Last year, not long after we’d printed our 1,000 copies of the Original Designers Workbooks, we sent a few off to Grafik in the hope that they’d put them in their magazine. Alas they didn’t feel they would be right for the luscious pages of their international journal on graphics, preferring to featuring screenprints from the brilliant Anthony Burrill or some super sexy collaboration between Generation Press and Build. We understood. The ODW is a functional design—with a nice clear foil block on the cover—but essentially 200 of the 204 pages are identical. It’s not going to win a D&AD Black Pencil (well it would be amazing if it did, but we won’t put the Bolli on chill just yet).
What the Workbook does offer is a damn useful notebook/sketchbook. However, having used them in their offices for nearly a year and finding them utterly invaluable, they’ve put our Workbooks top of their “Objektified” list of the most desirable notebooks around.
So thanks to Dan who wrote the article and we’re chuffed you find your Workbook so valuable.
