Comments by the Judges
The First Taiwanese Planner Winning Good Design Award

The versatile planner features pale-colored grid lines, so the users won’t find the layout too complicated. Another most-praised feature is that the planner provides a flexible environment, so users can write meticulously to fully use it, or they can easily customize the planner. The planner is also marked with Taiwanese holidays, like those of the lunar calendar, which shows the design has taken users' living environment into consideration.​​

FEATURES

☆ 2023 NEW DESIGN ☆

VERTICAL YEARLY PLAN

MORE SPACE! MORE FLEXIBILITY! NEW LAYOUT!
☆ NEW ☆
VERTICAL YEARLY PLAN

A total of 4 pages has been added to the vertical yearly plan. A double page can preview your half-year itinerary, which is easy for arrange schedules that span several months. It could also be used as a project plan or habit tracking table.

Not only does it provides more space, but it can also be used with bullet journals as index. 
There’s lots grid note area below the plan for additional notes.

ⒶMonthly Plan

Rich functional design, suitable for everyone.
Two colors distinguish holidays and working days, and recording everyday life with the planner is more ceremonial. The 16-month monthly plan extends from this year and next year to the monthly plan in March of the following year, making it easier to arrange cross-season and cross-year itineraries. Each week has a corresponding weekly plan page number, which can be quickly flipped to the current week's weekly plan.

Ample writing space
There are plenty of blank spaces on the top, bottom, left, and right sides. You can divide different blocks for different purposes according to the note-taking method.

ⒷWeekly Plan

The combination of a mini weekly calendar and a two-day, one-page vertical timeline is the original format of TAKE A NOTE.

【Mini Calendar】Visually present the position of the week, and you can know the holiday of the month without flipping to the monthly plan.

【Mini Weekly Calendar】To record important itineraries for a week, the extremely light solid line divides the mini-weekly calendar on the left and right, and the right side is a blank square regardless of the date. You can record different events according to your habits.

【Vertical timeline】The timeline is from 6:00 am to 3:00 am (A6 is from 6:00 am to 12:00 midnight), suitable for users with different schedules. There are no extra decorations, only enough blank writing space providing flexibility and freedom for users to use at will.

【3.5mm grids】All are drawn with very light dotted lines, without the visual pressure of dense squares. The height of two grids is just 7mm, which is suitable for writing Chinese characters. One grid is about the size of a highlighter pen, which is convenient for filling color labeling.

ⒸOther Layouts

【Yearly Plan Gantt Chart】It's handy for planning your annual itinerary or as a habit tracker.

【Grid note page】The note page is 4 pages in total, and is provided as an appendix for users who need more space. The format has been redesigned, adding anchor points, and drawing solid lines every 5 grids in the vertical and horizontal positions. "5x5 solid line grid" makes counting grids faster, and writing notes has never been so convenient!

ⒹPure Beauty of Paper

Keeping a log is a heartfelt ritual. As high-quality fine art paper, Satogami paper from TAKEO showcases the natural warmth and softness of paper. Therefore, the paper’s original texture is made to retain during the manufacturing process.

Ⓔ180° Lay-flat binding

Exposed spine binding enables the planner to lie flat when opened. Just a flip and it sits flat on a desk.

ⒻTomoe River Paper

The Tomoe River Paper pen cannot write through, and the drawing and stamping have a perfect performance. The white Tomoe River Paper can show the color of the pen and ink better than the beige. Compared with other planners with the same number of pages but using thewood-free printing paper, the weight is reduced by 20%, and carry it around will not increase the burden.

ⒼSize and Layout

使用範例

月計畫使用範例

月計畫上下左右都設有不少MEMO區域,每週左邊較大區域設置要做的事與想做的事,在當週最右邊的格子可以有點短的當週回歸,上方可以設定本月目標,目標是什麼都無所謂,重點是讓你每次翻開都能看見進而達到提醒自己的效果。

迷你週曆使用法

示範十分鐘讀書筆記在TAKE A NOTE手帳上的迷你週曆寫法,畫在每週開頭一目了然,日計畫的大空間可以寫下預計要唸的進度以及更詳細的內容、完成確認等,很適合學生呢!

迷你週曆當一般筆記

迷你週曆其實也可以當一般筆記空間使用,如果很在意日期的話用紙膠帶貼起來就好。迷你橫式週曆最上方是固定事項和習慣確認表,最上面的迷你月曆直排跟格子是對齊的,分別可以對應週一到週日。

週計畫使用法

平日事情不會按照時間順序出現,像是晚上的時間先被約走,這時候在左邊的格子加上真正佔用的時間區塊,用拉線的方式對應的話,就不用在意順序錯位的問題啦!

年計畫橫式甘特圖

橫式甘特圖好用的地方在於可以一覽整年,拿來寫習慣追蹤,或是工作需要排休的朋友拿來寫假期,都非常好用。

迷你週曆當作運動紀錄

想要以週為單位記錄的事情,放在迷你週曆是最方便的了,有足夠但又不至於大到太空白的空間可以記錄,幫自己設定好追蹤的目標每天按時填入,一整個禮拜看下來就很充實。
