Field Notes Brand is a company with a dedicated worldwide fan base. Their thoughtfully-designed and beautifully-printed notebooks owe their existence to a tradition of promotional memo books distributed to American farmers over the last hundred years by seed, tractor, and other agricultural companies. Field Notes Brand's offices, warehouse, shipping facility and shop occupy this tall, light-filled space in a former industrial building that once housed a factory for large train engine parts. A wood and steel mezzanine built inside creates well-lit spaces to work and socialize. Fans regularly visit the small shop from around the globe, and this combination store, studio and event space allows staff to interact with them in a unique and interesting way.
