For those of you who have not been keeping up with the progress of this project, you may not know that in order to help cover the cost associated with design, printing, marketing and distribution of creating this calendar, it is my goal to launch a Kickstarter campaign in early 2014. However, because of Kickstarter’s artist product and video guidelines, my initial intent for the concept of “365 Days of Plant-Based Cooking, Eating & Living…Made Easy!!! 2015 Calendar Project has taken on some changes. As a result, I am forced to move beyond my comfort zone and continue to push forward to create and produce a calendar that stays true to both my professional & personal mission of “Changing the World One Vegetarian Meal at a Time!” by sharing in a clear, practical and concise way, easy to use recipes and information that highlights and promotes plant-based eating, cooking and natural/wholistic living on a monthly and daily basis.
So, in order to meet Kickstarter’s artist product and video guidelines, some of the content and possibly the title of the calendar may change. It won’t change too much from the original concept, however, the content concentration will be more in alignment with “sharing” plant-based cooking, eating and nutritional/wholistic information, rather than giving “self-help” tips, suggestions or advice.
On a brighter side of the process moving forward, the graphic design team and myself have created the cover and 2 inside pages for the calendar so far. Here’s a preview of what the cover for the calendar is possibly going to look like. And although this may or may not be the final proof, I would love your feedback and would be interested in knowing what you think of it thus far.
A big ‘Ups’ and huge thank you goes out to Joe Wagner and the design team at ATIUQ89 Graphic Designs & Printers for all of your hard work, patience and graphic design expertise. “We got this!” (https://www.facebook.com/ATIUQ89GraphicDesign) In addition, I would also like to thank Systah Daryl Davis for her wisdom, advice and guidance towards this project.
