My Evernote Workflow

15 Jan 2010

evernoteShared notebooks are one of the many selling points of Evernote. Being able to automatically share content easily (no manual upload), with additional benefit of an RSS feed is genius – it almost becomes a blogging platform. As well notebooks shared with individuals (such as moodboards for clients) I have two public notebooks:

Design Scrapbook – where I keep any inspiration, be they images, PDFs or type samples. When clippings have come from webpages. the original URL is saved too.
Cheese Diaries) – where I take snaps of cheese labels to remember what I ate.

Some notebooks are private, but synced, (such Opera work) and I’ve got used to a system to help ensure confidential information doesn’t appear where it shouldn’t.

Simply, I have a default notebook called ‘Inbox’ where all clippings arrive. Every 3-5 days I go through and tag the content (type, * rating out of 5, colour palette etc) and then drag the clipping into it’s proper notebook.

Often, I’ll combine various images and text by copying and pasting into a single note, to create a kind of simplistic moodboard. To do this, I often have to resize and crop images, but that can be done by right clicking the image, opening it in a graphics editor (Preview does the job quickly) and saving it. When I get back to the note, the image is altered.

    Just tried the Vegan Sausage Roll from Greggs. Really good - nicer than the meat one, and the thought of Piers Morgan frothing at the mouth makes it even tastier
