Redcue Stapler / Stapler

Redcue Stapler
Redcue Stapler

In Redcue Stapler, there is a gauge indicating the amount of staples remaining. The gauge is on the stapler cover, which is the easiest place to notice for the user. This eliminates the difficulty that users may face after unexpectedly running out of staples.
The pusher part, designed in red, gets pushed towards the front of the structure as the number of staples gets reduced, and the hole in the shape of an exclamation mark immediately informs the user that there are no more staples.
The red exclamation mark was designed to draw the user’s attention by the effective use of shape and color.
