I realize that this post might be a borderline advertisement plug but I was not requested to do this. I truly have become a marker snob. My Agile For All team introduced me to Neuland Markers two years ago and now I turn my nose up at other markers.
Short top reasons I love these markers:
- I’m left-handed. Do you know how hard it is to find pens and markers that don’t end up all over my hand?!?!? The only time I’ve had ink on me is when I try to get greedy and juggle four markers in my hand at once.
- They are refillable. I am not the world’s best with my environmental footprint, so every little bit helps.
- There are a variety of colors and are always bright with each use.
- I’m able to throw them in one bag and easily carry them around with me for trainings. This probably applies to all markers but whatever 🙂
- I have the “Big One” versions and normal – so my options for graphic facilitation have increased
- Maybe I would have experienced this with other markers (more about timing) but since I didn’t – Neuland gets credit. I’m challenging myself to draw more. Jake Calabrese and I even have an ongoing friendly contest over drawing an elephant.
Do you have a tool that has made you a snob?
