Floppy disk post-its

Graphic Design

Feeling nostalgic for the old 3.5 inch floppy disk? They can still find a home on your desk thanks to Burak Kaynak's idea for Floppy Disk post-it-style notes

"In the last few years more and more instances of the floppy disks have been spotted online but I couldn't find anything interesting for myself," Kaynak says over on Behance. "So I came up with an idea; Disk-it."

Kaynak describes his idea as "An iconic alternative to the most popular yellow Post-it notes. Now the good old days are back!"

Thanks to Rebekha for the tip. More on Burak Kaynak here

@ Dave I wouldn't be surprised if you'd seen it before it looks really similar to me too. Still it is a cool idea.

I was in fact very busy with post-it last weekend covering whole walls with them for the O.K. Festival in Arnhem, thought that we could use these next time the expo is shown.

I will be smiling all week now - such a simple idea and, like all the best ideas, now I see it I don't why it hasn't been made before. I have no idea how I haven't thought of it before in fact - as I really am a fan of nostaglic retro design (Have a retro NES skin for my gameboy and everything).

Will these be going on sale soon? They seem a perfect candidate to appear on ThinkGeek in the next few months.

I look forward to seeing more of Kaynak's work - definately one to watch.

Lovely - gives a warm nostalgic feeling to someone like me who remembers the halcyon days of installing an application off half a dozen floppies, or even sending out a whole job on one just disk!

(90% of the designers in our studio won't be feeling it though - some of them were only born in the 80s!)

Great idea and I hope they go on sale soon as I will be definitely purchasing some for when I'm at the office. Can't wait to see what other great ideas Kaynak comes up with.
