David Yeiser of Design Intellection won some Field Notes memo books and a Field-Tested Books poster in a Coudal Partners contest, and decided to hold a contest of his own to share his new-found wealth. He asked his readers to send in a photo of a cup of coffee. Yesterday, he announced two winners; Ben Thomas and Jamie Bradway (Jamie’s already using Field Notes to track his annual coffee consumption). Thanks, Ben!

We don’t speak Russian, but we have a crush on Cyrillic, and we’re pretty sure we know what “Я не записываю это, чтобы помнить потом, я записываю это, чтобы помнить сейчас” means. Thanks, Cleptogirl! (Our Russian fan base has been growing ever since Omanmi.ru wrote about Field Notes back in November.)

Good Page Use, Alaskan-Style

Good Page Use

Mike “Midnight Sun” Kirkpatrick knows how to use his Field Notes. The proof is in the pages above. No real estate goes unused. The idea of these things getting used way up north on those wild tundras sits very well with all of us at Field Notes. Our hearts swell with pride. Way to go, Mike. Keep up the good usage.
