Stationery, like everything else, evolves to get better. The quill became the fountain pen, the messy fountain pen became the roller ball, and because the roller ball couldn’t write upside down, the first ever gel pen was made. We’re seeing a similar evolution with highlighters. The Promark View by Uni comes with a partly transparent nib, allowing you to see past it while highlighting sentences.
The biggest complaint with highlighters is that since the nib is designed to highlight words, what it also does is obstruct words ahead of it, making it difficult to know when to stop highlighting. The Promark View helps make highlighting convenient with its innovative nib design that gives you a clear view of what’s ahead! Hey Copic and Prismacolor, how about some partly transparent alcohol markers for us designer folks, am I right??
