GETTIN’ SCHOOLED

Navigating the hustlin’, peddlin’ beat of Stationery Square. Spanish skillz put to the test but we ain’t fooled. One light-bulb-moment pencil, one happy college notebook, and one phat pack of matchin’ labels – it’s STMT X CHILE!

SHOP STMT X CHILE

 

Fell hard for these notebooks the second we saw ‘em. Oh-so-bright covers sportin’ a happy dude on a bicycle? YES PLEASE. Brought us back to our school days – so of course we had to complete the full-on campus picture. A pencil to inspire your next genius spark, and labels to keep yo shit organized. College may be long behind us, but we still dig the vibe

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!

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!

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!)

EYE OF LE TIGRE


Paris Package 4.0 and the bar’s set set high – we knew we had to come with somethin’ super fly. One eco-friendly pencil, one pocket notebook, one poppy calligraphy notebook and a BONUS colored pencil – it’s STMT X FRANCE!SHOP STMT X FRANCE.

 

RAHstrs always love the Frenchie kits, so we knew we had to bring it. Found the pencils while searchin’ for mayo (no joke), but our BIG score? These geometric-dream pocket notebooks from Papier Tigre, a shop in Paris’ oh-so-stylie Marais district. Manager Maxime totally hooked us up – these notebooks are a traveler’s dream! Bite sized and super stylie without being in yo face. A look only the French could create!

 

Go on, shop the France Kit, and read the Low Down to hear about that mayo adventure (and why you should TOTALLY hunt down some French mayo).

Utility knife turned pencil? Totally intrigued. Blade-shaped graphite that retracts inside the handle and draws a precise line against a straightedge. The OCD in me is screaming for one. Added bonus? The graphite blades come in colors!
