I am one of the biggest Kickstarter fans I know. I have seen so many amazing design-related projects funded through their site, and every time one of those ideas meets its goal and comes to life, I want to give everyone at Kickstarter a big hug. Today I came across another great project that’s looking for funding via Kickstarter. Designer Don Lehmen created these genius little stylus attachments that cap on to a pen or marker and work perfectly on touchscreens like an iPad. It’s such a simple idea but so clever. Rather than carrying around a special pen, you just need this one precise tip to attach to any pen or marker you have in your purse. While this may not be an everyday accessory for someone like me, I feel like all of the professional artists, designers and architects in my community would get so much use out of an object like this. Don is looking for funding to complete his work of making sure the tip of each cap is as precise as possible (to replicate the sharpness of a real pen), so if you’re interested in lending a hand, click here to check out the project in detail and donate. Best of luck, Don! xo, grace
