DESIGN STORY | MOON CHALK
My goal in designing The Moon Chalk was to not only make a geometrically precise drawing tool but something that creates new and original patterns, that are not tied to exact measurements and traditional drawing rules. Chalk is the perfect material for this. It was easily moldable and it has the exciting property in which it can be used to draw in any shape it takes.
