When in Manila, there are online shops that offer unique and customizable items. One of them is @theartbrew, which I came across with when I was browsing for phone cases on Instagram. It’s a gold mine for those who want to protect their gadgets in style. Notebook aficionados will also find themselves double-tapping @theartbrew’s products. Here are three things I’m currently using from The Art Brew.
1.) The Art Brew’s customizable notebooks
Instead of opting for a simple black notebook, you could have calligrapher Lora Cuevas from the The Art Brew customize something for you. Lora first started to get into calligraphy in September 2012. She attended one of Fozzy Castro’s workshops and started a business where she could apply her newfound calligraphy skills.
I wanted to have a notebook for my blog, The Passion Project. I didn’t really have a specific design in mind, but I’ve always liked how gold looks like in contrast with black. I told this to Lora, who used gold paint to write my blog’s name on the black notebook. It turned out to be so much better than how I imagined it would be!
The papers of the notebook are smooth and lined. The whole notebook looks so neat, I’m “saving” it for 2016. I haven’t had the courage to write on it yet!
2.) The Art Brew’s wide selection of phones.
I’m currently using a Sony Xperia Z3. It’s difficult to find phone cases for it. I’ve been to Sony shops and malls, and was not satisfied with the ones I saw. For a few months, I settled with using my phone without a case. I was surprised that The Art Brew has a lot of phone models to choose from–complete with customizable designs! Once again, I chose my blog name to dress up my phone. The design you see at the back of the phone was especially designed by The Art Brew–it’s not a font I randomly chose.
3.) The Art Brew’s customizable laptop decals
There are a lot of fonts and colors to choose from for your laptop decals. I found these laptop decals to be useful. My laptop functions as my office, inspiration board, library, and school binder all wrapped up in one. And because of The Art Brew, it’s now a mobile ad, too.
It was unintentional, but because I had my link and blog name on my laptop, friends and acquaintances I came across with asked about what the laptop decals meant.
Initially, The Art Brew only sold customized calligraphed stickers for planners. Then, Lora tried to use Vinyl. Lora asked her followers if they’d be interested in customized cases with calligraphed stickers, and the responses were positive. Because of this, Lora is able to express her creativity in calligraphy through her business. Customers are able to carry personalized pouches, gadgets, and notebooks that are always extra thoughtful as gifts.
