“A new generation of designers is emerging. A generation who will define themselves not by what they design, but by why they design.” — G. Meron
Help us inspire and encourage the creatives and designers of tomorrow.
Introducing the apad. landscape notebook.
Designed by creatives for creatives, these uniquely designed notebooks are the perfect tool for designers and creatives, and the ideal format for sketchnoting, writing user flows, sketching wireframes, or everyday notetaking. The purchase of your apad. notebook will help us with the above mission.
Help design and construct a new playspace in Bangladesh.
We are collaborating with Azuko, a registered charity that uses design as a tool for sustainable development, to help raise funds for the JAAGO Foundation which are revolutionising education in Bangladesh through the use of technology. Their online learning model brings high quality teaching to remote and underserved areas of the country.
Proceeds from the sale of our apad. notebooks will be directly given to Azuko - who are working with one of JAAGO's schools to design and construct a new playspace, and examine the impact this has on education.
You can read more about the students you will be helping and their story by visiting this story on the Azuko website: https://azuko.org/news/the-right-to-play
The story behind the apad. notebook.
Our journey began with frustration around the widely available notebooks that are not suitable for the workspaces and nomadic lifestyle of many creatives. We took notice of some of these pain points and in turn, we now aim to inspire everyday solutions to help designers and creatives all over the world - through our line of notebooks we want to ensure there are great ways to capture thoughts, imagination, workshop output and more.
We have gone through a thorough prototype and testing phase, and the notebooks are currently being shipped to us from our chosen supplier, with whom we have worked to design and create this unique and bespoke product.
This is our initial product launch and we are proud to be using proceeds from this launch to support the next generation of young designers and creatives.
The design itself.
The landscape orientation comes with a lay-flat design, allowing creatives like yourself to enjoy a widescreen experience. The notebook is also the perfect size for capturing full-page images with the camera on smartphones.
The format and size of the notebook are also perfect for cramped workspaces, ideal for placement in front of your keyboard while typing, working or running remote workshops.

We know that you will love using your apad. notebook. These notebooks also make fantastic gifts to friends, colleagues and employees.
Your support will be a tremendous help.
We hope that by inspiring innovation on what some would consider a basic essential like an everyday notebook (for those that use them regularly), that this will allow us, in turn, to provide resources for the younger creatives and designers who need them the most.
This will allow us all to be one step closer to making a positive difference.
Notebooks can be purchased in packs of 1, 2, 5 or a box of 10.
Notebooks will be individually wrapped and securely packaged, along with a thank you card.
