Hey! I’m Macie! I’m a graphic designer who loves using bullet journaling as a way to increase productivity and make your life easier.
If you’re not familiar with bullet journaling, it’s basically the habit of keeping a journal or planner where you write down everything that happens in your life. You can add drawings, sketches, photos, quotes and more to help you remember things easily. Bullet journaling has become really popular in recent years and there are tons of resources online where you can learn how to get started or find inspiration for some new ideas.
Over the years our website has changed a lot – it turned from a hobby to something more as I dealt with life changing health issues. When I finally went back to college and then university to study graphic design, this blog became a place for me to share my progress and what I had learned along the way.
As I developed my creative practice and became more serious about learning calligraphy, this blog became an important part of my creative process. Think of Paper Kind as the research side of my work. Here we ask questions like: Why are notebooks a thing? Where did planners come from? And how did we get fountain pens?
