$10,226

There are moments from my childhood that are so burned into my brain that they have greatly influenced my sense of aesthetics and design. Watching Looney Tunes on Saturday morning, reading the Sunday comics page, and Sunday afternoon television.

Growing up in upstate New York, Sundays were always the best day for watching tv because that was when they aired reruns! Before VHS tapes, DVD’s, and on-demand Netflix marathons, if you wanted to watch your favorite episodes of Star Trek you had to wait patiently. Wait for Sunday, turn the dial to channel 11, and keep your fingers crossed that this was the week they aired the episode you really wanted to see.

It made each and every episode all the more special.

I would very much like your help in creating a new series of minimalist posters and postcards that take their inspiration from the original Star Trek television show. My hope is to not only express each episode in my own unique way but also focus on the image, elements, and emotions that have stuck with me over the years and I hope have stuck with you as well. I can honestly say that these posters would never get made without the help and support of the Kickstarter community. Thank you!

I'm sure I'll be tweaking the posters right up until I send them to the printer so the images may change slightly but nothing too drastic from what you see here! All dimensions listed are in inches. 

Thanks for taking the time to look at my project and I hope you'll help support it!

Season Two. 26 Episodes. It was important to me to maintain a similar layout in each poster which is why you see "blank" panels towards the end. I've used these panels to balance out the colors within each poster.

Risks and challenges

I have a really good idea of what could go wrong (mostly printing blemishes or shipping damage) and what I can do to correct it (get reprints done and stay in communication with the backers). Please check out some of my past campaigns to see how I strive to make sure everyone's satisfied with their rewards.
