The new Japanese stationery brand Stálogy instantly caught our eye because of their color-coded notepads and pens, but upon digging deeper we discovered a treasure trove much more valuable to designers: gridded translucent sticky notes. You can use your own imagination on how to use them, but the best use we've come up with so far is placing them over a physical or even digital sketch to experiment, critique or suggest new ideas. Need to make small adjustments? They come in a small size. Need to make large adjustments? They come in a large size. Ah, the simple bliss of experimenting on paper without committing to permanent marks.
