Hi there! My name is Anna Dittmer and I'm a designer and illustrator in Düsseldorf, Germany.
For the longest part of my life, I have been an enthusiast of Japanese video games. A dream came true when I’ve traveled Japan in 2015, where I discovered "memorial stamps". Rubber-stamped on any paper at hand, you pick up a lovely keepsake from many sightseeing spots or even train stations from all around the country.
This year I decided to bring together my fondness for video games and Japan's memorial stamps in an illustration project called Pixel Passport, where I create passport stamps for places from game series' such as The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Mario, Metroid, Dark Souls and more.
Since launching Pixel Passport in February 2017 the feedback is overwhelming. People share their joy and memories about related games, and Pixel Passport even got featured on websites such as Product Hunt, designboom, and The Fox Is Black.
To give something back to everyone who enjoys and supports the project and to produce something that every (non-)gamer has a use for, I decided to produce stickers.
For Pixel Passport's first Kickstarter campaign, I aim to produce at least 100 sets of three stickers. They come in a simple packaging but the cover will have a small thank-you note and your name on it!
But here come's the fun part! Which three designs make it into the set is up to you! Once financed all backers will be given the opportunity to vote on all existing designs (not including guest designs) to decide which three designs will be produced as stickers. And the stretch goals could make it even better as each goal will add another sticker to the set!
All stickers will be produced as quality vinyl stickers by Stickermule on a white background and with a white outline, to ensure every design looks awesome on a variety of underground colors.
Starting as a side project, everything Pixel Passport that has been produced to this point is funded by personal resources. In order to kickstart an online shop with quality products, not only do I need your help with finance, but I want you to be part of this project!
- €350 Manufacturing costs for 100 sets containing three stickers and personalized packaging
- €300 Shipping costs and shipping material
- €50 Kickstarter fees
Additional funds will go into producing more sets and upgrade packaging and shipping. After that all remaining funds will go into producing more Pixel Passport related products that will hit the online shop which will launch after this campaign is completed.
Additional Stretch goals
Risks and challenges
Since this is a one (wo)man show and I've never done a crowdfunding campaign before, this can be overwhelming. However, rest assured that I'm well prepared and that I have calculated some extra buffer time and funds to make this all happen in the time stated.
To keep the schedule the creation of commissioned designs for "New Game+" pledges will start after the campaign is done in January 2018. However, the creation of commissioned designs for "Spiritual Successor" pledges will start after the campaign is funded as the designs will be produced as stickers and added to the sets.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
