There's nothing better than starting a brand new notebook for a brand new project, we love nothing better. In fact, we have notepads everywhere, some are so nice, we're scared to write in them, others on the other hand are full to the brim with ideas.
As people who use notebooks a lot we decided, after never being fully satisfied with what was available, to create our own. With a little help and support we hope that this could be the start of a notebook revolution. We have lots of great concepts and this is our first notebook we are trying to get off the ground. Hopefully many more will follow!
We have designed pages that can be used in many, many ways and there is no right or wrong way to implement the space. We can however, give you an idea...
So what's so special?
Everyone has a process when it comes to planning things. We have found that most people (not all) like a clean fresh start when it comes to planning a new idea, concept or project.
The problem is, an idea or project rarely spans the length of a notebook and if you're anything like us, you will find yourself discarding them well before they are full.
There is a downside to this. The obvious being, you will be buying an awful lot of notebooks. The other is missing out on the satisfaction of completely filling it with your thoughts and ideas.
There’s nothing better than looking through past ideas with fresh eyes and jumping back into them. We want to encourage creative people to record all of their thoughts, ideas, concepts and projects as if they were keeping a journal.
To do this we have designed a high-end notebook that is worth using and worth keeping:
- An A5, 192 page Hardcover Notebook.
- A beautiful white Linen Cover with words of inspiration debossed into the cover.
- Each page is premium 90g pure white paper printed with everything you need to plan and create.
- The middle 32 pages of the book are pure black which can only be written on with a white or silver pen. For when you want to do something a little different!
Take a look at some of the features:
Below: ENDLEAVES of the notebook:
These are made of 150g premium paper. The left page mirrors the cover and is filled with words to get those creative juices flowing, see below:
The right page is a key for your title of your pages, let me explain...
Doodling and colouring are something a lot of people do throughout their notebooks. We find it very theraputic and is a great way to clear your mind before the real work begins.
To embrace this, each page has a grid that will allow you to 'colour' the title of each page and is a great way to pause and think when needed without putting your book down...
The Left pages uses a blank space for sketching and doodling but there are also lines for you to add a little structure to your ramblings if needed.
The right pages consists of an Isometric grid for more detailed drawings if needs be. Again there is a grid for colouring a title and a few lines for notes.
The bottom of the page also has a grid for notes or sketches or even a flick book if doodling takes you fancy!
Risks and challenges
This is a high quality notebook and is not cheap to manufacture. Although all of our print files have been developed and are ready and waiting at our supplier we have not been able to produce our first print run due to costs.
That is where you come in.
We are very confident that this notebook will be produced in a relatively short amount of time once this campaign is successful but we accept that it may be daunting backing a product that is still not produced.
We can assure you that a lot of hard work has went into the planning, designing and development of this product and print ready files are waiting to go. After all this is a notepad and not a rocket that we are trying to produce.
We will succeed, please get involved!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
