Willyum Beck | Art Director at BPN

Willyum is a designer and art director who brings together a bright, chaotic style that gets .gif wild but somehow stays clean. Mostly. His website is intense and his BPN art direction is rock solid.

Your manifesto / rules to live by / motto:

Do you, not somebody else.

How would you describe your work if you left out all the boring parts?

Visually provocative, but also digitally weird.

Pen, pencil or stylus?

Pens! In school I took really good notes in pencil, but the pages of my notebook would rub together in my backpack. By the time I got home, my notes would just be huge graphite smudges.

Be honest: how often do you clean your desk?

Everyday, it’s become part of my process.



The Dux solid aluminum sharpener is like a tiny glittering trash can for your desk, or a slick silver satellite for your pencil. Weighty and dense yet modern and bright, it can match your writing or drawing wherever it takes you. Tall and handsomely faceted, this is a pencil sharpener with a lot to offer. Two sizes of sharpener in the top, a screw-top lid, and a lot of volume make for a practical (if unusually good-looking) accessory. 

Dux has made high quality cures for the woebegone writing instrument for over 100 years, and we trust this double whammy sharpener will do the trick for you.
