Beija-Flor Notebook - Garden of Memories

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.

It is in the garden of camellias, roses and hydrangeas that I find many of my most beautiful memories. And it was with these (and other) flowers that Raquel Graça created this delicate and unique garden. Durable notebook with bookmark ribbon and expandable pocket.
