Stationery has kept changing the way we communicate and share information. With notebooks, we are able to record our feelings. With letters and pens, we can write to our loved ones and it facilitates a two-way communication. With a piece of post-it, we can easily leave a message to someone and it takes only a second.
In todayâ€™s digital era, how can stationery evolve to stay relevant and keep changing the way we communicate, with all the humanity and delicate tactile feelings only stationery can give us?
DesignPhil is a brand that is passionate about stationery. It wants to invent new stationery so that people change the way they communicate now and make the experience of communicating more humane, tactile and interesting.
Change the future of communication by creating a new piece of stationery that makes the way we communicate and share information more humane, interesting and effective.
Create a new piece of stationery, as a physical object. It should be a brand new concept or a brilliant idea to reinvent a current product. It is not just about bringing back traditional human interaction and the nostalgic memories of using conventional stationery but also about exploring new ways of communicating via stationery.
You can start thinking about what you would like to improve in the current way we communicate. E.g. You want to encourage sharing: an object that could encourage people to write more and share more, or something that could lets people share their thoughts in an easy way. Alternatively you want to protect privacy: it could be something that makes communication more exclusive and private; etc.
