we would like to say thank you to everyone who took part in our moleskinerie blog contest. we received over 2,000 entries and the submissions were so beautiful and compelling, that in addition to selecting one winner, we are also showcasing a shortlist of the best entries and their respective designers on

the moleskine team, along with judges pablo and birgit, reviewed all of the entries and although the decision was very difficult, we narrowed it down to a shortlist of 117 designers and the one designer we felt best embodied moleskine brand core values of contemporaneity, sensibility, functionality, aesthetics, execution.

as we’ve shared previously, this contest has been a learning experience for us– and we thank this community for the conversation and open thoughts. we continue in our pledge not to make commercial use of any of these entries, including the winner’s, and all of the designers featured will retain full rights to their entries.   please help us celebrate the sylvain’s success, as well as all of the entries submitted by the participating designers. it is an honor to share your creativity on our blog.
