It Will Be Exhilarating

Indie Capitalism and Design Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century, As Observed By Studio Neat

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


“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.

Customer Reviews

Great story, right to the point

If you're thinking about doing a kickstarter, definitely spend $5 to read this. If not, there is still a ton of great advice for any small business owner. Don't forget to highlight your favorite parts so you can review them at a glance later, when you're looking for inspiration.

Studio neat does it again

This book is as simple, useful, and fairly priced as the rest of Studio Neat's products. Well done gents. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Great read

Loved this book, easy to take in and straight-talk abounds. No mysterious language of business, just good common sense approach to growing something great....
