Travelling should be a pleasurable and fuss-free experience, yet we often find ourselves stuck in the recurring nightmare of storing and finding items on our travel. Despite the technologically advanced society we live in, there are some objects that have yet to be digitalized. Either that, or the benefits of carrying them physically greatly outweighs carrying them digitally, since you can never be sure about the accessibility to technology while overseas. Some examples of these objects include: your cash, tickets, brochures, postcards and cards. These items often reduce the quality of our experience as we fumble and tumble to look for them in our bags. Why should we let such a matter dampen our spirits? 

We decided it was time to put this frustration to an end. So we came up with a solution that puts a book and pockets together.

MEET DAYPOCKET

Daypocket is a book of pockets that helps you organize your travel miscellaneous prior and during your trip.

A PEEK INTO THE POCKETS

Daypocket has 3 pockets of different sizes, designed to cater to your small travel essentials.

Every corner edge - rounded to reduce dog-eared edges with increasing use.

YOUR SECURITY, OUR PRIORITY

Not only is it easy to slip your travel documents into the pockets, it is also extremely secure. Our pockets are designed around the idea that the strongest point of the book would be nearer to the bind itself; the pockets are also facing inwards. Have a peace of mind for you won't have to worry about the contents falling out!

PEN 'EM DOWN

Made of paper produced by a company that is certified responsible forestry and promotes sustainable forest management. Simply plan your itinerary and label your pockets directly on them, no extra tabs needed.

Daypocket also encourages creativity - just draw and sketch on them if you see anything interesting along the way, or if you are just bored and want something to doodle on.

THE PERFECT BIND

Bound by a band, every single page is detacheable, and re-attacheable. 

MAKE IT YOURS

Customise your book according to the length of your trip. 7 days trip? 7 Pages into the book. 14 days trip? 14 pages in. Easy.

LAY IT FLAT

Ever feel the discomfort when writing on books that cannot be laid completely flat? Fret not, Daypocket lies completely flat when opened up. 

RAINY DAY NO FEAR

Water-repellant fabric is used for Daypocket's cover - just in case your pages of pockets get wet on rainy days. 

Since every page is detachable, you can even bring the page to the front and use the book cover as a backing to write on. 

SWEET SPOT

Just a little bonus, there's even a slot for you to carry your pen!

HANDY AND COMPACT

Daypocket is the perfect book for you to bring on your travel and a little bigger than A5.

BEYOND TRAVEL

Think daypocket is only suited for travel? Think again. Daypocket is more than just for travel. Use it for your daily/weekly/monthly budgeting, collection of ideas or even planning of events.

Unlocked!

 

Want a mix of these pages and the original pages with 3 pockets? Sure you can get the best of both worlds! If this stretch goal is unlocked, a survey will be sent to you to select your pockets (in packs of 7) after our campaign ends.

THE PROCESS

Though a seemingly easy idea, we went through many rounds of considerations. We looked at materials, the binding, users' needs, and the smallest details.

After countless prototypes, we are proud to present our final design of daypocket to you.

Risks and challenges

Daypocket is the brainchild of a very dedicated team. A lot of time and effort has been pumped into the project, and we cannot be any more excited to share what we have created with you.

The main challenge we dealt with during this journey would be the designing process of the pockets. Every detail is critical, from the size of the pockets, to the orientation of the pockets on each page, to the material. Our goal? To make them the most intuitive for users.

Post funding, we will continue to look into the materials used for daypocket. We are constantly looking for alternative paper to reduce the thickness of daypocket, but we assure you that we will always consider the environmentally friendly factor before making decisions. We promise to keep you updated with our journey and should there be any delay in the delivery, you will definitely be the first to know.
