PyeongChang


Staedtler at the Winter Games 2

Now that the Olympic Games in PyeongChang are slowly coming to an end and the Paralympics will start soon: Staedtler Noris colour pencils arranged in a specific shape you might find familiar. Over many years I have read again and again that the IOC is very protective of their trademarks (Wired had an article called Do not F@%! with the Olympics Logo a few years ago), so I won’t go into more details here what this is supposed to be 😉. I assume that my Welcome, PyongChang blog post didn’t break any rules and this one is hopefully sufficiently vague either, plus I don’t earn any money from the blog, no advertising here etc. so there are no commercial interests on my side if that makes any difference. Not that I expect the IOC to find a tiny blog like mine, but then again: AIs and machine learning can work wonders these days if they are looking for this kind of stuff.

Why such a click-baity title? It fits with the previous blog post title Staedtler at the Oscars and with so many people from all over the world in PyeongChang there’s bound to be a Staedtler pencil somewhere there.

PS: Since we are on the topic of PyeongChang again: Look what I saw in the language building of my University. Aren’t they cute?

Welcome, PyeongChang

You might agree that celebrating the start of the Olympic Games with pencils from the host nation is a fitting tribute [1]I got the pencils from Kent of Pencilog fame and the keychain from KBS World Radio..
