MSK. Create Your Own Moleskine.

You must know what a Moleskine is. It’s the obligatory hipster, scenester and creative professionals notepad of choice.

Moleskine Art: more than mere doodles

Matt sent us this great link to Smashing Magazine where there is an awesome collection of Moleskine art. I love my Moleskine, and I wish it had art in it as good as some of these.  Mine tends to be filled with work-related notes, skulls, and ill proportioned blob shaped monster/robot things – much like my school notepads.

Competition for Moleskine

Field notes are slim memo books for those who want to “go against the grain”, to quote a superstar, and avoid the current Moleskine autocracy that is creatives and their notebooks.  Featuring 48 pages of graph lined paper and boasting that all important saddle stitching, Field Notes are Inspired by the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list. They’ve got a real nice 50’s vibe with the typography on the covers that is continued through the advertising on the site. I’m loving the whole package. The awesome branding should be no surprise given the companies behind it: Draplin Design Co and Coudal Partners. If you’ve never heard...
