Art always also means communication. Although drawing and sketching is something that is generally done alone, creatives thrive on debating questions of design – what images are currently inspiring, which techniques are best-suited and what pencils are particularly vibrant? Intensive discussions take place among our loyal and passionate community on the Facebook page of Faber-Castell – and not only that: time and again, fans post their own designs and ask whether these could be depicted on product packaging.
Exactly that has now happened: the Polychromos Cup is decorated with an image that was selected in a Facebook competition. Under the motto “Urban Colours”, the world’s largest pencil manufacturer called on its fans to develop a design for a new pencil cup.
