We believe that penning down ideas and goals is the best way to get you moving; there is just something about the pen and notebook which technology cannot replace. We believe that we designed one of the best planners in the market which helps you plan, organize, complete daily tasks and achieve your goals. We believe a notebook should be simple and easy to use.

A notebook that reminds you, a notebook that keeps you on track. The perfect notebook worthy to be your companion.

One Big Task, Three Small Tasks System 

Personally, I've always had crazy ideas and also the habit of creating a To Do list check the boxes once I completed each task. This system helped me to get things done and be more productive through the day.

I then stumbled upon a system called "One Big Thing" online, created by Nick Burka, which gave my checkbox system another dimension. By giving priority to one major task and 3 smaller ones, it allowed me to break down tasks into smaller bits, making them easier to accomplish.

You will also get a sense of satisfaction each time a box is checked. Oh yeah.

What is stone paper?

Waterproof and works like regular paper, stone paper is an alternative to the wood paper. It does not use trees, water, chlorine, acids, or petroleum in the manufacturing process. It is made from calcium carbonate (CaCO3), one of the most common substances on Earth. CaCO3 is also a natural byproduct of water and limestone.

Stone paper is made up of 80% calcium carbonate, grounded into fine powder and mixed together with a small amount of high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

Planner Content

Choose between the planner or the notebook. The Eco Planner is for the goal achievers who wants to get things done. The Eco Notebook is for the creative people to pen down your wildest ideas and let your imagination take over.

 Why 6 months and not 1 year?

We designed the planner with only 6 months to plan for a very specific reason: We want to create the urgency for you to complete your tasks and achieve your goals in a shorter period of time. 

With lesser months, you have to reduce your procrastination time and squeeze in more tasks to work towards your goal. Less months equal lesser time for you to push back what needs to be done!

Manufacturing Preparations

For this notebook, we have been working with our manufacturing partner for over 8 months now. The initial months were filled with frustrations due to numerous failed prototyping. We flew down to the factory twice in the past 8 months to meet with the factory staff, to get the notebook developed into what we wanted. 

Initial prototypes and final version.

For our test batch, we have produced 30 notebooks. At this point, we are confident that working with a rather large scale factory specializing in notebooks, they will meet our QC standards and deliver the notebooks on time, as usual!  

After the Kickstarter campaign:  

1. Once Kickstarter funding has ended, we will be sending out surveys to collate the necessary information. We will then place the full order for raw materials and will schedule for the production of Eco planners and notebooks.  

2. We will be travelling to be on site with our manufacturing partners to conduct the QC process, to ensure our manufacturing timeline is not delayed.  

3. When the notebooks are completely manufactured, we will assemble them in the packaging and ship them all to their respective owners, you!

Our Story

Modest Mark works in a humble studio based in Singapore. We started out designing minimalist wallets, launching our first Kickstarter campaign in 2014 and was very well received. 

We continued to redesign and innovate on slim minimalist wallets. Eventually, we find ourselves limiting our creative juices to just slim wallets; we could do more. Since then, we have been designing, prototyping all sorts of crazy ideas, bringing the best of our innovations to you. 

THIS IS MODEST MARK 

Our creations are built upon the principles of “One Thing Less” - One thing less to carry around, one thing less to worry about. We are serious about what we do, designing everyday carry goods with you in mind; reducing the unnecessary so you can focus on what really matters. In doing so, we hope to improve your productivity in your day to day activities. Welcome to the Modest Mark family.

We challenge ourselves to do the thinking, innovating to create products we believe will improve your daily situations. All you have to do is to enjoy the simplicity derived from the complexity.

Risks and challenges

Once Eco gets funded, we will begin to finalize all the details with our suppliers and manufacturers, even before the funding reach us. To our best ability, we will make sure all controllable risks are taken of, so that all unnecessary delays will be mitigated. Our team is experienced and has been delivering campaigns on time. Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always unexpected challenges that may present itself during the process of productions. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible, ahead of schedule.
