Staff Pick of the Month is a regular feature where we ask a Paperblanks employee how they contribute to the team, what their favourite Paperblanks book is, and what they use their book for.
Q: What’s your name and what do you do at Paperblanks HQ?
A: My name is Marie and I work in the Marketing department of Paperblanks’ Dublin office.
What is your favourite Paperblanks design and why?
I just love the Ougi design from our Japanese Lacquer Boxes Collection. It is so beautiful! I really admire the artist’s attention to detail as well as the beautiful colours. I also admit I have a fondness for the little turtles shown on the cover. I hesitated for a long time before writing in the journal as I found it too beautiful to use. However, using my Paperblanks journal helped me rediscover the importance of writing.
What do you use your journal for?
I use my Ougi journal to keep notes relating to my Marketing projects. I also carry a Frida Kahlo Journal in my handbag which I use to store my day-to-day thoughts and ideas, whether its cooking ideas or simply a to-do List.
