A new notebook design has been added to the online shop – just in time for the Christmas rush (I’m hopeful!).
As the title suggests, the design features lots of doodles in vertical lines, with a splash of colour here and there. The design is available in four colour schemes – grey, blue, yellow and green.
The design has been created using skills learned during The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design course. Firstly rough sketches of the proposed design were created and then a final version produced on A4 paper using black pen. This was then scanned into the computer, tidied up on Photoshop and loaded into Illustrator. A coloured background was added and then different colours inserted into parts of the doodles in colours to complement the background colour.
As with The Leaf Press’s other personalised notebooks, the design is printed on to 300 gsm card using pigment ink. Each notebook contains 24 pages (48 sides) of Conqueror writing paper and is hand-sewn using coloured thread to match the colours in the design. Each notebook is presented in a sleeve and gift-wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon or twine, so it’s ready to be given as a gift.
The Doodles notebook can be viewed in the Personalised Notebooks section of the online shop.
