Stylish isometric notepad by Seoul-based designers kam-kam:
It seems that the small as well as the great, in the creative field, are derived from a simple drawing.
This isometric-grid notepad, named XYZ note, would be a good start for such creative three-dimensional drawings.
The cover of the note is a clear plastic with a cube-pattern filled, which partly reveals drawings on the first page. Because of its transparency, the drawing underneath the cover completes the cover’s image. You end up having a new cover every time you rip off the first page.

This animation is co-produced by Studio YOG and LOBOTOMY.
