A laserengraved, aerospace aluminum ruler set at a practical 30° angle for comfortableusehas smashed its Kickstarter funding target inside two hours.The 30°Ruler puts a new spin on an old classic – a tool seen in every classroom, drafting board and design studio yet something that has been unchanged for generations.
The clever team at pro-environmentalist design company, Orangered Life is the visionary force behind the 30° Ruler. While the innovators have a very successful Kickstarter project under their belt, The Ruler 1.0 with1439 backers in 20 days, the lighting speed success of the 30° Ruler 2.0 is a personal best. In addition to reaching its funding target within two hours of launch, the project has alsoreceived more than hundreds of backers and dozens of favorable comments fromsupporters.
Orangered Life designer says, “The idea for the 30° Ruler actuallycame when we were creating our previous Kickstarterproject. As we were creating the Foliage, we realized that while we have rulers on hand all the time as designers, they really haven’t evolved or made life easier for the user. We focused on bringing a classic design up-to-date and it’s those changes which we think have been so well received by Kickstarter’s community of investors."
“We came back with our 30° Ruler 2.0, to achieve our funding goal in less than an hour shows exactly how overdue this overhaul was and how much demand there is for the ruler to rule them all. We’re so pleased that backers felt as strongly about the 30° Ruler as we do and funded it inrecord time! It’s a very special accomplishment.”
The 30° Ruler was developed for designers but is suitable for everyone. Instead of tiny measurements, it has practical, easy to read indications and a larger font. It has a slope, so it’s easy to use, even at a distance. The slope and bigger font mean there’s no need to hunch over the tool, so users can maintain a more comfortable, healthier posture.
It’s also easy to pick up, zero start, safe for cutting, non-slip and ultra durable thanks to Aerospace grade aluminum and superb engineering. Laser engraving means it will last and last and it’s available in a choice of three different measurements and three lengths.
The 30° Ruler 2.0 launched on Kickstarter and pledges began at £12 (40% Retail Price) and different pledge packages available. And also they offer laser engraving monogram options which is a great gift idea.
