Dunno about you, but often I hate using thumb tacks (or drawing pins as we Brits call them) because they look, so, well… tacky. I stumbled upon these great pins the other day while looking for something else (don’t the best web finds start that way?) and thought they were a great way of holding your paper to the office notice board, and making your drawings look a little bit more bad-ass too!

Based on the Ninja throwing stars we’re familiar with after watching all those kung fu movies as kids, these pins are a great example of how someone has re-thought the simple thumb tack. This leads us to ask how you would redesign something which you use everyday and take for granted? Answers below in the comments boxes please.
