Since Notely began back in 2014, we’ve been collaborating with some of our favourite contemporary artists to create notebooks, journals, wall planners and more – helping make beautiful art more accessible and sharing new talent with our community of stationery lovers.
As an artist and designer herself, fostering this sense of collaboration and connection is a key reason founder Jenica Smith started Notely. We think there’s something truly magical about joining forces with others, and look forward to many more Artist Collections in the future.
