Representative Wes Keller was an Alaskan Legislator, he is now retired. Wes has always utilized 3×5 notecards as his go-to for taking notes or writing lists, and this is a habit that has continued into the digital age. As a legislator, he often needed paper to write on and his contact information for two locations with him at all times.
The goal of this project was for the client to have readily accessible 3”x5” cards in his pocket with his contact information and the ability to always have paper at hand for note taking. This also allowed him to not have to carry as many business cards. By creating a custom 3”x5” card, contact information was pre-printed and on card stock, like typical 3”x5” cards. This provided stability when taking notes without a hard surface below. This also made the card less likely to be thrown away as a “scrap of paper”. The lines are lighter, so they wouldn’t be a distraction or compete for attention when the card was full of notes.
