Watch This Video For A Planner Designed By The Creator Of ‘Earthbound’
I first discovered the Hobonichi Techo several months ago from the ever rad Tiny Cartridge (read their amazing review of the 2013 edition!). This gorgeous planner book comes from Shigesato Itoi - better known by oldschool gamers as the creator of the Earthound/Mother series - and his company 1101.
These little planners actually have a passionate cult following akin to that of Moleskine notebooks, only it’s way more versatile and customizable via a buttload of fresh covers. The 2013 edition was pretty tough to procure outside of Japan thanks to a Japanese-only website that required it’s own navigation guide. Thankfully, the 2014 has its very own English website!
Although we live in a digital age of smartphones, tablets, and social networking, it’s nice to know something as simple as a day planner can still be impressive and inspire creativity.
