THE HOME STRAIGHT!

Update posted on Sunday 30th October '11 @ 04:10:58

We just wanted to give everyone a quick update on how the project is progressing. Finally, we're very nearly there! Everything is coming together well, and we're taking delivery of all this amazing stationery right now. We're so excited to see this become a reality, and that w'll be able to send you out your rewards very soon.

***YOUR REWARD WILL BE READY TO POST IN THE NEXT WEEK TO TEN DAYS***

We've been working closely with our wonderful printers and binders, picking the perfect paper stocks and making sure everything is just right. Unfortunately though, we have a bit of bad news too, as due to unforeseen errors in the final printing stages, we have reluctantly had to drop the awesome Karl Toomey's design from the line-up. We tried everything we could to make it work, but unfortunately it was just not possible. We didn't want to compromise his wonderful design if there was going to be a risk that it wouldn't come out looking perfect, but sadly the risk was unavoidable. We're sad not to see it included but we are working on a way to share it with you in some other way, shape or form, so we will keep you posted! Of course, there will still be a fourth notebook design, this time designed by are own fair hand, and it's come out really nicely. We'll also be adding extra badges and other extras to make it up to you a little. We hope you can understand and forgive us for this unexpected blip!

Thanks so much again for your support and patience! You'll hear again from us once more just to let you know that your reward is in the post.

Cheers!

TOTE BAG / BADGES / THANK YOU!

Update posted on Friday 9th September '11 @ 11:09:45

There has been an incredible surge in support and pledges over the last two days... Thank you all so much! We're currently at 61% and still have a fair way to go over the next 4 days before the project ends, but it's seeming all the more possible after the support that the 79 of you have given.

In case you haven't seen them already, check out Mark Crawford's wonderful tote-bag design (best viewed large):

And Philip Kennedy's beautifully minimal, hand-drawn type badges:

We'll be posting Ross Henderson's Notebook design later today, which will be followed by Karl Toomey's design very soon.

Thanks again for your support!

NOTEBOOK COVER #1 / FUCHSIA MACAREE

Update posted on Saturday 20th August '11 @ 01:08:17

In case anyone hasn't already seen it on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr, we're delighted to post the cover design for the first our of four Keep Sketch notebooks, as illustrated by the awesome Fuchsia Macaree! She based her cover on the neighbourhood of Gowanus in Brooklyn, NY where she is living and working for the summer. "It's full of overpasses and water towers and old factories and scrap yards and warehouses (and that's my house and next door in the bottom right corner)." We're huge fans of Fuchsia's work, and very happy to have her on board the project with such a great piece of work.
