North East

We just received these gorgeous little notebooks from North East, a Japanese t-shirt label specializing in graphic design and visual culture. They're so clean and delicate, with perfect coloured stitching, that we almost feel bad about filling them with notes and scribbles.

Everything North East does is stamped with their design ethos. From notebooks to t-shirts, they focus on a love of form and geometry, as well as an immaculate balance of colour. They also have a pretty sweet website. It's a curated platform full of design related content and collaborations, as well as news, features, and interviews with designers and creative studios from around the world. You should probably go visit them immediately.
