Made In The U.S. of A.

Field Notes Brand

Inspired by the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list, the Draplin Design Company in conjunction with Coudal Partners bring you Field Notes in hopes of offering an honest memo book, worth filling up with good information. "I'm not writing it down to remember it later. I'm writing it down to remember it now."

Heather Is The New Black

The Tee

We have made tee shirts for a variety of projects but until now we have never made a simple Coudal Partners shirt. And this one is about as simple as it gets. A tee, perfectly constructed tee from a sweet new blend with just our "Crois" logo on the front. That's it.

Our First Book + A Screened Poster

Field-Tested Books

The new Field-Tested Books Book contains three years of reviews; 143 entries from more than 90 authors. A portion of the proceeds on each book sold goes to First Book, an awesome charity that buys new books for underprivileged kids. You buy a book and a kid gets a book. Nice. Also check the limited-edition FTB Poster by the Chicago's amazing Spike Press.
