Drop Around is a Japanese design office based in Hokkaidō by the volcanic caldera of Lake Tōya in Japan. Their designs and paper products are based on the theme of “making and working” as is illustrated in their subsidiary company, M & W. Drop Around’s products, such as their popular Japanese banknote sized receipts, are made with the utmost attention to detail. This Drop Around x Classiky collaboration shows the beauty of simple and organizational paper products. These Function Paper Pads by Drop Around feature brightly-covered pads of different types of paper that you might find useful for note taking in various situations. The pages in each pad tear out easily for you to paste in a journal or tape/tack up on your wall.
The Copy Paper Pad includes 75 sets of blank carbon paper, which can be use creatively for collaging and scrapbooking or functionally during a meeting or quick brainstorming session with a partner so that a quick copy of a sketch can be made for each of you to take and reference. A handy copy tool for those who prefer pen and paper.
The Weekly Paper Pad includes 75 blank weekly layouts (Monday to Sunday) to keep track of daily to-do's, appointments and tasks. The paper is a soft, textured paper reminiscent of a delicate construction paper.
The Map Paper Pad includes 75 sheets of an interesting design. On the right, you will find a grid pattern and on the left, a blank section with section titles for Date, From and To, as well as a middle section for Time. According to Classiky, this paper pad was designed for you to use to take notes and jot down a quick map as you are taking a walk. Instead of having to look down at your phone, print out a larger street map, use your creativity to make your own map to keep track of where you've been, what landmarks you have seen and passed and what was memorable about your journey. Stay present as you are walking.
