Empowering both creator and consumer, crowdfunding is disrupting conventional product cycles. It has shifted from being a niche phenomenon to a globally respected platform for launching ideas.
Sidekick Creatives is a collective of designers, filmmakers and media professionals exclusively set up to support individuals and companies to realise their crowdfunding campaigns.
We collaborate with you, fellow designers, artists and makers by offering the necessary tools and expertise required to successfully fund your projects. The tools range from art direction and campaign conceptualisation to video production and social media promotion.
Since setting up in 2013, we have contributed to the successful funding of a variety of projects in technology, fashion, publishing, furniture and product. Sidekick Creatives aims to become a reliable reference for exceptional innovators, artists, designers and the crowdfunding platforms.
The Design Museum London has recently selected Sidekick Creatives as Design Of The Year 2014 nominee for their exceptional contribution to the world of Design.

If you have a project and would like Sidekick to consider it please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Before working together, we need to get as much information as possible about you and your project.
Sidekick assures you that anything you submit will stay confidential.
To get started, this is what we need from you:
- Name and contact details
- Website (if you have one)
- Name of your project
- A comprehensive project description
- Amount of money your project needs to raise to be completed
- Planned campaign launch date

Who is this for?
Sidekick Creatives is for anyone with a creative project that needs funding for it to be realised. We strongly believe in collaboration and are excited to work with people who are as passionate about their work as we are about ours.
Are you a crowdfunding platform?
No. We help you launch your project on existing platforms.
Are you affiliated to any crowdfunding platform?
Do you run crowdfunding campaigns?
No. We are only your Sidekick. It is your project and you are responsible for creating and running the campaign. But, we are here to support you and want your project to succeed; so we do expect a high level of commitment from the campaign owner who will need to meet all the crowdfunding platform requirements.
Are you a PR company?
No, but we help you spread the word through our network and across various media platforms. See it this way, it is easier to reach an audience with a team behind you than on your own.
How does it help me?
Most importantly we help you achieve much needed funding to get your project started. We also bring experience from previously successful campaigns. As such, Sidekick Creatives can provide assurance to backers and the crowdfunding community that promises made by the creator will be fulfilled and delivered in due course.
