Beautifully boxed Sharp & Blunt pencil sets from the UK’s Urban Graphic are the complete package. Funny and well-designed, they’re as much a conversation piece as a writing tool.

I realize hardly anyone uses pencils anymore, but that doesn’t stop them from being popular. Pencil sets of all kinds can be found on etsy and in chic stationery stores. And these are some of the best.

Bristol based Designer Rob Hodgson used his own handwriting, illustrations and design to create these five funny and fabulous pencil sets and the packaging.

Procrastination, Pick-Up Lines, Storyteller, Gangster and Depressed, each set contains six pencils upon which quotes are printed.

A sixth set was designed, Obey The Pencils, but it’s not on the Urban Graphic site, nor can I find them for sale anywhere:

Even the Point-of-Sale displays are nicely designed.
