For the Art Directors Club of Germany, brandbook developed a notebook entitled “Break the Grids”. 80 experimental and inspiring grids, all printed in royal blue, make up the book block. Among these, you will find subtle lines, structures, dots, honeycombs, or isometric forms. The innovative book cover equals a fashion statement: a fabric lined with miniature mirroring tiles, which definitely has never been used for notebooks before, but comes from the catwalks of Haute Couture. You could also easily associate a mirror ball with this special material.

The perfect link between the extraordinary cover and the book block is the edge colouring in shiny silver.

The appeal noted in the front endpaper will encourage the notebook user to break the layout grids and rules in order to create great new works. The Bill Bernbach quote has it in a nutshell: „Rules are what the artist breaks“.
