Pencil and Paper

by Sarah Stone

Sometimes when I am lost for ideas and looking for inspiration I love to come across something that appears so simple yet remarkable. Here is an advertisement for Staedtler that sparks the imagination in an elementary form. I love pencils. .  It is how I start many designs, concepts and copy. Having the words in front of me, my own writing, shape and size of letters I can analyze the emphasis of how something is written which also helps identify the importance of a certain key work. Plus sketching also removes me from looking at a monitor briefly. (Which is back where I am now writing this?)

Sketching. . . Pencils . . . free yourself from the office space and draw.
