Bound for WMCFest

As we begin to grow our little fledgling company, we’ve had to make some decisions about how to spend our money to continue to get the word out about Bound.  We’ve done a few little marketing experiments on the web, but nothing has felt right yet.  That’s why I’m incredibly excited about our next experiment – sponsoring the Weapons of Mass Creation Fest.

WMCFest is a homegrown design and music conference in its third year.  We’re a homegrown startup with an emphasis in design in everything we do.  WMC is reasonably priced for normal people to attend (unlike a lot of big-name conferences), and Kickstarted.  We’re reasonably priced and bootstrapped through the power of 298 backers on Kickstarter.  It’s a natural match.

A few weeks ago I approached Jeff Finley, organizer and founder of WMC, with the offer to become a sponsor.  As a scrappy startup, we don’t have a ton of money to throw around to get our name on a bigtime conference.  But what we do have is the ability to make a very customized product that we hope will be very useful for the WMC-ers.  Jeff loved the idea and we worked with the WMC crew to produce what I think is the most beautiful memo that we’ve created to date, and what will certainly be a Creative Weapon for the Cleveland-bound masses.

If you want to get one, you’ll have to get to Cleveland for WMC Fest on June 8.  Lucky for you, we’ve got 2 extra tickets to WMC (and a pair of WMC Memos) that we want to give away.  Here’s how to get your mitts on a pair of WMC tickets:

  • Leave a comment on this post telling us what your favorite “weapon of creation” is.
  • Post a tweet telling us what your favorite “weapon of creation” is.  Make sure to use #boundforWMC so we can find it.
  • Or do both to double your chances.

If you’re going to WMC, come say hi.  I’ll be around.

    My favorite weapon of creation is most definitely the wooden squeegee. The wooden squeegee is typically seen as a lower quality version of the aluminum squeegee, but it is definitely a better weapon. Here’s why. The aluminum squeegee is lighter. Try clubbing your boxing dummy in your basement, you’ll find out that the extra weight of a nice, natural wooden handle will crush bone like smashing a fruit bat with a frying pan. When the zombie apocalypse happens in Florida and all you’ve got is a squeegee between you and imminent danger, you’ll want to turn that squeegee into a wooden torch and get down to business quick. Lastly, aluminum screens are too easy to clean. A wooden handle holds years of blood, sweat and ink, allowing the character to build through a personal history of artistic creation. What could be more dangerous than that?
