In late March, Kasey and Nick from Evernote came to Calgary to shoot a video about how I use Evernote to run UPPERCASE magazine. If you're not familiar with the service, Evernote's slogan "Remember everything" sums it up. With online, desktop and mobile access, you can create and categorize notes. Anything that you want quick and easy access to, from receipts to saved web images to writing to lists to audio notes, you can save to Evernote. There's a detailed post on their blog about how I use the service. The tool has been invaluable to me (I've been using it since issue #2) and I urge you to give it a try. It's free, though I use the premium version for increased storage and other useful features.
A few notes about the video:
0:03 My necklace is by Urban Legend. We're featuring jeweller Kateri Morton in issue #15.
0:05 Stockist The Daily Globe on 17th Avenue in Calgary
0:11 Scissor print by regular contributor Alanna Cavanagh
0:15 We moved the couch so that you can see the bookcase behind me.
0:16 I found this typewriter in my back alley in 2006. (I painted it orange.)
0:17 Flea market score: $10 typewriter! Works perfectly.
0:19 Ebay score: 1947 Hermes typewriter poster by Herbert Luepin, flea market paint-by-number kitten.
0:23 Yes, more typewriters!
0:35 That's Eleanor. If you have questions about subscriptions or the online shop, she answers them!
0:55 I love my big big monitor. A must-have for publication designers.
0:58 That's The Shatner Show, the first book I published. 76 illustrators interpret the life and career of Canadian icon William Shatner.
1:05 Windchimes by Ceeglass, featured in issue #13.
1:20 Crayon cover by Diem Chau.
1:23 That's my storage space in the lower level of Art Central. Yes, I do heavy lifting, too.
1:38 For non-Calgarians, that's Stephen Avenue, a pedestrian street a block from my studio. I'm trying to walk purposefully and not look at the camera.
1:38 Astute viewers will note that I took a really weird route to get into Art Central, but a scenic one!
1:50 Eleanor and I are discussing the felt pennants we've ordered to coincide with issue #14. From The People's Pennant, more details on this coming soon...
2:07 Shoutout to Anthropologie!
2:11 When we went to The Daily Globe to shoot, UPPERCASE contributor Nikki Sheppy just happened to be there. Another serendipitous moment for UPPERCASE magazine.
