The next goal: Vibrant products that last
The fact that the creativity of the two JuliFoli® founders is sparking up again comes as no surprise: ‘We already have some ideas about how we’re going to develop JuliFoli® in the future. One area we would like to work on with Sihl in the future is the issue of biodegradable material. We want to give our customers a living product that helps us work towards improving our impact on people and the environment anew every day’, say Grassmann and Braun. In any case, the value of JuliFoli® has most definitely been confirmed by the market and the industry: the brand received the ‘Product of the Year 2015’ innovation prize from Verband der PBS-Markenindustrie (the German paper, office and writing supplies industry association) in 2015, plus it was nominated for the German Design Awards 2016 and won the Design Plus Award 2016. For their UNTERWEGS-series of German and international metropolises and for their entire concept, the young aspiring company also received the Nonbook Award 2016 of the Frankfurt Book Fair.
