Field Notes

Created by Aaron Draplin, Field Notes is the result of a collaboration between the Draplin Design Co., from Portland, Oregon and Coudal Partners, in Chicago, Illinois. Drawing on their Midwestern roots and honoring the tradition of agricultural field notebooks, they've managed to turn something so simple (it's three staples, paper and cardboard with a simple brand name printed across the front) into something that has taken off all over - a return to writing stuff down in simple, understated notebooks. In addition to the stock range, they also release a limited range each season with a unique theme and innovative production process.
