Keeping notes is somewhat of an imperative in most lines of work, at least for those in the creative industries, and owning a notebook of some description is a bit of a prerequisite. There is, however, no escaping the never ending ascent into a more technological age and the humble notebook has been around for centuries and is now, perhaps, beginning to really show its age. There is a compromise on the horizon, however, and it goes by the name of Mod Notebooks and it’s got us here at Coolector HQ more than a little excited.
So, what is a Mod Notebook, I hear you say? Well, sir, it is a regular paper notebook (nothing special so far, right?) but one that can be synced with iCloud to create a digitised copy of your many notes, scribbles and illustrations (or whatever else you fill your notebooks with for that matter).
Mod Notebooks work thusly – once, you’ve filled all your page with the requisite notes, you send it off to the good chaps at Mod and they fully digitised it for you so you’ve got a much more accessible and shareable version of your notes available online and not just consigned to your notepad.
Mod Notebooks are the work of Marshall Haas and Jon Wheatley who wanted to create a bridge between the analogue and digital world and they’ve done it frightfully well with their impeccably realised design. Check out a few more shots of this decidedly spiffing project below:
If you become as attached to your notes as we do here at Coolector HQ, the Mod Notebook will come as somewhat of a Godsend and keeping a version of your notes online is a good idea from a security point of view but, truth be told, we love the awesomeness of their branding and great looking interface more than anything. A brilliant idea and one that brings the notepad kicking and screaming into the 21st century.
