The Challenger's Almanac is a publication I created with Mark and Emily Anderson of Sideways. The Almanac was a side project they wanted to launch in order to inspire and inform people to do what they love. Over two years I ran the project; researching the mavericks who are refining business, persuading them to write down their stories, collecting them and encasing them in a book that brought together enough wisdom to keep you inspired throughout the year. Thousands of hours, defined mostly by not knowing what we were doing but going for it anyway. Every person I met along the way, from contributors to readers to photographer Ally Sopp and illustrator Joshua Vyvyan made the project what it is today. Something I'm incredibly proud of.
Researched, managed, edited, collated, co-art directed and built the project over two years.
Co-created and ran a Kickstarter campaign which raised £13,000 to get the book from screen to paper.
1500 copies litho printed carbon neutrally in the UK.
Sold online and through retailers internationally.
