The Six Mile Pencil

Let Your Thoughts Travel

We gamified pencils to encourage people to create more.

With every hand drawn sketch, memo or offensive doodle of your boss, The Six Mile Pencil shows how far you have drawn so you can fist pump the air at every milestone. Whether it be 3 Miles or 1/4 KM, the more you draw, the better you get.

We heard that every pencil had 35 miles worth of graphite in it, so we tested it. Turns out it was only 6 miles but we still thought that was pretty cool, so The Six Mile Pencil was born and three months later had been successfully funded on Kickstarter.

Featured in Monocle, Wired, Design Week, Dieline, amongst many more.
