About

Quikicks is a shoes sketching aid. There are 8 unique templates that help people create their dream shoes. These templates are made for all of us— artists, designers, illustrators, collectors, sneaker heads, shoe designers and anyone else who likes shoes (who doesn’t?). Each version has the general shape of a popular style of shoe as well as various other helpful sketching support lines— such as stitching lines, french curves, and ellipses in their proper perspectives. It helps you generate ideas for shoes quickly and effectively so you can spend more time drawing and less time worrying about proportions and perspective accuracy. 

This project needs support to get Quikicks into the hands of people who make cool stuff every day and shape the future of fashion and design. It is mostly labor costs, manufacturing costs and packaging and shipping costs that are keeping this product from going out into the world. The funds raised will be going towards that and upcoming design updates. Most of the design work has been done, and the support material (like tutorials and other digital resources) are being generated through this campaign. 

You support is super appreciated!

REMEMBER: If you want to receive multiple pledge rewards, pledge as much as they would add up to, and add the shipping of the highest priced item in your list. At the end of the campaign, we will send out a survey to everyone whose pledge was higher than the level picked to ask what additional rewards are desired, and combine the shipping to send it out.

 Thanks!

Big thanks to our alma mater, The Ohio State University. In a world filled with technology that undervalues sketching, this school keeps it alive and pushes the boundaries to make sketching an integral part of the design process, where it should be. Many thanks to our professors, for teaching us a thing or two about good design, sketching and professional practice.

Risks and challenges

As with any manufacturing project, there is always some unknown. To combat these unknowns, we have teamed up with some awesome manufacturers who have given us quotes and are standing by. We are already working on sorting out the logistics and with a lot of the resources already in hand, we have minimized the risk as much as we can.
As is usual for manufacturing, the more of these units we buy, the less each costs and that directly translates into the quality of other elements involved in the project– like stickers and T-shirts and keychains. Delivery dates are subject to change; however, we are planning to have them in your hands before the dates specified in the campaign.
