Today we’re kicking off Evernote’s Creative Series, a collection of posts about creative uses for Evernote and the creative people behind them.

Luckily, Julie Gomoll was kind enough to explain and show off her process. When dealing with a client, how does one elicit the kind of presence they want to convey? Psychophysics: Are We Biological Billiard Balls? Psychophysics secretly permeates our people-sciences (it assumes we’re motivated by physics-like forces). But as every infant—each a great causality detector—knows, but many scientists ignore, people aren’t biological billiard balls. 1. 3 Photo Editing Tools for Eye-Catching Instagram Posts One cannot deny the fact that social media is an addiction that one doesn't want to kick, and for a good reason.
