As if our love of all things BIC Cristal couldn’t grow any more insane!! They’ve released a Cristal Stylus Pen! Ballpoint tip for jotting down notes on paper and a rubber bottom for working your touchscreen device.

 

But what’s up with the US version? The silver version (top two images) resembles the classic Cristal design that we love so much. The US version is kinda… blah. Do Stateside people really need a pen clip?

All sorts of crazy love for these fantastic collages from French duo Bingo.

If you were asked to design the brand identity and packaging for a pencil company, what would it look like? We know what designer and letterer Winston Scully would do… type driven and classy. Too bad Imperial Pencil Co. is a class project. We wouldn’t mind adding a one of the Imperial Pencil Co. boxes to our pencil box collection!

LET’S GET IT STARTED!

As much as we want to horde ALL THE BICs… we won’t. So while we’ll be keepin’ one of each new BIC Cristal we find, the rest we’re layin’ out on the table for you RAHstrs. Get your own collection started with these sweet starter packs.

We got some sets with all black or blue ink, and some kick-ass ombre styles that include scented ink (who doesn’t want a minty pen?). These BIC Cristals hail from all over the globe – a nice lil’ kit to get you started!

SHOP BIC COLLECTOR EDITIONS

Mind playing tricks on you? Yup. Awesome Fakus pencil cases are super flat yet totally 3D. It’s like Roy Lichtenstein & Mondrian making babies… aka pencils cases that are graphic, bold, and totally rad!

Happy National Pencil Day! 

We got too many favorite pencils that we love. If you were to force us to chose… we’d have to go with a few pencils in our heavy rotation – the BIC Tropicolors 2, Viking Element, Vintage Scripto Thinline, and Happy Time 12 colored pencil set.

 

Do you have a favorite pencil? We wanna know what it is – please share a photo of it on our Facebook page or tweet at us @radandhungry. Thanks!

When was the last time you looked at a chunk of wood and was like… I’m gonna carve a stash of office supplies out of you? Like never? Thank goodness Camilla Barnard did because her office supply sculptures are super rad!!

GOLDENROD PENCILS, REEBOK FREESTYLES & BIC CRISTALS

I don’t know what came first – my obsession with goldenrod pencils or sneakers. Flip through my parent’s photo albums and you’ll find photos of me, pencil in hand.

 

A year after our move to the States. From left to right, sister, mom’s friend, brother, mother, and me rockin’ a goldenrod pencil and a sheet of paper.

 

My pencil collection started off heavy on the pink, with a healthy mix of holiday and themed pencils, AND an impressive selection of pencils with toppers. Now my collection is heavy on the goldenrod, with a healthy mix from around the world.

What I didn’t realize was happening during our World Tour? Our hunt for goods planted and nurtured another obsession of mine – the BIC Cristal pen.

 

 

Read the rest of the post to learn how we got started on the BIC love. (Oh, AND to hear how we got started off on that Freestyle collection!)
