T-Shirts Designed, The Bottom Ten and $8,000 left to go.

Posted by NexGen Ultimate (Creator)

Friends of NGN,

Two weeks have passed and two more remain to get NGN fully funded. With your help we've already raised $12,000, but we still have $8,000 more to go. We're still working hard and wanted share with you some things we've been working on.

The T-shirt Design

Tim Robinson of itsmetim.com has has done not one but two designs available only to our Kickstarter backers. He's unearthed an ancient Greek bust of the mythical Catalope auspiciously placarded with the name Kickstarter and growing a 10-point rack that appears to form the letters N-G-N.

He has also put his own take on commemorating the launch of NGN with this handcrafted linoprint depicting airwaves emitting from the NexGen X and symbolizing the movement of ultimate into the public sphere. Tim kindly created the short timelapse below that demonstrates the care and artistry that went into designing this for us.

And the T-shirt Reward

You have to pick one for your reward, but if you can't, don't worry. Just add $25 to any pledge over $50 and we'll make sure you get both t-shirts delivered to your home. 

The Bottom Ten

In conjunction with our Kickstarter campaign, we've compiled our favorite bloopers from the 2011 NexGen Tour into one entertainingly bad Bottom Ten list. 

The Top Ten plays will be coming to you later this week. Join us on Facebook and make sure you don't miss it. 

The $8,000

Thanks to everyone who has contributed. We're more than halfway there. Keep helping us get the word out and if you have any suggestions or contacts please contact Kevin at kevin@nexgenultimate.com.
