Leo Burnett.

Visit the home of the Big Black Pencil for one of the coolest-designed websites around.

“Big black pencils are as much a part of Leo Burnett as that ever-present bowl of crisp apples. Why? Because Leo believed big ideas come out of big pencils.”

I sat here for a half hour playing with the pencil and the links. Who is Leo Burnett? Check out the Wikipedia article about him:

“Leo Burnett (October 21, 1891 – June 7, 1971) was an advertising executive famous for creating such icons as the Jolly Green Giant, the Marlboro Man, the Pillsbury Doughboy and Tony the Tiger.”

[Thanks for the link, Armand!]

Have a terrific weekend! Hopefully, we’ll be able to review the new Dixon Tri-Conderoga next week sometime.
