Notemaker / Moleskine design competition

Customised Moleskine diaries (this image from Oh Joy)

Hey a friend just tipped me off about a little design competiton for Australian designers and/or design students...

NoteMaker’s Annual Design Competition gives you the opportunity to design your own embossed cover for an original Moleskine Diary!

Australian online stationary store Notemaker is looking for budding designers to come up with a design based on the theme “Your Notebook Your Life”. Your design doesn't have to be a pretty illustration... there are so many possibilities! Imagine a diary covered in architectural sketches, complex mathematical equations or even beautiful poetry?!

The winning design will be produced and sold as a limited edition Moleskine release! (The winner will also receive an iPod Nano and a Notemaker gift voucher).

It's not everyday you get the opportunity to customize your own classic Moleskine.... and it's an especially great opportunity for design students to build your design folio!

Entries close 1 June 2009. More info here.

Ps) Actually Notemaker has some quite cute things for sale on their website... definitely worth a little browse. Look what I found -

Penguin boxed set of 6 pencils - AU$14.95 and Penguin cover notebook - AU$19.95 (Aggh both currently sold out I now realise... sorry!)
