🧨 considering changing my elevator pitch to ‘i build sexy @notionhq pages’

idk, is that too much?

I visited @NotionHQ in SF back in early 2019 👇🏼

I found some photos of Roman (@romanmfb), illustrator at work - Notion was just 13 employees when I visited them and Roman hand-sketched everything!

Amazing stuff! 😱 https://t.co/UvUctv2pbB

Experimented with building a personal wiki/digital garden in @NotionHQ this morning. I like this initial set up so far. 3 main databases:

System spaces: alphabetical list of note topics
Atoms: initial thoughts/ideas
Sources: source material and author/creator https://t.co/kPZFgdHqfC
Thanks for reading!
I’d love to see how you’re all remixing the templates, tweet me or tag me on Instagram  (@thenotionbar) and I’ll share your creations with the world!
If you have any template ideas or want to collab on something, reply to this!
