At Moleskine we believe in the timeless power of handwriting as an essential expression of human civilization, a powerful act to unleash human genius and foster the development and sharing of literacy and knowledge. In a fast-paced technological era, we proudly celebrate the artistry of the human touch; the enduring pleasure of putting pen to paper to unleash your unique voice. We celebrate the solemn, thoughtful and meditative gesture of the pen gliding across a blank page; the romance of crafting a personal story to record a lifelong memory and leave a distinguishing mark in all its unique beauty. Handwriting is both universal and deeply personal. It’s a thoughtful way to express your true self and connect to others in a very intimate yet universally accessible way.
Put pen to paper, and unleash your unique voice.
Moleskine partners with TEDxShanghai 2021 to honor the transformative power of handwriting, its role as a hallmark of human connection, and engine for the generation and sharing of ideas.
With its mission to provide a platform for “Ideas worth spreading”, TED has become a world-leading humanity-focused space for innovative thinking, creativity and culture.
Starting from our shared values, this event celebrated the role of handwriting in growing and moving ideas. Indeed, some of the world’s most extraordinary discoveries were born from words and sketches recorded by hand on a blank page, from the notes of artists, thinkers, explorers and scientists.
Brenna Jordan, master calligrapher and author of The Lost Art of Handwriting is on a mission to help people rediscover the beauty, power and transformative benefits of handwriting. The American artist has built a growing community where she shares accessible tools, tips and exercises to enable people to find the value, joy and relaxation in putting pen to paper.
To celebrate International Handwriting Day, we talk to Jordan about her creative journey so far, her devotion to the craft and how she developed her unique visual style.
