The capsule designs perfectly convey the personality of each of the nine inks, bringing them to life in fantastical scenes that reinforce the brand story of Ferris Wheel Press. ‘Easter-egg’ elements are incorporated to reward those who take time to admire the finished product, providing moments of discovery. The canister is designed to be re-purposed as a desktop pen holder, and each bottle includes a velvet travel pouch for writers on the go.
