The Rule Breaker is a multifunctional ruler that can be used in its entirety or in two parts. This is made possible by the use of a magnet. In order to draw at a certain angle, for instance, one part can be fixed while the other is rotated. It is just as simple to draw parallel lines. The back of the ruler, which is made of aluminium alloy, is laser printed with font size and line thickness references to simplify work for graphic designers. The two parts of the ruler can be laid on top of each other to save space during transport.

Statement by the Jury

An astounding design concept turns The Rule Breaker ruler into a multifunctional tool that is of high practical value.
