This Composition Case for the iPad is very popular in our shop! And I don’t blame you, this one’s definitely on the top of my charts too!
As fate would have it, the Hard Cover Case for the iPad 1 as well as the Folio Case for the iPad 2 and The New iPad came in at the same time. Each case type has its pro’s and con’s. In my opinion, it just depends on what you use your iPad for most. That’ll dictate what case type fits you should choose.
The Hard Cover case is great when it comes to flexibility of design. You can design the outer AND the inner cover. I love how we designed the inside of the case to look like notebook paper. 🙂 For the iPad 2 and the New iPad, the hard cover case has an opening for the back camera. You can also tilt your iPad in landscape mode on all versions of this cover. In our fall edition, this case will get tons of upgrades so stay tuned for those!
The Folio Case on the other hand has its own set of benefits. The folio case is printed on canvas and has a leather spine, which fits great with this design. Though you can’t design the inside of this case, it has a beautiful faux suede lining. Only thing is, if you take pictures with your iPad I wouldn’t suggest this case. BUT! We’ll have some upgrades to this case for our fall designs too. We’ve just got a whole bunch of exciting things coming to you, don’t we?! 😉
I actually use this case for my iPad right now. I love the protection, multi-level tilting, the sleek design, and since I don’t use the camera on my iPad it works for me 🙂
Throughout this month, Charlie and I have been working tirelessly to get designs up onto our online store. It’s been a very meticulous process, but it’s all been worth it! Slowly but surely our designs are getting put up and I’m so happy we’re almost done for the Summer ’12 line. After this is done, our next project is our look book. I know that’s going to be such a big undertaking. But I’m excited about it at the same time.
I’ve been transitioning my role and the way it affects the company. I’ve been digging deep and really making tough decisions these past few months. Based on our personal and professional goals and a lot of prayer I think I’m finally walking down the right path. At the end of last month, I decided to focus solely on graphic design. CO will continue to provide graphic design and web services, invitations and custom stationery, as well as iPhone and iPad cases.
I was going back and forth about this decision as the past 7 years of my life have been dedicated to the wedding planning industry. To let go of that aspect of my life and career was very difficult for me. I worked so hard, I planned so many events, I met so many great people, and me giving up would mean I failed.. All I thought about was why I should stay. But slowly, it started to crumble away and I started to realize why I should leave. In fact, the last 3 years have been me going back and forth about it. Instead of wanting an answer that same day (cuz that’s just how I roll), I decided to let go and let God. And quickly, he gave me the answer.
Now, I couldn’t be happier! Things have been moving along on my new career path swimmingly and I’m incredibly excited about where my new career path is going to take me. Letting go of my old path may mean I failed, or it may not. But what matters most is that I don’t care. It just means I fell and got back up, better than ever.
Since I’m in a happy mood we’re going to do a contest in June! We’re going to be giving away a free iPad case and a free iPhone in celebration! Stay tuned for details everyone!
My design style has really mimicked my personal life in so many ways – it’s been everywhere. But this past year has really pushed me to define my style and aesthetic. I’ve learned so much about myself and that has helped me narrow down what I find visually appealing. I took a hiatus and stuck to brand conceptualizing for many years. Part of this was due to lack of confidence, trying out different career paths, etc. But since I started designing again I found that trying to do anything and everything was doing nothing but holding me down. I knew I needed to sit down and do some thinking. What is my design style? Ask me yesterday, and I wouldn’t even begin to tell you. This needed to be fixed PRONTO!
So, I sat and looked at all my old work. Work that I was proud of, and work that I didn’t want to look at ever again. And I realized that my design style is a representation of me and my personality.
Simple and clean
Less is more
This is the kind of design I love! Every piece is a direct reflection of my client’s personality. It’s something that may not be “in style” but is something that my clients love because it screams character.
