You've got (design) mail
On the wettest coldest day of the year so far and after a mid week day off to juggle the October week (are kids ever in school?) I was met at my desk by a lovely orange box design that brightened my day.
I digress, back to the big lovely cardboard zipped box. A very satisfying rip later and a black inner box with a shiny hit of UV is in my hands.The orange silk ribbon shouts pick me, pick me.

I’m going to call this bit FORM & FUNCTION, STYLE & SUBSTANCE.
Trust me I’m not weird it’s a designer thing.
Now here’s where it gets interesting and the ‘I never knew I needed this, but how have I managed without it’ moment occurs. I feel a different texture on the back. Turn it around and there is an equally ‘ooooaaahhh’ cover stock housing another notebook. Side one is held closed with a bright orange elastic, I immediately wonder if it comes in yellow? Embossed on this side it states ‘All ideas are noteworthy’ and inside there are feint lined pages for my inner account manager and on the other.
On the other side there are reams of crisp blank pages just awaiting pencil to paper, biro to brilliant and the birth of an idea.
All in all a wonderful, creative and functional design tool. Who knows it may even help me fill in my time sheets!
If you have an idea you just can’t get down on paper or you would like some inspiration, drop me an email or even better come in for a chat and a coffee.
