Three Entrepreneurs Squeeze Great Thinkers, Inventors and Builders Into a Tiny Box

Wise Words lets its 40 carefully selected luminaries sum themselves up, with direct quotes chosen specifically to illustrate each leader’s thoughts, motivations and contributions to history and world culture.

Wise Words (http://kck.st/185Z5zy), a collection of 40 design-focused, minimalist postcards each featuring a unique portrait of a great leader and a quote encapsulating their fundamental beliefs, launched on Kickstarter.com last Tuesday. In the first 24 hours after its launch, Wise Words reached well over 50% of its funding goal, and its momentum hasn’t slowed since with over 109 backers to date.

Wise Words showcases 40 great leaders, which are categorized into three groups: Thinkers, Inventors, and Builders. Thinkers are leaders that have revolutionized the way we view the world, including Nelson Mandela and Ayn Rand; Inventors are leaders that have brought the world its most amazing creations, including Leonardo da Vinci and Johannes Gutenberg; Builders are leaders that have created something from nothing, including Steve Jobs and Andy Warhol. Overall, the collection includes leaders of all categories from freedom fighters to professional athletes, from early philosophers to modern architects.

The Torontoist blog stated the following about the project: “Wise Words lets its 40 carefully selected luminaries sum themselves up, with direct quotes chosen specifically to illustrate each leader’s thoughts, motivations and contributions to history and world culture.”

Wise Words can be used in a variety of ways: as interior wall decorations, a conversation piece on a coffee table, or as a thank-you card to family and friends. Another popular use has become a learning tool for teachers in the classroom; with Wise Words as a teaching aid, teachers are making learning about leadership fun for students of all ages.
