[Planner Personalities Series]

I’m so excited!!! I am embarking on a new series called – ‘Planner Personalities Series’.

It’s been an idea that’s been going around in my mind for some time. I am going to create profiles on each of the sixteen planner personalities, and I absolutely believe that one of them will resonate as being your planner style. Here is the first one – The Elegant.


The elegant planner style belongs to the classy people of this world. Their style is very eye catching because each element of their planner is given a voice and plenty of space to shine. They truly know and embrace their own look and vibe and don’t apologise for it. This type of planner is quite rare. It looks amazing, we know it and they know it! Here are the elements of the elegant planner:


The pages of this planner are certainly not filled to the brim. They prefer one simple statement piece on the page and don’t clutter up any of the rest of the page. They like that statement to stand out loud and clear. They very much subscribe to the motto ‘less is more’. They may not bother with doing different themes each more, they might be more likely to have a favourite thing to draw, such as flowers, and they may just stick to drawing different types of flowers throughout their full notebook.


The pages of this planner are styled and designed; the decoration is key to the overall look. It’s not just about function here, they like a certain curated art or pattern aesthetic and that is important to this planner. It may actually take quite a long time to create the art on these pages, but it’s absolutely worth it, because they feel inspired and motivated by the art or pattern they see.


The pages of this planner will not be ‘foiled’ with colour. No. Colour is noise to the monochrome planner person. They prefer the quietness of a planner that has a look of sophistication and neutralness. The neutral look may be light or dark depending on preference, black being quite a popular choice. The important thing is seeing the beauty in the neutral.


The pages of this planner will feel open and spacious. They do not like the confinement of structured boxes all over the page. They like to see that they have room to move in their planner and let the pen flow if they so desire. There is a real ‘pen freedom’ vibe about this planner style, they feel inspired by that feeling and can use their planner to their hearts content.


Here are a few examples I found on Instagram of the Elegant style planner:
