Meet the Artist: Duncan Shotton

Duncan Shotton

Duncan is a designer from London who has brought his quirky, creative touch to Tokyo. He has blessed stationery lovers worldwide with his infamous rainbow pencils, which let you create paper rainbows when you sharpen them — genius! 

I’m a big fan and can’t wait to see what he creates next. Duncan’s products are simple and innovative, with a wee dash of humour. For those of you who ordered the very first My Bungu Box as a Xmas gift, your box was wrapped up in Duncan’s custom made minimal gift wrap which you can buy here on Etsy.

His mission is pretty simple — promote happiness and ensure people love what they’re doing, wherever they are and whoever they're there with. Now that’s something I can really get behind. And did I mention his rainbow pencils?

My Bungu Box featured a couple of Duncan's products in a Collaboration Box!

Random facts:

  1. Duncan tried to get mini cans of Irn Bru (Scotland’s No.1 soft drink, best known for curing hangovers) for his wedding in Tokyo, but the manufacturer, Barr’s, couldn’t help him out. As a Scot myself, I appreciate his effort

  2. Duncan is so bad at cooking that he picked up the nickname "rabbit" in his first week of uni because all he ate was raw celery and lettuce...makes sense since I also found out his favourite food is party rings
