Behind the scenes

Aleks Pietrzykowska and Kim de Haas started Els & Nel in 2012 with the Weekly Journal: a planner designed exactly the way they wanted to use it, cause none of the existing journals were perfect.

They say work and pleasure intertwine in our daily lives. Flexible conditions demand a flexible mind, adaptable to having multiple projects as well as a sudden change of plans. Being more organized about work means more flexibility for play. By re-thinking and challenging existing formats Els & Nel hopes to offer a functional alternative.

Els & Nel stands for problem-solving design and a vision that is characterized by simplicity and usability. ‘Keepin’ it neat’ is a great slogan to underline it.
