crazily lined notebook inspires creativity

Looking for inspiration? Staring at a blank notebook won’t help—but looking into ‘The Inspiration Pad’ by Brussels-based designer Marc Thomasset might help you get a few “outside-the-lines” ideas.
With its 32 pages of warped blue lines—unlike Moleskines or other plain strait-laced lined notebooks—the softcover Inspiration Pad gives your brain a twist as you free your imagination to think of ways to fill in the blank pages.
“I was drawing projects in a notebook, and suddenly it hit me how a classic notebook, however beautiful, is always very rigid and grid-like,” he told My Modern Met. “So I wanted to turn the conventional upside-down with curves, angles and twisted lines in order to create one which could inspire people to unleash their own creativity.”

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
