Writing pad sheets optimized for making paper balls

Filed under: Art,Design by Branko Collin @ 11:33 am

This pad comes with ready-made sheets for creating paper balls, whether thrown away in frustration or just to tease the teacher. The pad was created by Trapped in Suburbia who are operating from the old Caballero cigarette factory in The Hague and describe it as follows:

Play More More More is a note book that encourages clients to play at their work. Every sheet has its own ball print.

Cancel the phone book, save trees galore

Phone book

There is a petition going around that basically pleads for having the right to say no to the paper version of the phone book and the yellow pages (Gouden Gids). It’s not about taking it away from the elderly that do not bother with computers or people who actually use a paper copy, it’s about not so many of these guides ending up in the bin. Thousands and thousands do and these folks think it’s time to put a stop to it. This picture is actually of my own version waiting to be recycled yet again this year.

You can sign and read about the petition in Dutch here: Stop De Papieren Telefoongids (Stop the paper version of the (Dutch) phone book)
