is run by an neurodivergent graphic designer.

Socolo was founded in February 2021 by graphic designer and neurodiversity advocate, Chantal Gagnon and is run from her colourful studio in London.

Review from our founder, Lauren Pearson:

From a personal perspective, visual stress has been attributed to some of the challenges that accompany being neurodivergent. I was also diagnosed with strabismus and wore glasses for half of my life until I had corrective surgery last year. However, I still felt the overwhelming stimulation amidst the white paper.

Recently, I had the opportunity to test out some of Chantal’s notebooks which I absolutely adored. The colourful paper was both visually appealing and beautiful. I found the paper to be high quality and did not overstimulate my eyes as I wrote on the notebooks.

The smooth paper offered a pleasurable writing experience.

As an avid writer myself, it was so eye-opening to have a product that catered to my individual needs. I would highly recommend these notebooks to anyone, especially neurodivergent individuals like me.
