How many meetings do you sit in each day wondering what the point of said meeting is and thinking about all of the creative work you could be doing instead. Managers of all levels spend approximately 35-50 percent of their day in meetings—most of which are unproductive. And while there are ways to cut down on the number of meetings throughout the day, there are also ways to show your grievance when you do have to sit through those unnecessary ones that you just can’t get rid of.

Just in time for the holidays (and the office Secret Santa), digital print and design company MOO launched a bold limited edition Notebook in collaboration with artist and illustrator Timothy Goodman. Something to add to your wish-list, the Notebook features Goodman’s original designs and a unique illustrated quote, “Meetings Kill Creativity,” with a matte black and silver foil-cover.

It’s the perfect office statement accessory and a great gift for notebook-lovers and creatives everywhere—from incessant list makers to habitual doodlers.

“As a creative person, I loathe meetings. Yet, as a business owner, I need to be in them a lot. I’ve been using MOO for a long time, and I love the irony that people will be using my limited edition notebook while sitting in another boring meeting. I wanted to remind them to keep the meeting short,” says Goodman, speaking of the inspiration behind the Notebook. And who can argue with that?

But the Notebook is not just about looks, it is chock full of specially-designed and thoughtful features. From the Swedish-made, archival Munken Kristall paper that never yellows, to the center, accent paper that divides the Notebook into two sections.

Another great feature is the Swiss binding which allows the Notebook to lay perfectly flat—great for left-handed writers and useful from the first to the last page. Plus the custom-designed slipcase, keeping the pages protected and pristine, the heat-sealed ribbon and more.

Design is at the heart of everything MOO creates. And partnering with Goodman, with his keen ability to drive emotion with his designs, simply just makes sense.
