Win! Note to Self journals!
By Esther Goh,
Sam Thom wants you to get in touch with the writer, artist, designer and poet within. In an age of infinite screentime, he says nothing quite compares to the feeling of putting pen to a fresh page.
Thom says it was always a dream to start and run his own business, and in June 2010, the then-22-year-old put university aside to pursue making his own stationery brand (he's now returned to finish a Bachelor of Arts and is contemplating a commerce degree too).
The result is the earthy Note to Self line of journals, made in New Zealand from environmentally-friendly materials. Unlike many, they're very much gender-neutral with just a burst of colour on the inside covers. There are two ranges: one for writers (lined) and one for artists (unlined). And at $26.99 for a set of three different sizes, they're affordable for both student types and those after a unique, quality gift idea.
We have three sets of the full Note To Self range (six journals) worth $60 each to give away. Leave a comment below by May 30 and tell us who your creative idol is.
