Warm Writing / Stationery Design

Warm Writing
Warm Writing

More and more people choose to type and communicate via screens, while the warmth of the traditional way—handwriting—is gradually fading away.

Warm Writing is a temperature-sensing pen,which uses transparent materials and temperature-sensitive ink, guiding people to pay attention to handwriting. When the words have just been written, they will gradually disappear as the loss of temperature. When people slowly stroke the words with their hands, the written words will be awakened by the warmth of the hand and then appear. After the temperature drops, the words disappear again, only waiting for the next encounter with the warmth from the hand.
