Happy New Year! We are kicking off 2019 with kakizome!

2018 was a incredible year, with several updates to Cyant’s Lab™, new templates, new 3D printed creations and opening our Etsy store, an incredible #CyantistWeLove feature, inspirational art and “#CyantistsOfTheirTime”, and cyantists of all ages met along the way, including at the New York Maker Faire 2018!

We ended 2018 with Hokusai’s inspirational art as our last Instagram post of the year, so we thought it would only be fitting to start the New Year with the equally inspiring Japanese tradition of kakizome to celebrate the start of 2019! While a special ink and calligraphy brush are traditionally used to write one’s resolution for the year, we opted for a cyantific approach and used Cyant’s Lab™ to 3D draw ours! ;) Our chosen characters? 創造力: Sozoryoku or creativity naturally! :) And following our mission, our resolution is to continue to connect art and technology to foster learning and creativity for as many cyantists as possible!

Inspired by the tradition and want to 3D draw and 3D print your own characters for this year? We’ve added new grid templates to make it easier to 3D draw kanji, hiragana, and katakana characters for those still learning! And ruled grids are of course still available to guide those who want to write their word in English! :)

And with this, we wish all Cyantists a happy, peaceful and creative New Year. What will you create? :)
