As I settle into my new job at Pixelworthy, I find myself thinking more and more about my “design process” and ways that I can improve upon it. One of the things that I’ve been focusing on is all the little ideas and absurdities that pop into my head during any given day. You know, those random little moments of inspiration where you think “that’s what I’ll do”! Except, a few hours (or days) later, you can’t remember what it was you were going to do. Or, you sort of remember, but not clearly enough to fully reproduce what it was you were thinking.
To combat these highly inconvenient lapses in memory, a lot of people keep journals and simply jot down all their ideas, thoughts, etc. And I figure that’s what I should start doing… both professionaly AND personally. So, to that end, I’ve narrowed down my “journal” search to following candidates:
Kolo Cabrio Journal (on the left)
- 150 pages
- 4″ x 6″
- $11.98 each
- 4 color choices
Lama Li Pirate Book Journals (on the right)
- 80 pages
- 6″ Ã— 6″
- $15.19 each
- 5 color choices
Part of me REALLY wants to get the Lama Li journals because they seem to be really elegant and fancy. However, that’s sort of the problem, because they come off a little bit TOO fancy for my purposes. That’s what drew me to the Kolo journals… they seem more practical and better suited to my needs.
So I ask you fine readers… which would YOU choose?
