The ICON series is a trio of tastefully illustrated iPhone4/4S cases currently available from Cygnett. I was recently introduced to Cygnett through a PR contact in the States and sent the Hootsville model for review. One look at this case and I’m certain that my friends at Hootsuite will all want one.
The ICON series was designed by Australian born illustrator and artist Nathan Jurevicius, who now calls Toronto home.
It’s a beautiful little case with a low profile that’s easy to both put on and take off.
In addition to art galleries, Nathan Jurevicius works with several international companies including MTV, Warner Bros., Comedy Central US, StrangeCo and ABC TV.
I like the soft matte finish, with a rubberized coated texture and slim fit over the phone. This limited edition case is perfect for brightening up your phone with groovy art from Nathan’s fantasy world of Scarygirl, winner of both 2010 a FITC Award (game category) and in 2009 an Aurealis Award for Best Illustrated Book/Graphic Novel.
Scarygirl is one of the artist’s most notable projects. The book is described as a “psychedelic, dream-like composition of heartfelt stories and reinterpreted folklore based around a cute but slightly odd little girl and her giant octopus companion.”
An animated Scarygirl feature film is in development by Oscar-winning producer Sophie Byrne.
A few weeks ago, TechCrunch’s Jordan Crook called it the perfect iPhone case. It’s truly a beautiful piece of artwork that both graces and protects your phone.
The case comes with a small cleaning cloth and screen protector, and retails for US $39.99. All Cygnett products are covered under a two year warranty.
