To celebrate the 15th Anniversary of MD Paper Products, MD invited 15 artists to get creative with the MD Notebook. Each special-edition MD Notebook features the artists' illustrations blind embossed on the covers. Lindsay Arakawa, a Honolulu-born, Japan-based digital artist designed this cover.
A Note from the Artist:
"Being a Virgo means that I love making a to-do list, so naturally, I also love my notebooks. The thing that’s so great about a fresh new notebook is that it provides a blank canvas full of possibilities. The design I created for this collaboration with MD PAPER PRODUCTS™ is meant to be a fun representation of some of the different ways you can use a notebook — for instance, it can help you remember things for later, brainstorm project ideas, or even be a place where you write down a quote you overheard and really related to. There are so many different ways you can use your notebook, and the ones I drew on the cover are just some of the ways I use mine."
Midori's MD Notebooks are known for their simple and minimalistic design, which is intentional in order to emphasize the quality of the paper and your writing experience. Your pen will glide across MD's specially formulated paper, which also prevents your ink from bleeding, ghosting, and feathering.
