It wasn't long ago that we featured Behance's Action Pads – now there's another tool to help people get organized – Field Notes. A partnership between Coudal Partners and Draplin Design Company of Portland has produced these fun and functional notebooks. For $9.95 you get three 48-page, soft cover notebooks completely filled with graph paper that fit perfectly into a back pocket. The fundamental layout of the book is nothing mind blowing or particularly unique, but it's the subtle details and acute knowledge of the intended consumer that is inspiring. Targeting designers and creative types, the notebooks are filled with minute detais that only a discerning eye would pick up on – such as the complete use of the Futura typeface and a detailed review of the decisions and materials that went into producing the books.
