Hello and welcome!
This is our first blog for the New Year (a bit late) but thankfully, ACME will be posting regularly from now on. We’ll tell you news, our views, some guest interviews and videos and a surprise or two along the way.
Firstly, we come to you from Maui, that’s our home and workplace. Not bad, huh?
It was a life choice made 25 years ago by Adrian and I and a dream come true. We are able to do business in many time zones – which makes for long days – yet feel the peace, serenity and beauty of the island.
Over the next few posts, I’ll be sending you more glorious images from the land of flowers and love.
As you know, ACME is fortunate to work with, and have worked with, so many famous and talented artists and designers. And, one of our favorites has always been Ettore Sottsass.

Having him design a writing instrument is one thing, but he also designed our home. The colors and positioning reflect his sensibility and ours.
Color and flexibility of purpose are the mainstay of ACME. We are so well known for the writing instruments but we do MORE! There’s so many ways to self express through the written/drawn word – and Acme does it all!

Well, this is the beginning of what we hope is a diaglogue between you and we, at ACME. We’d love your feedback on what you’d like to hear about from us, and do follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
