    DESIGN LOOP LAUNCHES PRODUCTS OFFERING

    A FRESH TAKE ON ORGANIZING YOUR LIFE

    NEW YORK, July 31, 2019 design loop, a boutique product design and development company, is pleased to announce exclusive fall collections from lifestyle blogger, Wit & Delight and Minneapolis-based artist, Ashley Mary. The new collections will debut at the upcoming NY NOW summer 2019 market and be on display in the design loop booth in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from August 11-14, 2019. 

    What can I expect to see at the market this summer? We’re glad you asked! Let’s start with the Wit & Delight 2020 Planner. One of our favorite features includes the “daily check-in” where you take a second to reflect on how the day went. Kate Arends passion for wellness shines through in this product so much that this linen book-bound planner is officially a finalist for the NY NOW Best New Product Awards. 

    Wit & Delight comes to the rescue this summer with a variety of note-taking products to stay organized and inspired simultaneously. Her linen, hard cover Stay on Track Desktop Notepad has weekly planning sheets broken down by goals and projects to pace yourself during the week and accomplish what you set out to do. Goodbye Sunday Scaries, hello productivity.

    Perfect for list-making and remembering that great idea you had in the parking lot, the Write it Down Notepad will be your favorite purse-sized companion. Its big sister - the “Large Desktop Notepad” is (literally) bound to be your favorite new desk accessory.  With 100 perforated sheets - the room for scribbling is almost endless.

    The best-selling Note to Self Journals are back and better than ever with added features and plenty of pages to keep track of your best ideas. Featuring a linen book-bound cover, gilded pages, a pocket, bookmark and more, we have a feeling this notebook will continue to be a staple for journal lovers everywhere.

    As for artist Ashley Mary, believe us when we say she did not come to play with this collection. Her brightly-colored Vegan Leather Notebooks come in four different colors with 192 monochromatic blank pages. Kiss those lines goodbye! Who doesn’t love a good blank page to doodle on?

    The Saddle-Stitch Notebooks really put Ashley Mary’s artful style on display. With gorgeous patterned covers and interiors, this notebook sets itself apart. Whoever needs a pop of color in their office space or bedside table - this one’s for you.

    For the doodlers in the world, Ashley Mary’s Happy Illustration Pad is exactly that. A cheerful spot to scribble and draw throughout your day featuring a peppy-pattern and pink spiral. This pad has 60 perforated blank white sheets. Let’s get to scribbling!
