I'm a busy woman. I write a lot of lists and my husband's CPD obligations function as a veritable bazaar for my domestic stationery replenishment needs. While everyone else is hoovering up biscuits during the break in powerpoint slides, he is under instructions to 're-home' as many gratis pens and pads as he can stuff in his bag.
Usually though, these items never leave our house as they are so dull and functional. However a number of his recent stationery hauls have included items with some semblance of design. I've even gone so far as to put them in my handbag - for use in public.
Perhaps we need an RoF 'Branded Stationery – Law Firm of the Year' award to help encourage more of this sort of thing?
I know how you all love an award.
try and kick start the competitiveness, here's what has pride of
place in my Furla tote at the moment:
Osborne Clarke pens
Chunky and colourful.
They look like something you'd buy (if anyone actually bought pens). Collect the set!
Seriously – who designed this? It's gorgeous.
(My own pencil and eraser – for styling purposes, you understand).
I look forward to hearing from you about those awards RoF ...
