Block Notes: Colorful Tetris-Style, Sticky-Backed Note Pads

Block Notes: Colorful Tetris-Style, Sticky-Backed Note Pads: [ Filed under More & in the Industrial Design category ]

Ever tear off the corner of a sticky-backed piece of note paper because the default size was so much bigger than you needed? Alternatively: ever spend late nights slotting blocks into place on Tetranet? These may be the notes for you.

The simple square packs are familiar, but inside that boring box is a fun variety pack of neon yellow, orange, pink, blue, green and purple post-its that can be rearranged in any fashion you desire.

“Reminders can be boring, that’s more or less a fact – and video games can be entertaining. All that needs to be done is to combine the two into an interactive memory pad that fuses a way to take notes and memos, with the thrills and spills [of gaming] … and since it’s over ten years old it can be legitimately classed as ‘retro’, which means it can automatically be classed as cool, which means we can feel justified in producing these cool, retro, block sticky notes. Where is more apt to note down reminders than elements of old video games rendered in pale yellow paper – evoking memories from your youth while jogging your memory.” (Block Notes from Suck UK)
