Celebrating Movers of Ideas and Creativity with Moleskine

Moleskine, they are more than just the classic notebooks that I first got to know them, a classic nameless black notebooks used by some of the most talented writers and artists such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Bruce Chatwin that had long gone out of print. Today, Moleskine is more than just notebooks, they are now a diverse family of products for M, for Movers, a community that is constantly growing of like-minded passionate, creative and independent people, celebrating movers of ideas and creativity with Moleskine.

I currently have a few Moleskine notebooks, they are special and limited editions, two from Canon and one from LG. They were more than just gifts from the two major brands and I am only currently using the Canon Moleskine notebook, the other two are still wrapped up!

During a recent event in Singapore, I was introduced to Moleskine, celebrating M for Movers, of ideas and creativity, the movers life journey in a modern world today, with changes to working, travel, creativity and expression.
