Crowdfunding has really taken off over the past 6 months with Scott Wilson’s TikTok project raising nearly a million dollars on Kickstarter, to new niche crowdfunding sites popping up every month. There’s Emphas.is for photo journalism projects, WeDidThis for arts in the UK, and now CKIE “an international funding and pre-ordering platform for product design”. Kickstarter isn’t interested in pursuing the pre-order model, so that’s where sites like CKIE come in. Check out Nooka’s sweet wall clock project. I want one for Detraform HQ.
