For those of us who are passionate about literature and reading, no historical figure looms larger in our minds than the great William Shakespeare

From his pen poured many of the most memorable and important characters in all of literature – Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Desdemona, Puck, Oberon, Shylock. The list goes on and on. Overseeing the project in our own graphic design studio, we knew that there was only one option for us when we set out to create our first figurine – it had to be the Bard of Avon himself.

This William Shakespeare figurine, based on our own original design and prototyped using 3D printing technology, will be created in partnership with a manufacturing firm specializing in toys and collectibles. Shakespeare will be the first entry in what we hope to be a long line of figurines modeled after famous writers, each one a chubby and fun exaggeration of the writer's actual likeness.

 The figure is 13 cm high (5") accompanied by a stand in the shape of a book with the most famous quote of the Bard... we know you know it :)

 "To be or not to be, that is the question".

A double side cardboard can be inserted in the stand to serve as a background. One side depicts a stage while the other the well-known scene of the balcony from "Romeo and Juliet" (for the most romantic of us <3).

Even the box is book-shaped! Inside the cover there are some quotes from Shakespeare's books and it can be closed by a magnet hidden inside. 

We hope to unlock some stretch goals, like a special collector card, a card games, a little collector parchment and even an app!   

There will be also a Kicktstarter-exclusive golden color version of the figure. This campaign will be the only occasion to get this figure!!

Two artists, dreamers at heart really, we are passionate about this project and what it would mean to our fellow literary enthusiasts. We are doing this to express ourselves creatively and to offer others a little piece of literary magic that they can place on their desks and shelves (or carry around in their pockets all day). The third member of our team is just as passionate about this project as the two artists among us, and she is overseeing all the financial and logistic aspects of the project.

Our goal through this campaign is to raise enough to cover the costs of developing the Shakespeare figurine, together with an elegant box and different accessories. Because it is important, above all for young people, to learn to love reading sooner rather than later, we hope, through this project and with your help, to contribute to empower young readers and point them toward a life of education and personal growth. 

The money raised will cover the following costs: 

  • Prototype (5%)
  • Molds (15%)
  • Production (40%)
  • Fulfillment and shipping (25%)
  • Kickstarter fee (10%)
  • Promotion (5%)

Please Note that Kickstarter use the "all-or-nothing" funding, so your pledge will be  charged at the end of the campaign and only if the funding goal is reached. 

You will NOT pay anything if the project doesn't reach its funding goal.

Please note that import duties and taxes are not included, refer to your country set of rules, regulations, and taxes for importing.

The pictures in the page show the prototypes and the 3D model. The feasibility of the figure and the accessories has already been approved from the manufacturer, however some minor changes can occur and final product may not be exactly the same.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD. Small parts. This is not a toy.

Risks and challenges

After a year of development, we have ironed out all the major challenges that could arise. We are taking care of production and distribution, so we are overseeing all logistical aspects of this ourselves. If any delays arise, we will be sure to keep our contributors in the loop.
