Digital Notebooks

So my note taking is very…not tidy. It has a very distinct..let’s call it an ‘aesthetic’ – handwritten and handmade are very much how I work – but you CAN teach an old dog new tricks, and I can definitely see a pro in being able to collage together and organise my notes for a […]
