HONESTY TO MATERIALS
Jot Script’s body has been simplified to reflect the style of a high end ball point pen. The grip was designed to have a low impact on the design by integrating a fine ribbed pattern around the aluminum body. Doing this simplified the look and enabled it to have a full body aluminum barrel.
DETAILS THAT COMMUNICATE USE
Jot Script was designed to have the ease of picking up a pencil and jotting on the closest thing near you. There were a few hurdles to cross to achieve this. Jot Script is a powered solution so we needed to have a power button, but since it’s only use is powering & syncing with an iPad we didn’t think it deserved a prominent position. The elegant geometric grid of the button and indicator light siting on top of the grip, makes it melt into the body. Powering on is just a press of the button and then it recedes away.
Keeping the price low so it’s available for more customers was important to us. By utilizing a AAA battery we were able to shave down the price, but it also created the need for some interesting solutions. At the back of the barrel we designed in a ring to add energy to the design and signify where the cap is removed to access the battery.
