The Modern Memo

The Modern Memo

This modern stationary concept reimagines the sticky note as a reusable, eco-friendly alternative to wasteful paper notes. Simply called Reminder, the gadget works similar to a kid’s magnet doodle board, where magnetic particles are brought to the surface and made visible with a magnetic pen. Better yet, you can assign a timed alarm to each note via the smart dock. When it’s time, the sticky note will light up as a reminder!

The Capping Routine

The Capping Routine

It is frustrating to misplace the cap of a pen; kinda makes it look handicapped. A sidestep in design is to have a pen with no cap. Taking the old concept a bit further, we have the A-Pen – a pen with an integrated cap. Very simple and very clever!

Rethinking the Ruler

Rethinking the Ruler

Duplo might be a simplistic twist on the ruler but its basic redesign gives it much greater functionality! A sliding component makes it easy to draw predetermined line lengths in a flash. Just slide it to the desired position and go! It also makes it quick and easy to identify and save the length of measured objects without having to peer closely or line up. Just snap it on and slide it closed for perfect measurements each time!
