You may be thinking I’m listing my grocery list. In fact, these are the names of Felissimo’s latest product.

Social Designer is the brainchild of Felissimo Group, (a global company that strives to promote social responsibility through good design) out of New York. Social Designer’s mission is to spark new thinking by encouraging the design of socially-relevant and creative totes and tees which they sell online through their shop.

The Social Designer is currently holding a competition for a new Felissimo product, 500 Coloured Pencils. If you’re interested you can check out the competition here. But for those who are interested to know what these 500 Coloured Pencils are all about, let me explain.

These inspirational 500 Coloured Pencils are any artists’ dream! Upon subscription (meaning purchase), a set of 25 uniquely hued and named coloured pencils are delivered to the purchaser monthly. Social Designer’s reason for the monthly deliveries is due to the fact that they want their users to focus as an artist, working with color families and feeling the precious nature of each pencil. Over the span of 20 months, the full set of pencils are acquired and the possibilities are endless! As the purchaser anticipates the next set of mystery coloured pencils, perhaps they can ponder if they would want to use them or collect and display them too.

Here are some of the unique ways that Social Designer suggests to show off your purchase:
