Geeks Doing Good 2019…update!
We debut new items in the Worldbuilders Market here and there throughout the year as our creators come to us with cool ideas, random licenses are cleared, and so on. But years ago we figured out that springtime seems to be when we get the most product-related movement, so we plan the Geeks Doing Good store event for June. That’s just how the calendar seems to fall, and this year was no exception. There was a lot of excitement from the creators we reached out to, and we were able to get a lot of cool stuff going.
The biggest item was phone cases! All of us here at Worldbuilders are pretty phone-case-obsessive. Rachel and Mike favor the Otterbox, since they drop their phones. A lot. Maria too, since she works on a farm. Jenny is more careful with her phone, so she has a colorful case that features a drawing of her daughter holding a potato (because Jenny). Anne has a wallet case because she tends not to carry a purse. Brett is a hipster, so he has a weird special hipster case that we don’t understand, but it makes him happy.
This year, we got the go-ahead from The Adventure Zone to produce a limited-run Bureau of Balance phone case, so of course we wanted to make them as pretty as possible. These phone cases were exclusive to Geeks Doing Good 2019 which means now they’re gone forever, so we hope everyone who needed one managed to get their hands on one! We also got an enthusiastic response from Jim Butcher and his staff, as well as the amazing artist Mika Kuloda, whose Dresden art graces a new round of prints and phone cases.
Anyway, we know you’re probably here to see where we are in the manufacturing process on all the pre-orders, so here we go!
