Pilot pen design?

Anyone here know who the design team is behind Pilot pens? is it in-house? did it change recently?
Pilot had a really nice Vball pen design (short and stubby), unfortunately it was recently replaced by an over designed newer version.

I miss my old pens!

Well CASPER, I am not sure who the design team is for Pilot pens, maybe u should ask Yo or YHK, they may know?

Oh, and by the way CASPER, i think you are so good looking!

Oh I think its… nah, I got nothin’. Though I’d give it a try.

Hey, cross’s new stuff is done in house though, they have a new design director, named mark something or other, who was one of the lead designers at Kawasaki.

speaking of yo… do you guys at Nike get heaps of products pitched to you by outside designers/companies. Do Nike ever take on licensing deals?

I am the horse!
