About

Hi my name is Harry Foreman. I’m a local orlando artist, designer, and screenprinter that goes by Akyros and I need help raising $15,000 for a community screen printing studio space. 

Why: 

I want a screen printing cooperative space, not only for my selfish reasons, but also to create a space that can benefit other local artists, printers and the Orlando community as a whole. My vision is to include 10 other in-house members to bring their practice into the space and allow them 24 hour open access to equipment.

Background:

I graduated one year ago from the University of Central Florida and dove into work as a freelance designer & artist instead of getting a your typical 9-5 “jay oh bee.”  I’m currently working out of my home studio and garage but my business is growing and with that my space needs to grow as well. After having conversations with other printers who operate out of their home, I believe a cooperative space would be the most cost effective solution for myself and other home/garage printers alike. 

I’ve developed the name Masses Cooperative as a means to empower others to continue pursuing their own business efforts within an affordable structure to launch their idea into something real. I believe that print is for the masses, down to its beginnings it was meant to spread information and develop cultures. A space that encourages these values within a city as such as Orlando I believe is destined to be great.

How:

Any contribution provided is greatly appreciated. All of the tiers of donations will be rewarded with Masses Cooperative products which are all are designed, hand printed, and packaged by me and can be sent out to you within a short time of this campaign getting funded. The funds raised from this kickstarter will be going towards covering the first 4 months rent, renovation costs, and the studio buildout fit to be a screenprinters paradise. My hope is for this vision to become a reality by the end of summer 2019. 

Stay in touch:

Please keep up with our progress as we grow within the Orlando community. You can follow us @printmasses or check out our website www.printmasses.co We have 5 local events planned throughout the month of April so we’d love to shake your hand and sling some ink with you face to face!

Risks and challenges

A risk I fear is not getting the word out enough. I believe in this idea and Orlando is the perfect place for a cooperative business structure. Sharing this on your social medias, telling a friend, or coming out to one of our upcoming events can all increase the chances of this space getting funded.
