My name is John, I'm a secondary school teacher and teach Design and Technology.
I also run a company called DTResources Ltd who will deal with production and shipping once the campaign is finished.
I have been a teacher for 17 years and have taught thousands of pupils how to draw isometric sketching techniques. I also work as an educational consultant and have delivered many drawing courses to teachers too.
I have designed many drawing stencils over the years, they have been popular but made in very small batches. I need help to get stencils made in larger quantities than I can manage whilst doing 'the day job' too.
I have now taken the best features from previous products along with what I have learnt to create 'The MICRODOT®'. This is a small stencil, that is packed with features and FUN.
I am ready to go with manufacturing once backed and order numbers are confirmed. With the help from kickstarter, I am sure my stencil will make its way round the world!
I have recently been doing more and more consultancy work and am very passionate about trying to get as many pupils and teachers in the country to draw correctly. The MICRODOT® has been extensively tested, my aim is to get as many pupils in the world designing with the help of the MICRODOT®.
I strongly believe that if you can draw a cube, you can adapt that cube to produce most products on paper. The MicroDot® stencil is compact, it uses the ‘dot-to-dot’ principle taken from the DTDOT® and also has a selection of carefully placed ellipse tools so the pupil can actually see how to use them.
There is a stencil for isometric cut outs, a funky arrow for annotation that can even be flipped to highlight environmental consideration. There is a 30 degree wedge for general isometric project, a small ruler and the fun, and much liked feature is that of the ‘sun and sunglasses’ stencil.
This feature helps pupils consider a direction of light source before they start to draw so rendering/shading can be done correctly.
If you back me, you will be helping more people learn to draw and design like a Pro.
P.S proof of financial backing will be included with your order so you can claim money back if you work in a school. Thank you.
Risks and challenges
This is a low risk project.
I run a company called DTResources Ltd, once backing the campaign is finished, work can start at putting orders together for distribution. No risk at all in meeting the demands of the project.
• Everyone that uses the MICRODOT loves it within seconds.
Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
• I have taught thousands of pupils to draw and this stencil will be the best method with some help.
• I have access to many schools via my job and know the project will be a success. I also manage two Facebook groups and have access to inform over 20,000 teachers about my product.
• The capital from Kickstarter will help me move on to the next stage of production so that more stencils can be made at speed. I have production methods in place to start large scale batch production once backed.
