Kickstarter, here we come!

Po nekaj mesecih trdega dela in letu in pol razvijanja Troble smo končno pripravljeni. Izdelali smo prve prototipe nove Troble, ki delujejo odlično. Posneli smo predstavitveni video in fotografije izdelka (posnel je nihče drug kot Dean Grgurica), besedila so spisana in komunikacijska strategija je že skoraj v celoti izdelana.

Vse skupaj smo pred dnevi poslali kickstarterju v odobritev. Za vsak projekt preverijo, če je v skladu z njihovimi pravili in standardi. Včeraj so nam Troblo odobrili in v mailu zapisali „very cool design!“

Kampanjo bomo zagnali 7. aprila z zabavo v RIIBI v Izoli, kamor ste vsi toplo vabljeni! Do takrat pa je tukaj nekaj fotk tega, kar smo počeli do sedaj.

P.S.: Sicer pa se priporočamo za širjenje glasu o Trobli in zahvaljujemo za vso podporo do sedaj!

After months of hard work and a year and a half of developing the Trobla, we are finally ready. Our newest prototype works, our presentation video is ready, and we've written all the necessary texts.

A few days ago, we submitted our campaign to Kickstarter for approval and we received a quick response from them saying “very cool design!“

Now that we're ready, we're going to do it in style. You are kindly invited to join us at our launch party on April 7th at RIIBA, coworking space in Izola. Until then, we'll be posting some photos of the stuff we've been up to so far.

PS: We hope you'll help us spread the Trobla word and we are very thankful for all of your support.

On the street: Martin's table

„Kaj pa je ta luknja?“ vpraša gospa, ki je hodila po ulici, na kateri smo fotografirali.

Vidite, prav to je čar fotografiranja na mestnih poteh – nepričakovana srečanja in vprašanja. Večina mimoidočih na nas gleda z rahlim začudenjem in nasmeškom na obrazu, nekateri se ustavijo in kaj povprašajo.

„To je za kable od računalnika, gospa.“ ji razložimo, med tem ko Dean pripravlja svojo fotografsko opremo. „Ah jaz tega nimam, ne rabim teh reči,“ zamahne in odide.

Še dobro, da mize nismo oblikovali in izdelali zanjo.  // 

“What's this hole on the desk?“ asked the old lady passing by, while we were setting up the table for the shooting. 

Moment's like this are the reason we use the streets as our photography studio – unexpected encounters and questions. People passing by look at us with amusement, some stop and enquire about our little endeavor.

„This is a hole for the cables that come with the computer, madam“ we answer, while Dean prepares his camera. „I don't have a computer, I don't need that,“ she replies and proceeds on her way. 

Good thing we didn't design and manufacture the desk for her.

Martinova miza je bila sicer kar zahtevna za izdelavo, a užitek, ko lahko z razdalje gledaš na končan izdelek je neopisen. / It was quiet demanding to manufacture Martin's desk, but looking at the finished product from a distance repays the effort completely.
