The Focus Journal by L’Atelier, 1 Week till our Kickstarter Launch!

We're one week away from launching The Focus Journal on Kickstarter!

After months of designing and testing, we're ready to share our creation with the world.

To make sure you don't miss our launch, subscribe to The Focus Journal's email list here. 

Minimal Design

The Focus Journal is a decluttered daily journal and was designed according to the premise of minimalism. That means the layout is very clean and has only the graphic elements that are really needed. It also doesn’t impose rigid systems, thought frames or methods. Its structure allows you to plan and execute according to your own way of thinking.

The pages are not dated which allows you to use the journal whenever. There is also a lot of free space for notes and sketches.
