About this project

Hello I'm Nerissa, the creative designer behind One Hectare. I want to expand One Hectare's range of award winning designs and products to include an exciting new series of portrait style rectangular greeting cards, notebooks, art prints and a 2018 Planner.

Over the first five years of establishing One Hectare, my husband and I have self-funded the design, production and marketing of our products with a focus on square shaped designs. We have invested in building the One Hectare brand and product lines through many markets, trade shows and online because we believe in high quality design and materials utilising environmentally and socially responsible processes.

Each of our products on paper and wood are designed and printed in Adelaide, South Australia. We use 100% recycled papers, environmentally and socially responsible printers, and select high quality materials to beautifully showcase our designs. Each piece that we create not only represents our love of paper and natural materials, but also illustrates our belief that good design is sustainable. You can see for yourself on our website www.onehectare.com.au

The response from customers has been heart-warming, and two years ago we opened our first retail studio in Adelaide's premiere shopping high street, Regent Arcade, Rundle Mall. In addition to growing our existing product range, we would like to expand and create a brand new range of greeting cards, notebooks and art prints in a portrait (rectangular) shape - the Portrait Collection.

The new range will include:

Rectangular Portrait Style Greeting Cards

Sixteen new portrait style A6 size (105mm x 148mm) greeting card designs incorporating illustrations and colours which build on the One Hectare style and brand. They will be designed and made in Australia using premium imported 300gsm high white smooth 100% Post Consumer Waste paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

A3 Art Prints

Eight new portrait style A3 size (297mm x 420mm) art prints designs incorporating illustrations, fonts and colours consistent with the One Hectare style and brand. Designed and printed in Australia using premium imported 250gsm high white smooth 100% Post Consumer Waste paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

  A5 Notebooks

New A5 size notebook designs (saddle stitched, 64 blank internal pages) like the samples below. They make great practical but stylish Christmas presents. Notebooks will use premium 300gsm high white smooth paper & 100gsm internal pages made from 100% Post Consumer Waste certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

 2018 Planner Notebook

A new A5 size 2018 Planner Notebook (saddle stitched with 48 internal pages) similar to our 2017 Planner below. A simple and affordable 12 month Planner from January to December featuring our favourite designs each month to make you smile. Additional pages are lined for note making and its thick paper cover makes it less bulky and easy to carry in your bag. Planners will use premium 300gsm high white smooth paper & 120gsm internal pages made from 100% Post Consumer Waste certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

I'm really hoping you can be part our One Hectare journey by helping to fund these new exciting product designs. In return I'm offering a selection of unique personalised rewards for you to enjoy and for me to say thank you for your support. I'm happy to receive any suggestions for additional reward suggestions that you may like. 

Our target is deliberately modest and reaching it would be greatly appreciated. Going beyond it would provide an opportunity for me to offer more fabulous new product designs for you.

I'm looking forward to sharing my journey with you, and I'll be updating this page with new designs as I create them. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at the first card design from the new Portrait Collection...

Risks and challenges

We established One Hectare in 2011 and have been successfully designing and developing our products locally in Adelaide for over five years.

Consequently we have well established relationships with our local printers and suppliers, enabling One Hectare to consistently provide high quality products to consumers via its own retail studio, online shop and wholesale to stockists in Australia and New Zealand.

Our designs and products have been nominated for and won a number of awards including the Australian Graphic Design Association, The Adelaide Art Directors Club and Desktop Magazine. Our products have also been featured in numerous Australian publications including In Style Magazine, Frankie Magazine, Desktop Magazine and Inside Out Magazine, along with many online blogs.

We believe our experience makes this a very low risk high reward project.
