Idea

Create an application for the ipad pro that draws from analog stationery design, and allows the user to fully customize their experience.

Brand Partnership Opportunities | Stationery Partners

By partnering with stationery companies, Adobe can create a library of notebooks and pens that look like the real thing. This will allow the user to have their digital notebooks reflect the analog notebooks they enjoy using, and Adobe to gain an analog presence.

Companies that partner with Adobe can sell content like notebook cover designs, and custom pen settings through the application. This allows the stationery companies to gain a unique digital presence, and by using adobe's software capabilities they can have the best representations of themselves in tech.

Research

Handwriting notes, especially in cursive, showcased an increase in brain activity that was not present when typing notes. By writing information down by hand, we actually ingrain it better into our minds and are most likely to remember it.
