I have spotted these colorful notebooks for quite a while now, it got me curious to find out the actual story behind them.
Archie Grand is a Scandinavian notebook maker. He produces notebooks for shopaholics, artists, fahionistas to charlatans and luminaries The idea is to give each of these charming charlatans a notebook that pursuits their creativity.
How to start?
According to Archie Grand; ”Start using your hands your eyes and your mind. Use them to: Create, record, write, cut and paste. Use everyday objects, bus tickets, photographs news articles, love letters, etc., etc. Use scissors and scalpels, glue and pens, paint, a chain-saw, cut past and build”
How does it work?
Part 1: Choose an inspiring title and make sure the colour is vivid enough to spark your creativity, believe me this is the hardest part!
Part 2: Gather old magazines, books, photographs, newspapers, etc.
Part 3: Cut and paste, type, draw, glue,… Make this notebook yours.
Part 4: You can email Archie your masterpieces and it will be displayed onto his website.
I’m still trying to figure out which one I like the most. Which one is your favorite?
Let me know!
