Evernote literally organises my life! I have used this app for over a year now and it is a godsend, especially for the tasks I use it for, which I will explain a bit more about further on, but if you work like i do, where you do a LOT of research and seem to have notepads piling up, or scraps of paper all over the place with random notes, and even a bookmarks bar in your browser over-flowing with content, then Evernote is the answer! its the best and most accessible note organising platform out there, by far! I have tried a lot of other organising apps to help manage my business and others aren’t bad, but Evernote seems to always hold the title to be the best, for me.

If you are looking for an app that will be a fully functional task manager then Evernote is probably not what you need, i’d suggest looking at other apps such as as Omni-Focus for example. However, if your looking for an awesome app to organise all your online content, notes, diaries, bookmarks and more then this is where Evernote comes into play! Best of all, you can manage all your Evernote’s from any device thanks to the seamless sync, that pushes your content out to every device you have associated with your account.

When I get a new design project from a client, I always do research first, I want to know everything about their project, I want to know if anyone has done a similar project because I want to do it better! This is where I get the most value out of Evernote.

I will use an example of an iOS Icon project. When a client comes to me and asks for an iOS icon design, let’s say they want an icon that looks like a desk with a computer on it. I will first hop over to Evernote and create the client their very own Notebook within Evernote. (you can create as many notebooks as you like in Evernote.) I will then search the web looking for similar icons the client has asked for and clip them to the clients notebook, I will look for all kinds of desk and computers that i think the client may like and clip them to the notebook too. I will then research on different kinds of textures for the desk, and yes I clip them too and before you know it I have all my resources in preparation for my design, all in one place where I can reference them in a neat, organised and clean way. simple!
