The combination of coloring sketchbook and portfolio

“Coloring Folio A4” is the development of a product for resource recovery by rethinking about the definition of the sketchbook. The question is: do users make use of the sketchbook we’re using in everyday life, as it worth or not. and does it really related to the behavior of the users.

Based on research, we found that the users of this type of sketchbook will rip off the paper from the book and put a piece of paper on the drawing board before use. When users ripped off all papers inside, they will just dispose the unused covers.

We design the sketchbook that can be re-use the front and back covers to decrease the waste by developing the sketchbook to make the A4 size folder on the back side. So that the users can continue using the sketchbook as a portfolio folder even after they used all papers. The special thing about “Coloring Folio A4” is that it’s been design especially for coloring by Copic / other magic pen. The back cover can be expanded and used as a paper pad for coloring to avoid the leakage to paper below. The covers of sketchbook are printed by soy ink which is eco-friendly.
