To help assuage the crushing post-summer blues which have left us lusting after balmy weather, sandy beaches and clear waters, we’ve partnered up with London-based stationary designers Paperboy London to create an exclusive line of pocket notebooks featuring some of our favourite places. The collection’s motto? “Life’s a beach & then you dive”.
These sleek travel companions have matte-finish covers, each stamped with a different gold-foil paradisiacal beach motif and made using materials sourced from local British suppliers. Whether you’re procrastinating at work by making travel plans or scribbling down notes as you go, they’re the perfect place to map out your next adventure or record memories on the move.
To present the launch in style, Paperboy London was part of the London Design Festival which, as an annual get-together for thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators, celebrates and promoted the city’s creative scene.
Inspired by their love of fashion, travel and obsession with design, Paperboy London creates luxury paper goods from notebooks to greeting cards. Along with Jolly Awesome, Paperboy is the brainchild of Matt and Katie Nguyen, who work together and regularly travel around the world to promote their products at trade shows. Following stints in finance and fashion, they couldn’t resist the itch to do something creative and founded Paperboy’s older sibling Jolly Awesome in 2014.
In collaboration with SUITCASE, they wanted to create a collection of useful stationery that inspired creativity, optimism and wanderlust. Working closely with British printers, suppliers and heritage paper merchants, the designers understand the materials they use, while taking a modern approach to traditional manufacturing techniques.
