“Everybody uses pencils. From designers, writers and architects, to baby-sitters and receptionists. Pencils are just as at home with children as they are with adults and are a fundamental tool for creativity and learning.
When I started this project, I was looking at ways in which, without interfering with its basic function, I could improve such a standardised, accepted product to make people happier when they use it. That became rainbow pencils.”
I mean, this is clearly a product every designer (or design-centric) person needs! What a great and original way to re-introduce the pencil. I imagine that if more “mundane” products were given this treatment we would gladly revert back to hand-writing just for the pleasure of having to sharpen up.
