Write Sketch &: a stationery brand encompassing my love of pattern, colour, shapes and 1980s postmodernism. Founded in 2014 in Milan, just like the Memphis Group – one of their key influences – the company is still fairly new. I’ve been following them on Instagram right from the beginning and every product they create is formed of bold accents of colour and simple shapes. Strong, geometric stripes, waves or playful zig-zags, in the style of Nathalie du Pasquier, take centre stage a lot of the time. With a focus on notebooks, they’ve also launched patterned wrapping papers, tote bags, pens and bookmarks. My favourite products, their ‘Super!’ collection of notebooks, feature two different complementary designs on each side of the book. It’s nice having a choice of which side to use! I was lucky enough to come across a Paperchase store in London recently which sold their designs so I happily treated myself (despite not needing another notebook)! I also got very excited to spot their notebooks in independent design shop Chandal on holiday in Barcelona recently.
