purpose to create this project. What if there is a pencil make you fall in love with art again? I found the sketching pencils at the market are boring which give me an idea to create aesthetic yet good-quality pencils.

My goal is to motivate everyone escapes the reality for a while and start to create more art. I’d like to inspire more people to see the world in a different way through art.

The Creator / Who am I

Hi, art-lovers. My name’s Serene Ip. Nice to meet you all. I’m an illustrator and a designer based in Hong Kong. Drawing is not only a passion for me, but also I see this as a relaxation. I’m pleased and exhilarated to encourage more folks to join the art community through my creation. This is my very first project. I hope to give more and more to you in the future.

Testing Phrase (The artists using our prototypes)

In our monthly blog post, we invite different artists to share their drawing tips and skills to our audience in order to help more young artists to improve their drawing skills for free. With your little help, you help us to expand and amplify our mission and goal to get more people to enjoy our beautiful art world. All our 10% income will go to help the artists.

About the pencil set

This pencil set comes with 2 colors: Nude pink with rose gold and dark grey with metallic black packaging. 

One set is good enough for beginners and experts. It is suitable for sketches, drawings, and portraits.

 

Waste No More 

This set includes the most used grades of pencils. One set can last a long way without wasting because most of us don’t use all shades of grades.

1 x each 3H, H, F, B, 6B and 8B  
2 x each HB, 2B, and 4B

Total of 12 pencils  

High-quality Wood

The wood is cedar imported from a sustainable forest in California.

Why cedar? Cedar has a strong resistance to withstand the variations in temperature and humidity. In other words, cedar can protect the pencils over time.

Besides, it makes the sharpening process easier.

Premium Graphite
We have sourced the high-quality graphite which is perfect for sketching and drawing.  

Have you ever felt frustrated that the lead of the pencil keeps breaking while you’re drawing? Then, you lose the mood of drawing. Therefore, we found the lead having a strong break-resistant feature and giving you a smooth experience of creating art.

Other than this, the lead is soft tender which can help you blend nicely and draw smoothly without destroying the paper texture and leaving the unwanted debris.

Easy-to-carry case

Draw whenever and wherever you want. The case is lightweight and made of thick carton. It protects the pencils and you can carry them around.

What comes in a package?

A carton case + 12 pieces of sketching pencils + testing paper

We have created a testing paper for artists. It helps you distinguish what grade you want to use before applying it into the drawing.

Behind the scene

Details of the Pencil Set


Delivery

All rewards included standard international delivery. It takes 14-21 days to receive. It is untracked & uninsured. If the lost in transit happens, I will take responsibility for it. (I hope this misfortune will not happen.)

The reward will be well protected with bubble wrap envelope. I will travel to the factory and help pack the reward and hopefully all the backers will get them soon. <3

Thank you

This is my first project. I have learned and grown a lot through all the process. Thanks for all the artists who helped me test the products and gave me loads of valuable feedbacks. I hope that I can partner with different artists and help other thriving artists.  

Learning is part of the art in our life. I hope my dearest backers can be more patient if problems occur and I will address you all one by one. <3 Thanks for all your support

Risks and challenges

In the early stages, we have to outsource almost 18 factories from the USA to Germany and China. Due to the feasibility of the design and minimum order, we are partnering with a factory in China. All the materials of the pencils are sourced from California, USA and assembled in China.

We promise to produce the best it could be, so the process from the idea to sampling takes about 8 months to make the best happen. We need you to back us up to make the project come true and motivate others enjoying art.
