Field Notes 2019 XOXO Ed Pocket Notebooks
Portland, Oregon’s XOXO Festival started several years ago to celebrate independent art and technology, and since its beginning, we’ve been producing small custom runs of our Memo Books for attendees. Each year, the festival selects a visual artist to develop a “look” for the event, and we work with the artist to create a set of notebooks. This year’s artist is Portland’s Maja Dlugolecki. Her brushstrokes and abstract color fields countered with white space — bright watercolors in this case — look great reproduced on soft, felt-textured cover stock, reminiscent of watercolor paper.
