Autograph The Best

Autograph The Best

Steve Jobs may have intended the iPhone to be carried naked because of its Good Design, but he probably didn’t take into consideration the elements, butter fingers and our need to luxe things up. Thankfully we have a few designers who understand our needs and Truffol is one of them. Sexing up the iPhone5 / 5S and the Samsung GalaxyS4 is a much easier thing thanks to their latest Personalized Leather Skin Series called the Autograph.

For The Sake Of Painters

For The Sake Of Painters

I don’t paint and have never used a paint can in my life. But that doesn’t mean innovation for paint cans should stop. In fact this Easy Ring design can be used for any standard can. Physics, pressure techniques and a lot of clever thinking makes this a very intriguing design. What do you think?

YD has recently moved from a virtual office setup to an actual office setup. As design advocates we had to reflect modern design in our office, so we got our team Apple gear.
