“There is no recipe for passion, no 5-step guide to making your idea real, but there is good, solid advice, and this book is filled with it.“ - Clay Shirky
It Will Be Exhilarating presents the story of two designers, Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost, who started a small design company through two successful product launches on Kickstarter, the Glif and the Cosmonaut, and in turn paved the way for a new era of independent hardware manufacturing.
This book was written to offer guidance and inspiration for those charting a similar path, and covers topics such as running a small business, creating hardware products independently, launching a Kickstarter project, and tips for promoting your products. Studio Neat have learned a lot in the short time they’ve been in business, and everything is told through the lens of their own experience.
It Will Be Exhilarating is a short read that will provide the needed kick to start making stuff. There isn't a better time than now.
