Thanks for your reply.
I am an independent designer based in Edmonton, who fell in love with the original poster from NASA that is based upon and so redesigned it to reflect the actual mission.
The thing with Kickstarter is to allow for project creator to gauge community support for a project. As a designer, I loved doing this poster. But the question I need answered is it a project others would love. Is there a demand for this poster? I don’t know.
I had some initial response when the project launched, but it has died down. I have to now put this poster in front of others to gauge their support. Considering the content of this poster, this is why I have come here.
I am not in a position to take the risk of fronting the cost of a poster run that might not sell. What Kickstarter does is to allows me to understand the demand and if there is a demand to collect funds for a pre-order that is transparent and upfront in how it works.
So there is two question then: do you trust the platform and do you trust me.
For the platform I am selling on I ask you do the research. I have provided the link to Wikipedia so you can start there.
Just so you know, I supported someone starting up there bakery and the next couple of weeks I will be getting some baking.
For me. Well I am an independent communication/knowledge sharing consultant based in Edmonton. My company website is Ktnexus.ca (which I should update with this project) and through there you can find links to some of the other work I have done.
Also I have included a link to the printer I will be using on my website. You can email them and find out that I have been working with them on printing this poster, even though I have yet to order with them.
I hope that helps.
