Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Stationery / 2006

‘Grid-it!’ notepads recreate a series of grids that played a historic role in the development of design systems. They cover a wide spectrum of classic and contemporary editorial design. By moving the grids from the background to the foreground, and divorcing them from their content, Astrid Stavro pays homage as well as rendering the invisible visible. As designers, understanding the advantages as well as the limitations of the grid helps one determine what place they should take in ones own work. Besides their role as historic 'reminders', the notepads may be used for memo notes, doodling, shopping lists, writing love letters. A self-initiated project, the notepads were initially produced for The Royal College of Art and are now for sale in specialised shops worldwide and online.
