In this article, we will discuss how you can create and manage your personal brand through social media and presence on the web.

TADA – Handcrafted Letterpress Notebooks

Handmade Journal

TADA is a new brand of handcrafted letterpress notebooks created by a couple of dreamers that still believe in the joy of little things in life.
We like to describe TADA as notebooks with a personality. They are not anonymous notebooks made by unknown people in unknown places, from unspecified materials & techniques. They are notebooks made by people for people, to communicate passion and inspire smiles trough each blank page. There are just two people behind TADA, you can see their faces and touch their hands if you like. We’re Elisa & Fabio, happy to make notebooks that take care of your ideas, projects & notes.

Letterpress Notebooks

Everything, from the design to the production, is done by the two of us, under the roof of our small, but well formed studio Apple&Pear, in London. We select high quality recycled paper, vegetable based inks & linen threads as the main ingredients of our notebooks, as well as uncompromising attention to details and authentic enthusiasm for what we do.

TADA is the result of our love for letterpress & paper, notebook addiction and passion for all things handcrafted. Our intent is to create an appropriate support for the most precious things in life – ideas, projects, travels &, why not, notes – to be cultivated. Not just every place, but a place unique and with an attitude. Each TADA is one of a kind piece, with its carefully designed details and beautifully crafted imperfections, as a celebration of individuality and human care.


Designed & made entirely by hand (elisa & fabio’s) and produced in small bunches at our studio in London, England. Yep – we design, print, bind, trim, and press all by ourselves. All the magic happens in one small, but cosy room. Human care is definitely something you can feel when you’re holding a TADA in your hands.

Inner pages: high quality recycled, uncoated paper with 50% pre-consumer fibres and 50% FSC certified and controlled cellulose. Two selections for the covers: cotton & recycled fibres paper, with FSC certification; or recycled uncoated paper, with FSC certification. All by Fedrigoni.

All the covers are hand printed in Letterpress using vegetable based inks. The back cover has a special message debossed printed in blind impression using just the strength of our arms; it’s different for each bunch of notebooks, a special tiny surprise waiting to be discovered.

All the notebooks are sewn by hand. We stitch them using simple tools: a awl, a needle and double linen thread. This makes our notebook stronger, longer-lasting and beautiful in every single detail. Other unique details include the rounded corners and the handy pocket glued with care on the inside of the back cover.

4D Self-Assembly: Easy Construction using Smart Geometrics

Designers and scientists from the Self-Assembly Lab at MIT are working on ways to reconfigure how we design, assemble and autocorrect structures in our everyday world; from microscopic tools all the way up to towering commercial infrastructures.

Consider a small, seemingly solid 3-dimensional object: give it a hard shake and it falls apart, exposing the many simple pieces that compose it. Shake it randomly and the pieces quickly reassemble. No instruction manual, no screws and no headache! Self-assembly creates a fourth dimension of construction: the three physical dimensions of space plus an added dimension of movement through time.

For his favorite band, Radiohead, he takes Pablo Honey, The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows and The King of Limbs and then turns each track, on each album, into its own novel. You can buy the albums as “Album As Books Poster Print”.

5 Free Corporate Folder PSD Mockups for Download

Example: Free Corporate Folder Mockup Template
Presentation folder designs in their purest form can sometimes be a bit baffling for a layperson to look at. Since the folder will be printed flat, images in the design will often appear flipped or upside-down in a way that’s difficult for clients or employers to understand.

Fortunately, Company Folders has assembled some mockup templates for free download that allow graphic artists to easily transform their artwork into fully rendered images of a corporate folder. This makes them perfect for creating mockups suitable for a design portfolio or for displaying to clients and employers.

Each folder template includes multiple customizable options, both in terms of the artwork that can be applied and the style of business card, brochure or CD/DVD slits included. Some mockups can be further customized; for example, one folder can feature pockets with either a diagonal or curved shape.
