Everyone loves a cute case for their smart phone, right?
When uncommon offered me a chance to try their custom iPhone case ordering system, I was excited to create one for my husband. But then it got hard. A picture of the kids? Too cute. A picture of me? Too weird. His favorite sports team? Too logo-y. A solid color? Ok, but not really taking advantage of the ability to do a custom case. So here’s what I settled on.
I used a photo editing program to drop the color out of the photo and then I reduced the contrast a tone so that the design on the phone would be a lot more subtle than a vivid family photo. I know it’s still a bit much for him on an every day basis, but when he travels for business, he takes that cover with him.
Here are a few other manly cases I’ve spotted recently:
For the Spider-Man lover who has outgrown his Spider-Man lunchbox:

For the man who is more daring when it comes to texture than color:

For lovers of hardwood floors. (God, who wrote this copy? Oh, me.)
Another fun but totally not cute choice:
From incase on Amazon.com
What say you? Do you rock a hot pink cell phone case? I do. What does your partner have? What’s a good choice for a custom case design for a dude?
