    2018 DIARY

    , , , , ,
    Following the success of our first Diary in 2017, we have collaborated again with Swiss-German graphic designer, Catherine Nippe, for our 2018 Diary. We developed the clean page layouts, in response to research and discussions with diary users back in 2016. We wanted to provide maximum writing space, stripping away any unnecessary page clutter, providing a helpful 'picture of the week.' The 2018 Diary has a cover in grey-green, with copper foil details. The page layouts are printed in muted grey. The diary has 112 pages, with a week-per-spread and a year overview for 2018 and 2019. They are printed in Netherlands by Drukkerij Tielen, and ota-bound at Binderij Hexspoor for a perfect layflat. First batch of 300, September 2017. As with all our notebooks and diaries, each diary is individually numbered and hand-wrapped at our London workshop. In response to feedback from users of our 2017 Diary, we have made some tweaks : — we are including a set of brass page markers with each copy, to help you keep track of the current week, and important dates coming up — we have avoided printing on the end pages to allow more white space

    2017 DIARY

    , ,
    Our 2017 Diary has now sold out, however the 2018 Diary will be available from Summer 2017. If you would like to reserve a copy now, please send us an email. — Limited edition of 200, November 2016. This year we are very excited to add our first Diary to the Mark+Fold range. Combining the best materials and binding techniques we have come across, we carried out research with diary users to develop a brief, and collaborated with Swiss-German graphic designer Catherine Nippe to design the clean, simple layout. Like our Notebook Mark One, the Diary features Ota-binding for an elegant, effortless lay flat. The Diary is printed using traditional offset lithography, and bound in Holland by the renowned Binderij Hexspoor. We sampled over 100 white papers to select Olin Smooth Cream 120gsm which is milled in Aberdeenshire. It is wonderfully smooth and thick enough to prevent ink showing through. The cover is made from heavy 350gsm stock, milled in the Lake District. The cobalt blue cover is offset with subtle detailing in matt gold foil. The design is inspired by our in-depth discussions with diary users, who told us about how they use their diary day-to-day. We developed a brief based on the principle that your diary should inspire you to make plans and feel organised. We wanted to offer the maximum writing space on each spread, and avoid anything in the layout that would cause an obstruction to your thought process. We were told that, as well as listing appointments, it would be useful to have some list-writing and note-taking space on the page; that some divisions were helpful, but anything too prescriptive could be annoying. We chose the Verlag typeface for its simplicity, elegance and legibility, and the diary is printed in Pantone ink throughout to match the colour of the cover. A5 Diary (December 2016 — January 2018). Printed offset litho Pantone 295U to match the cover stock. Ota-bound in Netherlands by Binderij Hexspoor. 112 pages Olin Smooth Cream 120gsm. Cover 350gsm Colorplan Cobalt, with details in matt gold foil Luxor 429.
