Noteworthy notebooks: Eggpicnic creates limited edition pads to inspire change
Fusing design with conservation, Australian brand Eggpicnic looks to raise awareness of the continent’s endangered fauna through vibrant illustrations and characters. Their first ever stationary launch, ‘Endemic Series’ consists of a duo of limited-edition field notebooks featuring two of Australia’s most critically endangered animals.
Helmeted Honeyeaters and Southern Corroboree Frogs adorn the covers of just 50 hand-numbered notebooks each, created alongside Santiago-based design studio La Mano Ediciones. Every notebook is screen-printed, crafted by hand and made from recycled paper.
The project stems from Eggpicnic’s work ‘Endemic’ (a project, they state, ’created in response to the need to change our hearts and minds in order to identify how we can create a healthy relationship with our land’), developed for the 2015 exhibition ‘Future Nature’ at the Australian Design Centre, in collaboration with the Australian Museum.
Aiming to end wildlife extinction through education, these books look to inspire change through visual design and creativity. Note to self: design and conservation make a dynamic duo.
