From my partners at Snarkitecture. There are so many options out there I tend to get all my products from friends.
Action Method has become my all around notebook in the studio especially great for team meetings.
I really love the reduced dot grid book. I find that having the technical touch of the dot grid on the page allows me to sketch at scale which is critical to communicating architectural ideas. The control of the grid is there when I want it but also subtle enough where I can still let loose when I want to.
As advanced as technology gets I still find it's critical to be able to draw your ideas if only to remind yourself that simplicity and clarity are key.
