Want Of The Week: Field Notes Road Trip Kit

19 October 2011, 09.09 | Posted in Design, Product, Want Of The Week | No comments »


In case you haven’t heard of/seen Field Notes then you need to check their stuff out. These simple pocket-sized note books are the type of thing that make you think, “I wish I thought of that”… but even if you had, they probably wouldn’t have been nearly as well designed. The level of attention to detail you would expect coming out of Draplin Design Co. Someone slipped me one of these memo books and after spending 90% on a keyboard it is refreshing to write things down by hand every now and then. Anyway, this Road Trip Kit in particular is my want of the week since I spend a lot of time on the road. With this kit you can pick out 6 state-specific memo pads with information about each state on the back covers. This package also includes one Field Notes Steno Pad and six Woodgrain Pencils. Before you go on your next road trip pick up your own kit or any other Field Notes products at fieldnotesbrand.com

Creative Couples

I’ve been following this series “Creative Couples” on a site that I look at on a regular basis. Every now and then they showcase a couple where both people have their own thing going in the art world or they are working together. Pretty inspiring and pretty cool. The picture above is of Anna Wolf and Mike Perry, both amazing at what they do. Anna a photographer and Mike a designer. Check out their story here.

Awesome short film about the dying art of hand painted signage/advertisements. Relates to a lot of things that technology is changing these days.
