"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are."

There is a saying that says, "The most important freedom is to be who you are."

"Freedom" has always been the most important core value in the design of Take a Note. This is to allow everyone to use this notebook to be your unique look. Prioritize "non-interference with the user", make the minimum design while meeting the functional conditions, pursue details in many invisible places, and use the most minimalist way to achieve both beauty and functions.

The planner is used as a writing tool. With the years, we record our history. Those things that happened, good and bad, become memories. If you can keep a record, we can find it from the past when we look at it in the future. The original intention is like going back to the past through time and space. Even if we cannot change the past, we can not repeat the same mistakes and learn lessons from the past.

We hope that through this planner, you can find your true self.
