The Manuscript Planner is a de-cluttered and minimal planner.

It gives you plenty of space with just enough structure.

We are working with an eco-conscious manufacturer from South Korea who uses soy based ink and recycled paper. They have been making stationery with an environmental focus for seventeen years!   

The paper selection process — sifting through samples that are certified recycled!
The paper selection process — sifting through samples that are certified recycled!

We are huge stationery aficionados, and noticed there aren't many variations in planner design available on the market.

In January 2017, we started designing our own planner. After two years of testing and re-designing, we are super proud of what we came up with!

We wanted the planner to feel really breathable and open, almost like a blank canvas. This guided our decisions to pick a neutral color for the cover, have exposed binding, and creatively make space within a traditional planner format. 

The Manuscript Planner is made for Dec 2019 to Dec 2020. It is A5 (5.8" x 8.3"), has exposed binding, and lays flat. The planner has a soft flexible cover. Just for this Kickstarter, each planner will come with a reusable clear cover (that is removable as well). The Manuscript Planner is made with recycled paper, and has a small touch of rose gold foil on the front cover.

The final product may look slightly different. 

 Each reward comes with the Manuscript Planner and reusable clear cover. You can get just the planner and cover, or add on some other great rewards for a full package of stationery and goodness.

 A workbook for adults written by a doctoral occupational therapist, and beautifully designed and illustrated. 72 pages of introspection, educational bits, and activities to help you envision your future and plan out concrete paths to get there.


 Two clean and minimal notebooks with 40 pages each. The Numbers Notebook is an eggshell color stapled booklet with 30 numbered pages and 10 dotted note pages. Great for journaling, using as a mini month planner, or even a recipe book! The Half Full Notebook is a white stapled booklet that is half lined. Reminiscent of journals used by kids in school, this is a creative notebook that could be used for note taking, sketching, or travel journaling.

 A manuscript is a work in progress, an unfinished story.

The manuscript planner is your work in progress, an unfinished story of your year. 


 Hi, we’re Nick and Steph! We’re a married couple from Los Angeles. Nick is a doctoral occupational therapist, and Steph is a graphic designer and illustrator. 

Under the name Totteoki Design, we started selling minimalist notebooks and Goal Setting Workbooks this past year at local markets and trade shows. Here are pictures of us at a few shows around Los Angeles!

 Totteoki is a Japanese word that means something you value and have set aside in reserve. We hope that the things we produce will add value to the lives of others!

Risks and challenges

The entire planner is created, and the file is submitted to the manufacturer. We met with them earlier this year, and picked out every detail from the material of the cover paper to the weight of the inside pages.

We have a rough timeline built out based on the manufacturer’s previous experiences, but there may be unforeseen circumstances that cause delays. We are starting our Kickstarter halfway through 2019 in order to give us a wide enough buffer, so we can get the 2020 planners to our backers in time.
