About


Hi! I'm Destini (aka visual.destini). I'm a weirdo Gryffindor designer, artist, and Gisher who loves fandom culture, dogs, books, and has an alarming rate of streaming movie & tv consumption.

I've been a freelance graphic designer and artist for 7 years. Along the way, I've designed for fun- silly jokes and nerdy ideas of my own and of my friend's- with no plan for their use. I occasionally upload them to print-on-demand sites, but never thought much beyond that.

Recently, though, I met a screen-printer that's not only skilled & local, but extremely flexible. With their fantastic work, I can finally put to use the (literally) dozens of designs I've developed over the years. 


Here are the first 10 designs I'll be launching with:

 And your options when choosing a tee shirt as a perk! 

These are mock-ups, and colors/styles are subject to change (except for Newt Who, the first batch of which has already been printed! All shirts will be printed on high quality Gildan Unisex Tees, at least to start- I hope to expand with more products including tote bags, pins/patches, and more!

I believe in this project and I plan to launch the line whether or not the Kickstarter funds. I know that it will be way more successful (and faster!) with a big launch and a solid starting inventory.

So- I want to launch these designs with a convention. This Kickstarter will fund both the starting inventory, and my first-ever event's cost. My hope is that a larger event like Raleigh SuperCon will generate enough profits for me to add to my line, and then do the next con- and so on, and so on. 


Breakdown of the expenses, and how the Kickstarter funds will be used:


I will also be doing a Donor Giveaway when the event is funded! 

One random donor will win an autographed bookmark with the design of their choice, signed by the celebrity of their choice from the event where I'll be launching! 

If I can fund fast enough, that would be Raleigh SuperCon: Tim Curry, Felicia Day, Graham McTavish, Cary Elwes, Summer Glau, a panel from The Office and more!

Risks and challenges

The most common risk with a project like this is not being able to meet the demand when creating the products. However, my screenprinter is more than comfortable meeting a deadline, and has successfully finished projects with thousands of products in a rush timeline- so the two month shipping date on shirts will give us plenty of time.
