Beautiful, simple, easy-to-use layouts help you organize your memories well.

This journal offers two templates: make a list, or leave detailed notes. How you fill them in is totally up to you. This journal is designed to be customized easily based on your own interests.

The first template is a simple list : Fill this up quickly with your favorites. Choose any subject you like: movies, music, books, etc. Use the list template for only a certain category of memories, or collect as many types of memories as you want within the lists.

The second template allows you to take detailed notes. Describe your favorite memories in greater detail here. The more details you record, the clearer your memory in the future!

Hello Kickstarter! I'm Min, a designer in NYC. This journal grew out of very personal needs. I started my daily journaling a few years ago, and have found it to be beneficial in many ways. I records my life history. It preserves my personal memories, and help me constantly reevaluate who I am, where I am, and how I should move forward.

Even though I journal regularly, it is sometimes hard for me to track my progress when I revisit past memories. I find that all my recorded events are dispersed, and my journals just become a large amount of text over time. Think about it: a daily journal needs 365 pages per year. After 10 years, that becomes 3,650 pages. How do you track your favorites well across thousands of journal pages?

So I started to find a better way to document my life over time. I've spent a lot of time working to create the optimal format for a life-long journal. A Collection of My Favorite Memories is my first attempt at pursuing this goal.

I need your funding and your encouragement to make this journal a reality. Thank you so much for checking out my project; your support is greatly appreciated!

Most of the funds will be used to cover production costs. This pays for printing, binding, the Kickstarter fees, packaging, and shipping. I'm now working with several printing vendors to make this journal at a high quality and an affordable price. The estimated production timeline is as follows:

  • Kickstarter Campaign: March 30 - April 13 (10 days) 
  • Production: May - July 
  • Shipping: August - September

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is manufacturing for mass production. The considerations includes: finding quality paper stock, printing, binding, quality control, packaging, shipping to recipients all over the world. I’ll do my best to ensure that I deliver what I promise and keep everyone informed of the progress of the project.
