About Us 

The Focus Journal is a product created by L’Atelier Coworking Vancouver, where Sabrina Cammas and Matej Rodela started its design process. After observing, researching and experiencing the new work reality of freelancers, contract workers, and solopreneurs they discovered a need for a journal that increases productivity while balancing it with well-being and happiness. 

This product wouldn't be possible without the support and feedback from the coworking community at L'Atelier and the 500 genrous backers that supported the projected via kickstarter. 

L'Atelier Coworking has partner with Covenant House Vancouver to donate $1 for each journal sold to homeless youth.
