International Artists United
Poketo collaborate with international artists to create limited edition lifestyle goods. Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung are participants of the lively San Francisco art community and founded Poketo in order to offer an affordable alternative to buying traditional forms of art. Today we’re looking at some of their modern stationery designs that merge art with everyday functionality.
The adorable ‘Star Check List’ is much more exciting than a boring old notepad. It’s funky characters will raise a smile no matter how many things on that ‘to do list’. With 120 pages there is plenty of room to add dates and check marks to your tasks. Pads are spiral bound, with thick, recycled chipboard covers. The ‘Star Check List’ retails at $12 (prices on today’s post are in American Dollars).
The ‘Still of the Night Dreambook’ is a large hard bound book. Covered with black foil stamping in a sophisticated floral pattern. Containing 240 pages of high quality paper, you can sketch, paint or doodle all of your thoughts and dreams.
Dreambooks are available in two designs, the natural floral scene (shown above) and an abstract ‘Scenes Unseen’ version (shown below) which uses silver foil on a white cotton background. Each dreambook retails at $30.
‘Animal Notebooks’ are a set of five beautifully screen-printed designs on a heavy Kraft cover. Each book has different images on the front and back for an extra special touch. Notebooks contain 80 pages and come with a ribbon bookmark, all for just $20.
The ‘Digest Your Life Planner’ is a fun, graphic design in bright solid colours. The planner contains sections for yearly plans, 52 weekly plans, notes and contacts, allowing you to plan all the fun details of your life. Printed with soy inks on 100% recycled paper, planners are $10.
‘My Wonderland’ is a 54 week planner. Printed with soy inks on 100% recycled paper. Designed by Leah Chun, the planner is full of graphics inside and out; sections for notes and ideas, to do list, favourites, address book, and a zodiac chart. ‘My Wonderland’ retails at $10.
