Talk about crazy ideas...
First, I need to tell you that these sketchbooks feel so nice. Like buttah! They lay flat when open, which is a big deal and the weight of the paper is nice and heavy.
The idea for Denik brand began when the founder was told that one of his drawings would make an awesome notebook cover. #lightbulbmoment From that comment he built a brand around creative, cause-based notebooks and set out to make a change. He and his friends started designing and binding notebooks and selling them wherever they could set up a table. And with each notebook sold, a portion of the proceeds was set aside to fund the building of a school in Mali. Africa. That was 8 years ago.
They continue to prove that art can change the world by continuing to help fund education projects worldwide and by paying the artists that create the cover designs. By pursuing creativity, you are making an impact.
