Back in August 2012, we launched an exciting partnership with Moleskine that gives you the pleasure of writing on paper with all the power of Evernote thanks to our Page Camera, which is available on both iOS and Android.
Today, we’ll show you how a designer uses the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine for sketching and brainstorming designs.
Michelle Regenbogen is the owner of Macchiatto, a boutique branding and packaging design firm in San Francisco. You can watch a short interview we did with her, in which she discusses how she tags successful concepts with Smart Stickers, then saves the sketches in Evernote to refine and share with her colleagues.
Capturing ideas on paper, saving them digitally
As a visual designer, Michelle relies on sketching to capture what inspires her and iterate through projects. She keeps her Evernote Smart Notebook handy wherever she goes so she can capture ideas as they come.
Below are a few concepts she worked on for Macchiatto’s Spring promotion, which she can easily share with clients right from Evernote on her desktop or phone.
From flower sketches to sample card designs, Michelle can quickly narrow down her favorites by attaching Smart Stickers directly to the page, ensuring that those designs will automatically be saved to Evernote. Michelle has set the stickers to create specific tags in Evernote, such as Share, Final, and Future ideas. She can later search through her Evernote account and find exactly what she’s looking for.
Saving Hand-Drawn Designs to Evernote with the Page Camera
To save sketches into Evernote, Michelle snaps a photo with Page Camera. This mode is designed to enhance the quality of the image, and recognize any Smart Stickers. Once snapped, the images show up in Evernote with tags included.
