About The Class

analog & Digital Notebooks designed with a philosophy of simplicity, usefulness, and community.

Baron Fig started as a project between two friends and is now a fully staffed studio with a line of products both digital and analog. Creative professionals spend vital time in their notebooks, so it's important that they're comfortable using them and that they fit their needs. There isn't a book or a brand out there that they absolutely loved, so these two friends made it!

Hear the behind the scenes story of this startup, from idea, to kickstarter funding, to prototyping the physical product, to creating the digital counterpart in an app. Learn what it takes to build a successful studio in 'Baron Fig: The Story of a Startup.'
