The Papersmith Series - Sophy Hollington

The Papersmith Series - Sophy Hollington

We quizzed Sophy on work life, how she got to where she is today and her creative process. Hi Sophy! Can you share with us a bit about the symbolism in the image you’ve created?

How did Rama Publishing...

The Papersmith Series - The Completist

completist [ kuh m-plee-tist ]. noun. a person who attempts to complete a collection or set, especially a collector who wants to collect an example of every item in a particular field. In other words, it's us with stationery. But how are we ever supposed to complete our stationery collection when people like Jana and Marko keep bringing out gorgeous new planners and cards? You're killing us here, guys. (But we love it really.) The Completist was founded at the beginning of 2018 by husband and wife duo Jana and Marko.
