Jovial [joh-vee-uh l]
Endowed with or characterized by a hearty, joyous humor or a spirit of good-fellowship

Formerly known as VYNY Crafts, Jovial is a small art studio based in Singapore directed by Victoria Yue. Jovial aims to produce vibrant and cheerful designs that brings people together to develop a sense of joy and wonder for the good things that are around them. 

Jovial produces handmade notebooks in their home-studio and designs tote bags and prints. All their notebooks are handbound with hand painted covers making each book unique and one-of-a-kind.

Jovial notebooks come in sizes A5 and A6; with blank sketchbook paper made in Italy. The papers inside are a 90gsm sketch paper with a light grain and pale ivory shade. Making it ideal for pencil, charcoal, graphite, sanguine, pastel and gesso.

The cover is made of 300gsm watercolour paper making for a sturdy cover that is easy to customise! After every design, the covers are coated with a matte fixative to help protect the lovely hand painted designs from water.

About the Artist

Victoria Yue (23) comes from a tiny island city known as Singapore and enjoys making items by hand! As a child, Victoria enjoyed working with a hands-on approach. Be it fixing an IKEA furniture by herself or assembling pieces of a puzzle together, she has always loved to put small items together to make it into something bigger and better. 

In early 2015, she made her first notebook as a gift for a friend and the gift was met with an enthusiastic response. As such, bookbinding quickly developed into a hobby and she took a step further to sell her handmade notebooks on both online platforms and in art markets. Victoria loves seeing her customers' faces light up whenever they find a notebook that they like and the satisfaction of stitching a brand new notebook together. She also loves to draw, paint and hang out with her amazing friends on a weekend.
