June 2016

Toolss is a lifestyle coffee shop locates in Shek Kip Mei, Hong Kong. Apart from good coffee, Toolss' mission is to bring a paper and pen living back to the modern digital age. Stocked with writing tools such as stationery and paper goods, the selection is carefully curated by the owner.


In June 2015, a small collaboration project was born between us. I was given the chance to design a series of writing goods ranging from tote bags, notebooks and postcards. The design theme coherent with the objective of Toolss.


The collection has drawn media coverages and praises from lifestyle editors.
