Kickstarter Commissions is a new way for artists, writers, designers, and creators of all types to invite their supporters to commission one-of-a-kind artworks, experiences, and more.
I led the Commissions project from all sides, from ideation to creative direction, production, and promotion. Inspired by a behavior already exhibited on the Kickstarter platform — artists running projects that allow their supporters to back for custom artworks, personalized poems, and other one-of-a-kind works — Commissions enables all types of creative people to push this idea further through a dedicated initiative. While Commissions will only last a couple of months as Kickstarter’s featured creative prompt, I hope this project will give rise to new relationships between artists and the eager people who want to support (and collect!) their work. Beyond this timeframe, I hope to push this model further, as I believe there’s a ton of potential for artists to benefit from it.
