The Series 1 Pocket Sketchbook

As designers, we go through plenty of pocket sketchbooks, from Moleskine to Field Notes. After years of using off-the-shelf sketchbooks, we decided that we wanted to create one of our own. Introducing, the Pixel & Timber Pocket Sketchbook — Series 1. 


From timber to pixels and back again...

The inspiration for Series 1 of our pocket sketchbook came from the forest image you see at the front of our site. The intent was to warp that image into something akin to a Rorschach Test. After a fair amount of ink, we landed on an evocative illustration. Then we started chipping away at the sketch with an imposing, Tetris-like swarm of pixels and the P&T logo. The result is eye-catching for any nearby onlooker.


We wanted to be as sustainable as possible in the creation of these sketchbooks. That's why we picked the fine folks at Scout Books. Scout Books uses vegetable-based inks and paper sourced from American mills. The 18pt chipboard cover pages contain 85% post-consumer recycled content and 15% pre-consumer recycled content. The 32 dot-grid pages inside are 100% post-consumer recycled, 70# text weight paper. Plus, Scout Books powers their presses and production machinery with renewable energy. 


The sketchbook cover is a mighty canvas for inspiring others with a small dose of art. We plan to keep on making new editions. The design available today is Series 1. Get yours, for free, while supplies last. Series 2 will arrive in Q4 of 2018, so be sure to follow us on LinkedIn or subscribe to our blog to catch it in a future update!

Thank You For A Successful Screening!


Our screening of "Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry" is now firmly in our rear view and we are happy to look back fondly on its success. After months of conversation and preparation, the day arrived and thankfully, so did the community. We were able to fill the floor of The Carnegie Theater during both screenings, gathering well over 200 attendees! Between screenings, the Farmer's Market was equally full — so much so that the market members asked to stay open after the second screening to accommodate — which we couldn't be happier about. It was a genuine pleasure to bring together so many wonderful folks with community businesses and farmers. As a special thanks to all those who participated, we'd like to highlight our partners, supporters, and market vendors below, as well as share some photos from the day.

A note: if you missed the screening, we are happy to say that the film is now available on Netflix Streaming for your on-demand viewing. We would highly suggest turning down the lights, silencing your phone, and settling in for a quiet but powerful viewing experience. Additionally, the links and resources below can help attendees and non-attendees alike to learn and live more closely with their community. For a summary of the information below, you can download our Program PDF here.

Here's a few scenes of prep before, and glimpses of the market, during the screening event.

"Look & See: A Portrait Of Wendell Berry"

Pixel & Timber is proud to announce something very special that we've been working on. In partnership with our friends at BluEarth Branding, we are co-hosting a day of screenings of the new documentary "Look & See: A Portrait Of Wendell Berry" this Sunday, October 15th at The Carnegie Theater in Covington, KY.

Screenings will take place at Noon and 4PM with a fall farmer's market in between, featuring unique creations from Chef Chris Burns of Commonwealth Bistro and Chef Baron Shirley of Inspirado. You can get tickets, for free, at

Wendell Berry's words and works inspire our firm on a daily basis. Hopefully the trailer below is both affecting and sheds some light on our affinity for his thinking and approach. We're so excited to offer this screening to the community — free to the public — and we would love to see you there.
