Books for Ideas

Designed by people like you.

Our small team contacted all types of thinkers around the world and asked them one simple question: What do you like in a Sketchbook or Notebook?

The response was tremendous. Their thoughts and ideas fueled the research, discussion, and design of our first book, which we call the Confidant.

The Confidant opens flat, has a load of pages that come in Blank, Ruled, or Dot Grid—and is just the right size.

The design isn't set in stone, however. We're continuing to evolve the book—and introduce more products—as users provide feedback.


Sketchbooks & Notebooks designed with an
underlying philosophy of simplicity, usefulness & community.

Opens Flat

There’s nothing worse than a book that curves so harshly in the center that 10% of the page is unusable. Problem: solved.
