Pocket monster


Series of 4 notebooks with ultra cute covers that mimic sweet facial expressions. 

Using a simple origami fold of the cover, I created an inner pocket used to feed the monster. Inside it are cards of the Emotion Monster portraying a wide range of facial expressions. The child can switch between cards according to his mood, creating an ongoing relationship between him and the notebook. The pocket can also be used to store secrets, stationery equipment, stickers, and so on. The Emotion Monster encourages the child to use the notebook, evokes his imagination, serves as an additional classmate and makes his experience of use exciting and fun! 



When you design for children, you approach

design through the mind of a child: different,

more playful ideas start to rise to the surface.
