Minimini Memo from Crux / Q-lia

These cute memo pads are part of the stationery company Q-lia’s aoharu series. The Japanese word aoharu (アオハル or 青春) has two meanings. The character 青 (ao) means blue and 春 (haru) means spring, and so aoharu literally meaning “blue spring”. But there is another way of pronouncing the kanji 青春: seishun, which means “youth” or “best time of life”. Aoharu in Japan is often associated with junior high school students who live their life to the fullest and share a good time with their friends. During a weekend stroll in Tokyo and you can find a variety of aoharu themed movie posters, magazines and stationery items in Japanese department stores. If you found sentimental illustrations paired with a soft and dreamy color palette, they are most likely aoharu design!
