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.
The Weekly journal is a hit that will bring some clarity into your daily business.
The Weekly Journal 2016 has a hardcover with rounded corners and includes a ruler, ribbon bookmark and envelope. The additional note pages in the back give you even more space to organise your daily life, from lists to ideas. And to keep an overview of your long term plans, a removable monthly booklet is included.
Curious about the quality? All the products are made in Amsterdam with attention to quality and craftsmanship. Els & Nel works with carefully selected papers from the traditional Italian paper manufacturer Fedrigoni.
