WriteyDesk - The Smudge-Proof, Dry Erase Desk

$30,774

WriteyDesk is the new sleek, smudge-proof desk that you can write on and erase!

Our latest project at WriteyBoard was to optimize the very workstation you spend the majority of your day.

A Whiteboard-Desk Hybrid

Over two years in development, the WriteyDesk brings the versatility and clarity of a whiteboard to the place where you do most of your thinking: your desk. 

"But... Won't I Just Get Marker On My Sleeves?"

Good Question. Great Answer: Nope!

Your WriteyDesk will not only include 4-pack of dry erase markers but 8 of our "Smudge Proof", Liquid Chalk, NEON markers! Besides who writes where your forearms sit?

Drawing and writing down momentary reminders at reaching distance, there is always the possibility an object can come in contact with your notes. Smudge-proof markers are the answer to all your concerns.

The Solution for Next Level Productivity

The ability to give every thought or reminder the attention it needs to bloom into a successful action was our motivation in creating this desk.

 The most striking feature is the entire top surface is a dry-erase playground.

WriteyDesk - White

One surface we are offering backers is the White dry erase surface.

This clean, modern white desktop offers users a contrasting surface for a classic brainstorm session.

WriteyDesk - Birchwood

What makes this project so unique is you don't have to sacrifice wooden aesthetics for a dry erase desk.

Our other surface is birchwood. That's right, a desktop that looks like a natural wood desk but it's 100% dry erase-able.

 

Believe your eyes.
Believe your eyes.

It's time to stop making excuses and create solutions! Instantly write down what comes to mind and expedite your critical and creative thinking. Time to Think Out Loud!

A Modern Foundation

The desks structure is also beautiful. Smooth contours and a contemporary “Z”-leg design gives it a stand-out look. 

You can also insert a bookshelf at the top of the legs for extra storage and stability. 

Getting Down to Business

Jot down phone numbers, brainstorms, vagrant thoughts, quadratic equations, important notes, and essential graphic diagrams...

 

If a colleague comes along and doesn't understand something... Move a few belongings aside and you've got a vast dry erase canvas to shed light on the situation.

 

 

No need to seek out a piece of paper or open an application. Record what you only need for a while, then erase to clear space for your next brainstorm.

Who (or what) is WriteyBoard?

We are Writeyboard, a Mark Cuban company, and we love whiteboards. Think about why whiteboards are in classrooms all around the world. They effectively engage masses into a higher level of clarity understanding.

In our strides to create affordable whiteboard technology for everyone, we have positively changed the way individuals and companies get the most out of their creative workflow.

 

Risks and challenges

Our mission is to give everyone dry erase surfaces that are not only easy to use but also don't disturb the aesthetics of the working environment. Producing a desk that stands out as a modern workstation while having a seamless dry erase writing surface wasn't an easy task. The biggest challenge we faced was to make significant changes to our whiteboard paint formula. WriteyBoard's Transparent Whiteboard Paint was designed to self-level on a vertical surface (the typical indoor wall). Applying our Whiteboard Paint to a horizontal surface proved to be a complicated process which we overcame and the results were amazing.
