About

Hello,

Not your average stationery.
No white paper here.

Founder Chantal Gagnon playfully tearing large sheets of blue paper, while laughing with joy.

Socolo was founded in February 2021 by graphic designer and neurodiversity advocate, Chantal Gagnon and is run from her colourful studio in London. After not being able to find notebooks with colourful paper to accommodate her neurodiversity (dyslexia and Irlen syndrome), Chantal decided to create Socolo – a stationery company to help ease visual stress in adults. 

According to the NHS it’s estimated up to 1 in every 10 people in the UK has some degree of dyslexia. And visual stress affects about 50% of dyslexics, as well as epileptics, migraine sufferers, people with ME and MS, stroke and others.

Many optometrist's agree about 20% of the population experience visual stress to varying degrees. 

Going forward, Socolo aims to normalise the use of colour paper and help make workspaces more accommodating for the neurodiverse and light sensitive. 

All paper goods are made in the UK and use FSC certified paper.
