I especially like people who love what they do. But sometimes, fundraising can be a bit of a roadblock for people when trying to get off the ground with what they love. That's why one of my favorite sites to peruse is kickstarter. There are tons of passionate people - trying to launch businesses or start their music career or sell their first products. Likewise, there are a ton of people who can empathize with just starting a business or who are equally passionate about a product and want to chip in a few bucks toward the cause. Kickstarter brings them all together.
A few weeks ago, I received an email from Chaz over at NewRado Designs asking me about shooting a product video for their kickstarter campaign. They were looking for a quick, interview-based video that showed off their deliciously designed furniture, but also gave their kickstarter backers a chance to put a face to the passion. How could I say no?!
Chaz and Max originally developed the idea for their tension-based furniture from a simple sawhorse. What has come out are these amazing! products. And you want to know what's my favorite part? It all packs flat. Oh, and there are no screws, nails, glue, or any other messiness to deal with when putting it all together. And! on the bottom side of the tables and stools are colors! I love secret details.
If you're on the hunt for new furniture, awesome. Go check these guys out. If not, but you love that these guys love what they are doing, go check them out. And, totally cruise kickstarter and see what other people are creating.
