Gifts for Creatives, Graphic Designers & Artists – Day Ten

Posted inDesign Gifts

Instead of the usual gift guide, PRINT asked some of the most creative people we know what they are excited to give (and get) this year. Look for daily gift inspiration through the end of December.

Ugly Books from designer Jon Contino. I love these vibrant, multicoloured notebooks and their delightful colourway names (Wharf Rat, Devil’s Night, Pink Moon!). You can grab a Mystery 3-Pack for a fun, surprise mix. Their Instagram @uuglybookss highlights the beautiful ways people have filled the books, too, for inspiration.

Prints or cards by illustrator Samantha Curcio (pictured). She has such a playful, fun style that lends itself very well to sending a loved one a note to let them know you’re thinking of them. The posters are fantastic for kids’ rooms. She also has a sweet children’s book called Hello Every Body! that I’ve given to several friends with little ones.

The Closure Pin is a cheeky pin that I made based on a real text message an adult man sent me. Great for all your inside jokes and nihilistic jean jackets.”
