56 different models, 22 new releases, hundreds of ways to fill them in. A new photo gallery of diverse Moleskine planners, shown in use.

There are hundreds of ways you can use a diary or planner. Moleskine explores some of them with a new photo gallery of completed planner pages. The creative professional, the businessman, the student, the academic, the teenager, everyone has his/her own preferred layout, his/her own planning style, and their own approach to filling in the blank space of a planner. Moleskine users express themselves by creating a personal planning style by choosing from a variety of sizes, planners with different combinations of blank and ruled space, daily or weekly scheduling formats, hard or soft covers, and now also many different cover themes.

To illustrate this, Moleskine gathered images of different completed planners in a variety of layouts, creating a diverse photo gallery representing the many lives of Moleskine users.

How paper planner prosper in the digital era.
When it seemed that the planner industry was doomed to decline with to rise of digital tools for organizing time, ideas and memories, Moleskine designed tools to complement digital devices. Our research shows that Moleskine users feel perfectly comfortable using both analog and digital devices. In fact, people strongly inclined to the use of digital devices have a stronger than average passion for Moleskine notebooks and planners. Analog and digital tools have different moods and serve different purposes for different tasks and situations. Some tasks, like taking extemporary notes or jotting down ideas, show that paper planners still are highly valuable in face of smart phones or laptop computers. Moreover, neuroscientists agree on the fact that handwritten signs and words are easier to remember than digital.

Designed for durability.
Moleskine planners are designed for durablility, in the binding, the stitching, the cover and the place marker ribbon. Every planner is expected to be thumbed through up to 20 times per day, 365 days a year. It needs to be portable and tough so it can tuck into bags and pockets. This is why Moleskine materials are submitted to a strict quality control system. Moleskine planners are manufactured through a combination of handmade and automated production methods that makes every notebook unique. If, despite the strict quality control, any flaw is found, the user is allowed a free replacement, though our online quality control system.
