Web Design Sketchbook

Oh, this is cool!

Now, you have got to understand that I am a total office supply junkie. I love interesting pens and notepads and all that junk. I have a bunch of Moleskine notebooks, for instance. And, I’ve been trying to sketch out a new WordPress theme in a sad sort of design notebook I’ve been keeping. Obviously that hasn’t been quite as well as I’d like, but this Web Design Sketchbook may inspire me a bit more.

It’s from a site called HuntingLodge.no, which is in Norway, and there is a store, but it was being upgraded when I wrote this. It maybe working now, though. Basically, it’s just a regular sketchbook, but with printed graphics on it that are like a browser window. So, when you’re sketching the design, whoever you’re sketching it for can sort of see how it would look in a browser window. How cool is that!? I know I’ll end up having to get one of these from them when their store is working again, but, until then, enjoy their “review” of it.

  1. You’re right that is cool. Easy to make your own I should think, but it’s just not the same as having a brand new notebook with a fancy cover is it! I know so many people who can spend hours in stationary shops just browsing. I wonder where in evolution ‘man’ developed this desire for pens and pads, how did it help us?!!!

  2. Yeah, actually, I know someone who created her own!
    But, no, it’s not the same as having one that was mass-produced. Not sure what it is, but I’m one of those strange people who enjoy stationary shops and the like. I have a pile of Moleskines growing faster than I can fill them! Not to mention all the other stationary supplies that gather like sedimentary rock around my house. And the pens! *sigh* It’s almost too much! But, at least it’s a relatively harmless obsession and not too expensive. đŸ˜‰
