AllSwell Creative and Brooklyn Beach have joined forces to launch a collaboration designed to encourage creativity - a blank notebook and co-branded limited edition beach blanket set. Inspired by the half lined (WRITE) and half unlined (DRAW) pages of the AllSwell notebook. The blanket is comprised of three panels - one blank, one striped, and one hand-dyed blue to match the color of the AllSwell logo. Bum to sand, pen to paper: AllSwell and Brooklyn Beach set the scene for a moment of creative escape.
Notebook: 8.5 x 6.5 inches and made of recycled materials.
Blanket: 55 x 90 inches, 100% yarn-dyed, absorbent handkerchief linen with 4 underside corner pockets, 9in deep & 19in wide you scoop sand in and anchor it on windy beaches, as well as a 8in x 10in underside security pocket to hide small valuables. Also includes a handy 7in x 13in pouch that the blanket fits snugly in for travel near and far.
10% of proceeds from the collaboration will benefit Surfrider Foundation NYC Chapter. All sales are final, please.
AllSwell is a passion project launched to encourage creativity in all its forms. It’s the brainchild of Laura Rubin, founder and creative director of the communications agency Left Left Right (LLR) Consulting.
While the world has become undeniably digital, research shows that putting pen to paper is linked to increased wellbeing, and basically a boosted brain. It is physiologically, emotionally and mentally beneficial. (For the curious, read more here.)
Born from a morning surf check with uninspiring results, Rubin decided to sit on the beach and journal instead. “Swell or no swell, all’s well.” As an inveterate scribbler and journal-keeper, Rubin wanted to invite more people to reap its benefits.
Take a moment to express yourself in an utterly private way. No “likes”, no judgments. Just you, your ideas, pen, and paper. Creativity unplugged.
