This week I have been SERIOUSLY impressed with a recent purchase I made for a personal branding experiment. As many of my design friends know, I always have a tendency to keep with me at all times, one of about 10 mini notebooks. Between Moleskines, ActionPads, & Field Notes, the new CR BRAND Mini Signature is my absolute FAVORITE.
Why I Love It [SO MUCH]
The Mini Signature is fantastic because it is so small! It measure just above the size of your standard credit or business card.
I am a huge paper nerd - I have a small fortune of about 80 kinds of paper samples in my possession, and a fairly extensive storage area just for paper. This notebook is made of a fabulous thick paper stock that appeals visually and tactilely. It doesn't lose it's shape no matter how many time I throw it into the depths of my purse!
What sets this awesome little powerhouse of a notebook is the concept behind it's construction. As a designer, I'm constantly carrying around a myriad of business cards, swatch chips, bits of post-it notes I've written something on, and most likely a debit or credit card. The Mini Signature & Signature notebooks come with a handy little pocket & business/credit card slot cut out! I can now throw all of my knick knacks and paddy whacks into a little package that fits even into the smallest of skinny jean pockets [YAY!].
THE PAPER [OF COURSE]
The reason I originally picked this notebook was for the simple fact that I HATE box-style gridded paper. The Mini & Signature notebooks come complete with dot grid formatted paper for my sketching and writing needs! Not to mention the second half of this look book is perforated so I can write something down and tear it out later if I need to! No more jagged messed up pages ruining my slightly OCD notebooks.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
I thoroughly recommend this awesome purchase to ANY designer, or web designer/developer/anyone in general. All of these features make it the perfect notebook for so many different uses! Oh, and did I forget to mention the price to you?
Like to buy your books in bulk [like me]? Email them directly and they can handle larger orders then 5-10! Overall my experience was fantastic & their customer service was amazing!
