A while ago, a phone case company that sports the funniness name 'Mr Nutcase' (see, I told you - super fun!) asked me if I wanted to design a phone case. Excited at the prospect of finally owning a new unique case for my not-so-new HTC One X was, well......pretty exciting in fact. When it comes to gadgetries, creativity and such, I'm a bit of a sucker.
Alas, Mr Nutcase didn't offer a case for my good old phone - That'll teach me - so, I decided to design an illustration for my mum's phone (a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini) instead as an additional birthday present. So I sketched a few designs and ran them through photoshop and mum chose this design and colour combination.
Once scan in and edited in photoshop, it was easy peasy uploading the picture to the site, positioning and then repositioning the image to make it look "just so". After submitting the order, I received the case within a week.
Personally, for me, the case had an unfinished feel to it - it had a rather matt finish and I was worried that the paint would chip/rub off relatively easy - especially when in mum's handbag! Maybe it wouldn't come off, I don't know. However, I bought a clear craft spray enamel for plastic etc and gave the case a few layers! It looked and felt so much more durable afterwards.
The artwork looked just as I expected; good quality printing with none of that stretching nonsense that can happen with things like this - overall Mum and I both are delighted with the result :)
