Beija-Flor Notebook - Swallow Collection

Beija-flor is a Portuguese stationery brand, with a strong connection to Portuguese culture and illustration. Created in 2011, initially in a more relaxed project with the talented Raquel Graça (with whom I developed several notebooks), it is since 2014 a more comprehensive challenge, led by me - woman, mother and designer - Susana Gomes. I wouldn't exactly describe it as an authorial project, but the truth is that it is a reflection of my influences, experiences and tastes, so it follows a unique, delicate and simple language.

I create, without any kind of regularity or obligation, products that tell stories on paper - the ones from their origin and the ones they will hold later, in the hands of whoever gives them use and meaning.

I combine graphic design, illustration, typography, photography, traditional printing and bookbinding processes, to the most varied finishes.

I value what is Portuguese, quality, detail and record, as history and memory.

Hardcover notebook inspired by the Andorinha (Swallow), a recognized Portuguese symbol. Delicate and minimal, they are perfect for the ones who love resistant and durable notebooks.
