An intervention with the sketchbook
The product takes form as a response to the romanticized relationship between individuals and journals/sketchbooks. Pretty little notebooks that are intended to facilitate the documentation of thoughts, ideas or grocery lists often do the contrary.
"Sketchbook phobia" "Fear of the blank page" are associated with causing this.
The product, in it's pristine state and clean appearance is useless. As the user tears the seal and rips the paint they are invited to make the product their own. At this moment, the value of the notebook will exists in its use, not its design.
