Take a look at some of your instructors favorite pencils, and learn about why to use them and what to use them for.
- [Instructor] Hi and welcome to Design Tools Weekly … with me, Tony Harmer. … This week, I'd like to appreciate the most basic … and perhaps the most essential design tool … that we have, the pencil. … You have time to think when you're working using a pencil. … And I believe that every project should start with one. … In my studio there are a few … that I use for different things. … And starting with the most basic, … which is almost exclusively used for writing … and of course, the odd bit of woodwork … would be the pencils I used at school, … the Steadler Tradition, … which are still a good basic pencil … to have around for note taking. … And as I said, the odd bit of woodwork is handy too … because they can lay down quite a lot of dark. … Schools in the US favor the Dixon Ticonderoga number two, … which equates to HB in the European scale. … And these are a great pencil with good point retention, … and that's just another way … of saying it stay sharper longer, … and has an attached eraser too. …
