As it was mentioned in my previous post about my current career path, Gypsy Dreams product will be expanding over the next year. To start with, I’ve listed 9 new notebook designs, that you can either buy individually for £2.95, or as a set of 3 for £8.80! A few days ago I featured the Gypsy Dreams notebooks series – Jot It Down on the blog. Now, let’s have a look into the Night Sky notebook series!
When Gypsy Dreams began, it was just a humble tumblr, but I always wanted it to be something bigger. I had a vision of what it would look like and what I would sell, and the Night Sky notebook series encompasses that vision completely. I love the contrast between the dark and the light, the night sky and the stars and moon that shine through that darkness.
My first ever design for Gypsy Dreams was the Abstract Geometric notebook, and from there Night Sky developed into the first Gypsy Dreams notebook collection. I love abstract geometrics and alchemy graphic icons, so this is where it all started. As much as notebooks are for planning and writing about real life, I imagine the Night Sky series being used for documenting dreams, poetry and what you personally see in the night sky.
I love constellations, and anything star-related, which is where the Constellation Notebook design came from. This started off as a whole constellation collection, but being the perfectionist that I am, I decided to team my notebooks up by colour palette. You’ll be seeing a lot more constellations in the future though, so they won’t go to waste! Which is your favourite constellation? Why not share yours with me on Twitter or Instagram @gypsy_dreams_ I’ll try my best to do designs involving each of them!
The last one has become a favourite – Phases of the Moon. Did anyone catch a glimpse of the eclipse a couple of months ago? I sat out on my balcony, with a hot cup of tea and it was the calmest I’d felt in a long time. The moon is mysterious with powerful effects on the earth. The visual effect it has on us is also very powerful and that’s why I wanted to design something to show that. The different shades of white, grey and lilac are just a few variations of the colours we see in the moon depending on the phase and where we are on earth.
