Take Note is one of my favorite podcasts. The main premise is this: Ted Walker and Adam Webb are both avid note takers who also love sharing what they've been taking notes about. The logo is a reflection of this interest in the combined memo book/pencil shape. The choice of typeface follows that of the more commonly mentioned brand of memo boosk on the show – Field Notes, which is always set in Futura.
These are a selection of mockups and screenshots that display the Take Note logotype as it's being used.
