GUM CARDS: Funding successful!

I can’t even believe it. As of 2:15 pm Atlantic Time today the GUM CARDS project has surpassed it’s funding goal of $4000, and we still have 20 days of fundraising to go. Absolutely shaking with anticipation over here. This means we officially have the greenlight to move all the elements into production mode to get this thing moving. Amazing!

The sudden lurch forward in funding came from none other than Dave Hardy out in Portland, Oregon. Dave wrangled together the necessary resources to secure the whopping Diamond Pledge package, which means in November I’ll be flying out to Portland, partnering with Spaceman Design and AIGA Portland to do a DESIGN RENEGADE speaking event. Man oh man, you don’t even know how excited I am for this. Portland! You and me!

I want to thank each and every one of you who have helped move this little project forward over the last 10 days. Your support on every level means the absolute world to me. Can’t say that enough. Head is completely spinning.

So, beware next week as the GUM CARDS project takes on an entirely new life. Busy revving the engines over here!
