About

A FUNCTIONAL iPHONE CASE WITH ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

Story: I've been a part of MobileTogs since the beginning. A concept for a fashionable, functional phone case spurred a small group of friends to pursue a dream - to create it! We spent much time and effort to finally get to a prototype, but wow, has it been a ride! Helping to launch and brand this project has been the most exciting, and sometimes trying thing I've ever done. Our first product, The Looker iPhone case, which has a scratch-resistant and shatterproof mirror and pocket for essential cards, has made great strides raising awareness for the "no-name" brand togs over the past nine months. And as more and more people get their hands on the case, more and more ideas come to the table of, “how can we make this project grow from a single product to an entire line of functional iPhone cases?”  

That’s how we came up with The Designer. It has all the same great features of The Looker, but transforming the product into The Designer instills a whole new level of excitement. It started with our Fashion Blogger, Caroline Dengel, doodling with nail polish on the mirrors, and her fans loving the idea. The concept of individuality is so important in today’s society that we couldn't resist finding out how to make our product fit perfectly in our customize-everything world.

Process: The process is simple. We’re taking a product that is already in the market and giving people the option to make it more personal by printing on the mirrors. The printing is not done in-house, but by a company here in the United States with a good reputation and skills when it comes to the entire “printing on anything” industry. It gives us great pride to be able to help a fellow small business out by bringing them this new opportunity. This entire project is a great way to help other small businesses and artists grow and boost our product line. We couldn't be more grateful to have a shot at this amazing opportunity.

Function: The Designer is made of impact absorbent material that is smooth and comfortable to touch. Another great feature of The Designer is the card pocket to keep your essentials close at hand. Phone? Check. ID? Check. Credit Card? Check.

Individuality: Show the world what your about. The Designer lets you choose custom designed artwork from some amazing independent artists. Don't see yourself in one of our designs? No problem! Upload your own graphic, logo, or picture of your fave furkid and show your stuff off to everyone you come in contact with.

Fashion: Are you an avid mirror user and tired of using worthless iPhone "mirror" apps that don't work? Worry no more! The printed area of The Designer is a scratch resistant, shatterproof mirror. And if you're not into the whole mirror-thing, you can get your design printed on the back side (and still have an easy-access mirror on-hand to use when no one is looking!).

Designs: We just wanted to add a quick note to let you know that all of the designs you see will be available for purchase once our campaign is funded. So, keep this in mind when you're picking your reward level!

Thank You's: It just wouldn't be right if we didn't give a couple nods to some of the people who already believe in The Designer:

Risks and challenges

To the end, we will work with you showing proofs & getting approvals before printing each custom mirror for your pledge. Because while we would love to see our independent artist's work on your case, we also want to see your designs!

We can confidently ship out The Designer with our artist's work within 4 weeks, but because ensuring your design or photo is exactly the way you envision it, custom orders may take longer for us to create.
