The Universal Typeface Experiment

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Digital Marketing / Websites / 2015

For Bic, the biggest producer of pens in the world, handwriting is a very special kind of self-expression. People write more than ever now, but rarely by hand. How could Bic engage people and encourage them to take up that most personal way of writing again?

The handwritings have been collected and turned into a downloadable font.
