Leuchtturm Peka Springback Binder

If you care about presentation, or just simply the way papers or collections are kept, you’ll probably nerd out a little with me about this binder. Originating around 1917 from the KABE Verlag (KABE publication) company, the Springback binder was intended to instantly bind documents into a book, singly or in batches. A hidden binding can be opened and closed to rearrange or add contents, making it functional as a regular binder yet more secure as with a book cover. Keep in mind that the spine of the binder is rather large to accommodate the function, but I’d say that’s a small price to pay for such a finished look.

A Goal Planner

As we all know, goals are often easy to dream up but sometimes very hard to accomplish. Designer Victor Jack Mathieux set out to make a planner that has a step-by-step guide for setting goals. Intended for absolutely anyone, the easy format is a snap to follow and will help you define your resources and action plan. Once you have the plan down on paper, all that’s left is putting it into practice. Could be a thoughtful gift for a recent graduate.

Spaces for Ideas Expandable Sketchbook

If you have to put pen to paper to sketch out your ideas, then take a look at this expandable sketchbook. While the book measures a smaller A6 size (14.8cm high and 12.5cm wide with spine), each of its 5 pages expands into a larger A3 size. Not a bad size for something that fits easily into your bag. Also, for Design Sojourn’s 1st Birthday, they are offering free shipping for any amount of sketchbooks you purchase. (Birthday sale is over.)

Keep Your House in Order Journal

Sometimes, and I do stress sometimes, planners are filled way too quickly with meetings and other work related stuff to the point where any home notes fall by the wayside. Perhaps it would be beneficial to have a separate journal altogether to jot down groceries, bills, DIY projects, etc… even to make note of books and movies to read and watch. Could be a smart way to keep work and home life separate (literally).

Fourteen month, undated planner.
