Derwent in the Wild

A Derwent Graphic Pencil, on BBC’s “Countryfile”.

Another Derwent Graphic, this time being used in a Dog IQ Test, on 5th June’s “Countryfile” programme, from the BBC.

The Graphic is a familiar pencil in the UK (perhaps not as familiar as the Staedtler Noris) – I remember doing my Art O-level with a mixed grade set of Graphics.

  1. Thanks for showing us.
    I always thought Derwent is missing a trick by not trying to make their pencil being recognised as writing pencils, too.

  2. I think that’s true, Matthias, although their Rexel sub-brand was a staple in school & office supply cabinets (and they still make a utilitarian HB office pencil) so it’s possible that they are wary of cannibalising that business.
