Pip Studio Design

Do you know the company Pip Studio? They make all kinds of super cute items, liked bed covers and porcelain, and are based in the Netherlands. I have been eying their stationary and notebook designs online for a while, but never got around to buying anything. I just couldn’t choose. Now they have arrived to Sweden, and having something in your hand makes choosing easier.

And of course while I adore the whimsical compositions and colours of the notebooks they are not to my liking and were left in the shop! Yes, it is true, I do need more than a pretty cover! All the notebooks have (too narrow) lined pages with coloured designs and the corners of the notebooks are sharp! I have come to adore rounded corners (like those that the Moleskine notebook has). Rounded corners on a notebook just feel much friendlier.

So instead I picked up two folders in the book store and I am happy with those. They make me dream of having my own brand of notebooks and stationary one day… Their products makes my design juices flow, and I wish I knew more about how to make patterns, create logos and pretty digital designs/collages.

This is the kind of design that inspires me and makes me happy.

I also snapped a few smart phone photos from the shop display at my local book store:

Birds on light blue + pink flowers = very pretty!

I quite liked the set of 4 small notebooks in a box – but it was way too expensive for me, plus I have a lot of small notebooks that I kind of collect but never use. I should use them more often. Take notes, jot down words. Instead I use inexpensive pads of paper (or even post-it-notes) and save the cute notebooks boxed away. :-)

That’s the inspiration infusion from me today. I hope these images makes you happy too. :-)

  1. Oh, I love that pale blue one with the pink bird and flower! Was that also a lined notebook?
