You know it. I know it. There’s no case for a boring case. So much the better when avoiding boring-case-fate can be accomplished by playing with an online customization engine that’s actually fun to use. Launched this week from the let’s-bring-bookbinding-into-the-21st-century minds over at San Francisco-based DODOCase is an online Build-A-DODOCase Customizer that lets you essentially play god with your next iPad 2/3 case.
Choose among patterns and colors for your case’s exterior and interior, opt for two-tone styling or a single look across the entire binding. Pick a color for the band, add a camera hole or leave them off entirely. You can also add a custom phrase in gold or black to your case’s cover and spine. Pricing starts at $79.95.
Also kinda cool: for the new tool’s debut, the tech case makers, who employ a team of trained bookbinders to produce their products, tapped a roster of well-knowns to create cases, among them Path’s Dave Morin, Foodspotting’s Alexa Andrzejewski and Gilt Group’s Alexandra Wilson. Perusing the results is a little window into the design aesthetic of people fueling products and companies you’re probably already into.
Neutral-on-neutral fiend that I am, I opted to combine the black Chevron print with a sand-colored spine. See below:
