Be­cause run­ning the space and do­ing free­lance work ap­par­ently wasn't enough, last year Doumet cre­ated her own prod­uct, the Fo­cus Jour­nal, a task note­book de­signed to make its users more pro­duc­tive. She work­shopped the jour­nal with L'ate­lier's clients be­fore tak­ing it to Kick­starter, where it raised $20,000 in a month. Doumet will end to­day by driv­ing an or­der to a store across town. The note­books can be found in var­i­ous out­lets around Van­cou­ver, in­clud­ing In­digo. Each one con­tains a note from Doumet. “I put in thank-you cards that I de­signed my­self,” she ex­plains. “They say, `You are awe­some.'” If the al­ways-full L'ate­lier of­fices are any sign, the feel­ing from her cus­tomers is mu­tual.
