Studio Rubio Pocket Journal

Eco-friendly crafted paper goods for and by creative thinkers

About the project

Who said beautifully crafted paper goods can't be affordable and eco-friendly at the same time?! This notebook is the result of Studio Rubio's close collaboration with multiple creative thinkers. While working together we not only listened carefully to the feedback but also worked hard to incorporate the many and clever suggestions. This creative process ultimately resulted in the Studio Rubio Pocket Journals, carefully crafted and eco-friendly notebooks made for and by creative thinkers. We hope that you enjoy using them as much as we enjoyed creating them!

We are currently in the stage of refining the design and collaborating with printers and bookbinders to find the most eco-riendly production methods without compromising any of the quality. After launching production and sales of our first product, the Pocket Journal, we will expand our business and create more beautifully crafted paper goods such as an agenda, weekplanners, and limited edition notebooks in different sizes.

Minimal design that doesn't get in the way of your own style and creativity.

Blue foil embossing, for a luxurious appearance.

Made from the finest quality paper to be used with the medium of your preference.

Choose blank, ruled or dotted grid paper depending on your personal needs.

Cahier stitch binding with blue thread for a perfectly flat opening.

Clever dimensions to give your ideas the breathing space they need, while still fitting into your pocket.

What are the funds for?

The funding we are trying to raise is for production and packaging purposes only. In addition we are also trying to limit our ecological footprint by using eco-friendly printing techniques and keep packaging to a bare minimum (no plastic!). When the product is ready and sold through our webshop and sales venues, 1 euro of each product sold will go directly to Kimiaf, a non-profit organisation helping to provide education to schoolchildren in Rwanda and Gambia.

In short, by funding our project you are essentially pre-ordering our notebooks, and this at a very reduced price.

Each donation will receive a custom handmade letterpress postcard (visual below does not represent end result), and when you donate € 155 or more, you will also get a cool silkscreen printed tote bag!

A donation of € 610 or more also includes a free personalised poster or flyer design for your next project. Just to give you an idea what we can offer, please check our portfolio at
