A simple, elegant handwritten note feels like the epitome of both refinement and cool in this age of email and iChat. Herman Yu's note cards capture this vibe, and to write on one makes us feel like a real grown-up, the hip kind we always imagined we'd be.
Herman's botanical themes are rendered in a slightly fuzzy, muted way, and the forms of her goods are all carefully chosen — we find the tall card especially thoughtful for us long-winded writers.
We picked up the calendar, and we're enjoying 12 months of her calming designs.
