Lottery: Beautiful design notebooks from nuuna
Slanted and brandbook have known each other for over 10 years now. In 2010 I discovered the beautiful notebooks at the Creative Paper Conference in Munich and we immediately realized that we share a passion for design, print and paper—without further ado we cooperated for our first common notebook: The Future Won’t Be Set in Garamond
A lot has happened since then and a lot of books have been produced by us and by brandbook. For two decades now, the Frankfurt company has been producing notebooks, image books and calendars for renowned design and advertising agencies and hundreds of top companies in various industries worldwide. In the meantime they have even founded their own retail label nuuna, with which they live their passion for beautiful notebooks.
In their studio, the nuuna team develops new book concepts and tests materials and finishing processes with the aim of constantly reinterpreting the medium of the book. Every nuuna notebook has an individual 360° cover design, which also includes the book edges and turns the books into real design objects. The books are made of premium paper, thread-stitched and bound in recycled or vegan materials. The covers are screen-printed or digitally printed or finished with effective metallic embossing.
Out of conviction, nuuna notebooks are produced 100% in Germany. They are produced regionally in compliance with the highest environmental, social and safety standards in factories where you know exactly what you are getting: the most intensive screen prints and the highest quality thread bindings, for example. nuuna has been using Munken paper, which comes from sustainably managed forests, for years to produce the book blocks. Since summer 2020, the premium paper has also been freshly awarded the Cradle to Cradle certificate. No resources are wasted during production and no environmentally harmful waste is produced: further confirmation that nuuna does everything right with this paper. The result: thoroughly sustainable idea memories, small design objects, collectors’ items—and the beginning of the end of boring notebooks.
Just recently we produced another joint notebook as part of our L.A. Special Edition and are still happy about the brilliant result: a flashy notebook in neon orange with dark blue screen print on high gloss—a real eye-catcher!
