“So far as a design studio we’ve reinvented the humble Foliage notebook for everyday use and received lots of great feedback from our lovely backers. When we create our designs we use a number of tools and it was while we were designing some of the others that we thought it was about time we looked at one of those tools in a new light. The Ruler is a classic example of a design that’s remained unchanged for generations. Aside from evolving from wood to metal and then to plastic, the core design is the same as it was when our grandparents went to school. The key change we’ve added is a 30° slope on the ruler’s face. It’s a simple, yet incredibly effective, update and it makes the 30° Ruler soooo much easier to use. The 30° Ruler does away with teeny measurements, instead opting for large fonts and clear indications. ”
