An interview series featuring notable people within the pen, art, and design worlds. Matt Vergotis is a talented Logo & Corporate Identity specialist and the founder of VERG, based on the Gold Coast, Australia. He has a simple philosophy on life and that’s to "do the things you love to do."
Please tell us about yourself and what you do.
I'm Matt Vergotis from the Gold Coast of Australia. I specialize in corporate identity. A lot of the work I do focuses around logo design, but I'm always trying to educate clients that there's more at play than just their logo when acquiring a solid visual identity for their company. I have also found a new love in both lettering and typeface design. Outside of work I'm an ultra obsessed surf nerd and I'm married with two of the most adorable little girls.
Did your mind explode after reading yesterday's post, A Comprehensive Guide: Pencil Cases, Pouches, & Rolls? If your reeling mind has recovered, we've got something today that will blow you away all over again. We're giving away a Pen Case Prize Pack that includes:
Even with the goodies we're throwing in, the versatile Lihit Lab Teffa Pen Case has plenty of room to spare with 5 main compartments of various sizes and the ability to carry 17-24 pens. So have at it and fill up with your favorite pens and accessories!
For this giveaway, entering by leaving a comment below telling us your favorite pencil case and why, OR by signing up through Facebook.
Rules and instructions:
Pencil cases come in a huge selection of shapes and sizes. Some are made to hold your top three pens, while others can carry all the office supplies you own. Depending on who you are and what you need, your requirements for capacity, material, and style will vary. Students might prefer a durable nylon case that's easy to clean, with a main compartment big enough for a calculator. Artists, on the other hand, need a high-capacity case that displays instruments clearly, so that they can work quickly and precisely.
Many of the pencil cases shown here have a multitude of different pockets and slots for you to play with. These compartments make it easier to find what you're looking for, and prevent your items from knocking around and being damaged. This might not seem important when you've got a pack of Sharpies with you, but when it comes to freshly sharpened wooden pencils, razor thin pencil leads, or expensive fountain pens, you'll be glad to hear absolutely no clunking sounds from your pencil case.
