Floppy disk post-its
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

Brilliant! I want some!
Has this not been done before? Seems like one of those ideas thats so obviously good yet no ones done it till now!
Are they available to buy?
Very cool idea - gotta love an innovative idea!
@ 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.
That's such a cool idea... and I really had forgotten about floppy disks!
I want to buy some.
Good memories !
Really nice! :)
I remember, I had similar amount of sticky labels FOR floppy disks 20 years ago :D
That's such a brilliant idea!!! Much better than the kisses and hearts!!
