From education to employment

BIC Design and Shine competition winner

The interactive Design and Shine competition, which was developed to encourage creativity across the UK and Ireland, was open to anyone over the age of 13 years old this summer.

Bruna Goncalves, BIC UK and Ireland’s Product Manager – Stationery, said:

“It’s rare to have the opportunity to put your stamp on such an iconic product, see it go into production and made available for purchase. There is so much talent out there that deserves recognition and we hope the campaign encourages budding designers of all abilities to get creative.”

After thousands of budding designers submitted their creative barrel designs for a limited-edition BIC® 4 Colours pen, judges selected 10 finalists who were put forward for a public vote between 27th August and 9th September.

13-year-old Evie Sherry’s brilliantly decorative and colourful design won this year’s BIC Design and Shine competition after her design was voted as the nation’s favourite by a public vote.

After securing nearly 1,000 of the total 4,727 votes cast throughout the voting period, Evie’s design was put into production in autumn and the Norton local also received a £3,000 prize to fuel her thirst for design.

BIC, in partnership with the Design and Shine competition winner, have now launched the ultimate limited-edition BIC® 4 Colours Décor

Evie’s design features a host of crazy characters and vibrant colours, which will brighten any pencil case when the new term starts in January. Featuring black, blue, red and green ink in four medium 1.0mm ballpoints, the limited-edition pen can write for up to 8km and is the ultimate stationery stocking filler this Christmas.

You’ll have to hurry though; this pen is a limited-edition special, so make sure to get your hands on one before they’re gone!
