Introducing Appointed—an American-made brand of thoughtfully designed desktop products that make utility look luxurious. Following an exhaustive yet unsuccessful search to find well made and refined desktop products that are manufactured in the U.S., we decided to create our own. Practical, beautiful and handcrafted of the finest materials, Appointed goods are designed to elevate the work experience.
Based in the Washington, D.C. area, Appointed was created by Suann Song, a graphic designer and founder of SIMPLESONG Design, a nationally recognized creative studio. Appointed is Suann's years-long dream in the making, culminating in the creation of an entire suite of desktop tools that are practical and polished and have been prototyped to perfection.

On Kickstarter—in March 2015, Appointed launched and successfully raised funding through a Kickstarter campaign. The funds raised from the campaign were used to put our signature product — the notebook — into production. At Appointed, we believe a beautiful work environment fosters creativity, productivity and overall well-being. And we believe a notebook represents untapped potential and endless possibility. Watch our Kickstarter video or see the campaign here.
