As an interior design journal notebook aficionado, I find that nothing beats writing and drawing on real paper. While some will prefer to use as an all-in-one bullet journal (or bujo) where you can write, sketch, doodle, and input anything in, like to-do-lists, recipes, appointments, and work details, others prefer to have different notebooks for different functions or tasks.
These types of business journals are called function-specific notebooks. However, it always boils down to which you prefer, how your choice works for you, and how you use it.
For interior designers and other creative artists who prefer function specific notebooks, My Mood Board Inspirations and Imagery Collections can serve two ways:
- As an organizer and information storage of on-going design projects in a tidy, well-laid-out and professional manner.
- As a physical portfolio, you can use for your marketing strategy.
This organized interior design journal is useful as a starting point for any project you plan to execute. Its layout, which contains dedicated sections for each client and his or her project, has the following:
- Mood boards
- Imagery boards
- Lined pages
- Dot grid sheets
- Product and vendor details
The drawing and writing journal can be a beneficial business tool to use as a part of your initial consultation process. It will be a professional approach to showcasing all your creative works, like a resume. Asides those in the interior design industry, this book can also be used by fashion designers, graphic designers, interior decorators, including students of interior design.
