House of Thol @ VROAAM!

Tomorrow we'll be guest-speakers at VROAAM! a career-event organized by the BNO (Dutch Designers Union).  We're part of a small series of presentations about crowdfunding at the end of the afternoon, and will tell all about our WATERWORKS-crowdfundcampaign.

Not that we're crowdfunding-experts after just one successful campaign, but we might have picked up a few things here and there that could be interesting to share.
Anyway, we're happy to be part of the event and i'll make sure to be there on time, hoping to take part in a workshop or two.

More information about the event can be found on the VROAAM! website.

Without you we would've been nowhere

So.. we made it: our crowdfunding campaign is over, and what a rush it has been!
The past three months were all about getting WATERWORKS out there, trying to raise enough money for a first production run.
And that we did: we ended up raising more than €8400,-!
Thank you so much!
Thank you for your sincere enthusiasm, thank you for pledging and pre-ordering, thank you for sharing WATERWORKS with your friends!

We won't let you down: Over the next months we'll be working our behinds off to get the WATERWORKS-sets to all of you as soon as possible.
Like to stay updated about how we get on? Follow this blog or sign up for our newsletter.

Meanwhile, accept this virtual bouquet of flowers as a token of our gratitude.
(We couldn't possibly send a real bouquet of flowers to all our pledgers now, could we?)

Among Crowdfunding Superstars

Last Tuesday we were part of the 'What's up? #63: Crowdfunding Superstars' - line up.
We weren't too bothered beforehand, but upon entering the venue and seeing more than a hundred (100!) people there, i started to feel a wee bit nervous. No need though: our graceful host Jorgen Tjon a Fong asked the perfect questions to make us feel at ease and we ended up having an animated conversation that was over before we knew it.

We weren't the only 'Superstars' featured, but we were the only ones with a crowdfunding campaign still running.
One of the already successfully executed projects that was illustrated was the photobook 'Dutch Champions' by lovely Anne Claire de Breij and Niels van Muijden.

I just had to share a few of the photographs from the book.  - More images and information about Dutch Champions can be found here.

The final countdown

Our sincere apologies for the song that's probably stuck in your head now, but we're there: the Final Countdown!

Only a little more than a week left to pre-order a WATERWORKS-set and help us get WATERWORKS produced and in stores all over the world for an affordable price.

Notice the 'all over the world' we added? Well, that's because we've been receiving so much positive feedback that we're allowing ourselves to dream bigger and add 'WATERWORKS world domination' as a stretch goal.
Help us make this happen by pre-ordering a WATERWORKS-set now!
We've already made our first modest target, but with your help we might be able to reach higher.

If you pre-order now, this is what you'll get:
- You'll be among the first people in the world to receive a WATERWORKS-set.
- You'll always be remembered as one of the visionaries who made WATERWORKS happen. 
- You'll be a special guest at the official WATERWORKS launch party (will take place later this year).
- You'll receive our immense and eternal gratitude: you're our hero.
