[Update: We’ve decided to release 100 to the public. We didn’t want to sell them, but so many people asked to buy them we decided to give in. The journals are expensive to produce and it’ll help us offset some of the costs.]
We wanted to express our gratitude to everyone who came to FOWA this year. We know that you have to commit your valuable time and money to hang out with us, and we really appreciate it.
So we decided to design and craft something special that we’d give to every single person who came to FOWA, so we came up with the idea of a limited edition Carsonified Journal.
Mike spent weeks designing and crafting the packaging and journal. We didn’t want a single sponsor logo or any overpowering Carsonified branding on it – just a simple gift for you all to enjoy.
We included a pencil and a sharpener in each box, so that you can sketch and write to your heart’s content. We chose a pencil instead of a pen because it’s the epitomy of analogue, which we miss in our everything-is-digital world.
To hold the journal box, we wanted to give you a bag that was climate-neutral and not smattered with FOWA logos. We found this amazing company that makes Jute bags, which are completely compostable and we added a simple ‘Carsonified’ tag. It’s got enough room for a laptop or anything else you might want to carry. The idea is that you’d actually want to keep it and use it, instead of chucking it straight in the bin.
We also spent a bunch of time writing hand-written thankyou cards for everyone who came to FOWA, just to let them know we loved them.
So … thanks for coming to FOWA! We appreciate you. Here are some extra photos of the journal …
