Breaking the Rules
Belgian designer Marc Thomasset has broken the rules in a way that’s proved to be irresistible to anyone still inclined towards keeping an actual paper notebook. His simple idea to play around with straight lines on a page has given us the Inspiration Pad, a book of pages featuring a suite of repetitive line patterns. Aside for simply enlivening a blank page, we see Thomasset’s line compositions as visual elements that may actually spur on an act of creative expression (whether written or drawn), or even be incorporated into one. Pretty inspirational, no matter which way you look at it.
