Massive thank you to James at Business Boom Bolton for asking me if I would like Kreative Bomb featured on their website.

Always happy for kind people to spread the word about Kreative Bomb and the work that I do. All publicity is good publicity.

Please take a moment to a) check out my article on the Business Boom Bolton website and b) check out the profiles of the other wonderful creative types featured on the BBB website.

Respect the Rotring

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I was first introduced to Rotring technical drawing equipment back in 1989 when I first attended Rochdale College of Art & Design. As part of the foundation course I was enrolled on, we did a six-week crash course on Graphic Design. Bear in mind that in 1989, not many colleges/universities had embraced the Apple Mac yet. The most expensive piece of kit a design student owned in those days was a set of Rotring Isograph technical drawing pens and a tin of Spray Mount. I’m sure for today’s student, it’ a Macbook Pro.

I loved my Isograph pens. As a designer that favoured illustration and marker visuals, my .25mm was my weapon of choice. Nowadays, I favour Faber-Castell PITT pens for doodling but I’m still using my 20+ year old Rotring 500 Rollerball, ballpoint pen and mechanical pencils.

And a real blast from the past – the Rotring Technical Pen cleaning tub. Fill it with nibs, water and cleaning solution and leave it over night to get those nibs clean.
