We had a great response to our Pozible campaign, and are so grateful to everyone who supported us and helped spread the word!
Unfortunately we fell just a bit short of the mark at 75% of our target, and as it was an all-or-nothing campaign we won’t be receiving any of the funds. That hasn’t stopped us from finishing Issue 5 though – it’s come back from the printers looking awesome, so get your order in now!
What happens from here?
The campaign was a good opportunity for the team to consider the future of Side Project as a magazine. As a passion project it’s been a really fun ride, but ultimately we feel that producing the magazine (whilst also working full time jobs) hasn’t left us with the time to work on other things that we’re excited about. We’ve mentioned creating stationery and workshops over the past two years, and really want to bring those ideas to life.
For the moment, we’ll be taking a little magazine holiday and focusing on other ways that we can grow Side Project as a whole, as part of the Australian creative community. We’re not going to rule out returning to it in future, but for now Issue 5 will be the last one in this format.
Don’t worry – we’ll still be around and working on some very exciting new things which we will announce soon! Subscribe to our newsletter down at the bottom of the page to stay in touch.
