Joey from Baron Fig here. This is one of my favorite LE's we've made. When I received the first final prototypes I couldn't stop looking at them. Hope you all enjoy.
Hey all. Joey from Baron Fig here. We aren't a big company, but we're doing what we can since we're in a position to make a difference.
Joey from Baron Fig here. This notebook was TWO YEARS in the making. I kid you not. Khoi is a former Art Director at the New York Times, currently Principle Designer at Adobe. He's a busy dude. But we got it made and damn, it's even prettier in person.
One of my favorite Baron Fig projects so far. ;)

Totally understand—everyone works in their own way. If you haven't already seen them, check out the Vanguard. They're perfect as workhorse notebooks, specifically designed to be counter to the Confidant.
Jonathan, thanks for the props! Codex is our new app designed based on feedback from our analog notebook customers. As more notebooks are filled up, the struggle becomes one of finding where that particular note or sketch is. Codex isn't just a scanner, it's your notebook (and, if you like, your photo/document) library.
Everything is organized by hashtag, which is particularly useful for notebooks because of the myriad of content we have on any one page. Rather than have to decide which folder a page goes in you can add as many tags as you like. Example: A webpage wireframe and logo idea sketch on the same page—simply tag the page as #wireframe and #logo rather than select a single folder.
This version has been in-use here at Baron Fig for a while now, we're excited to push it live. It's already made my notebook shelf much more accessible (it's all in my pocket now), and the features we have planned are exciting.
We chose to go with a subscription because we're a small team providing constant updates and customer service. We don't plan to set it and forget it. As always, feel free to send feedback. We'd love to hear the good and the bad, this way we not only know what to improve, but what we're doing right. Hope you all enjoy.
What would you use? ;)
