un design: UN01 iphone photography case

production mockup of the UN01 photography case

the iphone is a camera with the possibility of instant sharing across
multiple networks, with this in mind the california based brothers at
un design have developed a way to get it out of your pocket and in
front of you where it should be. the UN01 is a simple 2.5mm protective
plastic slide case with a neck strap that encourages the user to rotate
the phone into a landscape orientation and places it at chest level,
ready for use whenever needed.

to replicate the realism of using a camera, the body style and raised
lens design are inspired by point and shoot cameras. the case is a two
piece assembly that slides over the phone and is fastened secure by
a center locking ring.

kickstarter users should head over to their project page, pledges start at
30 USD for a white or black version. five more interchangeable colors are
planned on once the project is initially backed.

just finding an iphone and getting it ready to take a picture sometimes
can take too long or convince you that the photo opportunity just is no
longer worth the time and energy. this illustration captures the user’s ability
to instantly have a conversation about what you are doing or end up just being
sad when you cannot share something you wanted to.
