ACME Studios is an international product design company, which produces and markets writing instruments, stationery accessories, watches, men's silk ties, men's accessories, and other design objects. Its products are the result of cooperation with the world's leading architects, designers, artists, foundations, estates and institutions. ACME Studios was founded in Los Angeles in 1985 by Adrian Olabuenaga and his wife, Lesley Bailey. ACME made its first appearance with a limited edition collection of jewelry designed for them by Peter Shire, the LA-based member of the world renowned Memphis Group. In 1996, ACME began to organize a new category to explore; writing instruments! The first collection, which featured designs by Frank Lloyd Wright, Piet Mondrian, Michael Graves, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and others, was released in 1997 at the New York Stationery Show, to an overwhelming response. Starting in 2000, ACME revolutionized writing instruments by developing several new pen making techniques, which allows the designer to create new shapes, and new pen technology, using a variety of materials. In 2009, ACME went further and produced the first biodegradable, disposable pen with an ergonomic and also Earth-friendly design. Always on the cutting edge of design, ACME's writing tools revolutionized a new concept in the pen industry. Having collaborated with hundreds of top designers over the years, ACME has secured their reputation in both the pen and design industries with their fine writing tools.
