e-DIYed

Sometimes, great DIY projects don’t involve the lifting of a finger, or well, maybe just that.  I designed an iPhone case and an iPad sleeve with the wonderful folks at Caseable and was very pleased with how beautiful and fully-functional they turned out.  See, much as it would be fun to construct an iPad sleeve out of macaroni and jump rings, or vajazzle my iPhone with real Herkimer diamonds, frills might have to take a back seat to streamlined design when we’re talking about the gadgets with which I run my life.

Designing these tech cases was an easy process of uploading photos, centering them, picking out trim, adding text, and clicking to check out.  I also like that they’re hand-made out of recycled or sustainable materials.  Caseable products are made in Brooklyn, and the company also has offices in Berlin—two of my favorite cities in the world, one where I’m always at, and one where I’ve yet to go.

The marble is a photo-manipulated print I found, a nod to old Raf Simons and the new Wanglenciaga.
