Weekly Wishlist: 2018 Designer Diaries
We round-up our top designer diaries to help you get organised and stay stylish in 2018.
Whilst everyone is focusing on Christmas at the moment, the new year is fast approaching too. Before you know it, everyone will be making lists of New Years resolutions they will mostly likely never keep. Among the classic list of resolutions – as well as drinking more water and exercising more – is getting more organised, so this week’s wishlist is dedicated to helping you do so in style.
Here are 7 of our top designer diaries for 2018….
Oxbridge Diary by Katie Leamon (£28)
Whilst our first pick is the most minimal design of the bunch, it could also be the most unique. The simple pale pink and dark green journal can be personalised with your initials. Other design details – such as gold gilt edging and a ribbon page marker – offset the graphic block colours and add a touch of sophistication.
2018 Diary by Oliver Bonas (£23)
Though minimal on the outside, this Oliver Bonas diary is maximal on the inside. The cover simply reads “Work Hard, Play Hard & Be Kind” in metallic foil but the inside is crammed with colourful artwork. Floral designs, abstract patterns and cactus illustrations are interspersed with inspirational quotes to make this more than just a diary. The journal aims to not just act as a space for you to write down tasks but to inspire you to achieve them too.
Midnight Jungle Diary by Ohh Deer (£8.95)
Ohh Deer’s 2018 diary collection are all beautifully illustrated. Their Midnight Jungle diary designed by Natasha Durley is our top pick from the range. Featuring an array of tropical plants and wildlife, the design masterfully transitions 2017’s popular tropical trend into the new year. The trend’s usual green tones have been replaced with pink and blue hues to create a fresh design fit for all seasons.
Mini Calendar by Risotto Studio (£8)
Though not technically a diary, Risotto’s mini calendar is small enough for you to carry around…so we’re counting it. Risograph printed with 6 different ink colours, the calendar has become one of Risotto’s most popular products. Each month has a unique pattern designed in-house by the Risotto team to add a splash of pattern-filled fun to your year.
Planning Book by Present & Correct (£11.50)
Present & Correct have come up trumps with an impressive collection of diaries for 2018, earning them the last few spots on this week’s wishlist. First up, their “Monthly Planning Book” diary is as stylish as it is no-nonsense. The sleek statement journal comes in white, forest green or fog grey. And it’s inside pages are as well designed and straight forward as it’s cover.
Dial Perpetual Calendar by Present & Correct (£24)
If all you need a diary for is to help you keep track of what the date is then perhaps Present & Correct’s perpetual calendar is for you. Simply move the dials as time passes to keep track of where we are in the year. As it was designed and built to last, the dial calendar can be used year after year.
Masking Tape Calendar by Present & Correct (£23.50)
The final and most innovative design in our round-up is another clever Present & Correct product. Their new set of masking tapes lets you turn any surface into a calendar. With different rolls for the day, months, dates and notes you can construct your calendar in any way you want. If you are searching for a fully flexible and visually pleasing way to plan your 2018, then look no further.
