IndieCases Makes Unique iPhone Cases

Indie Cases

IndieCases is a San Francisco based company that commissions top graphic artists to produce exclusive iPhone case designs, that are then posted to their Tumblr. Then, their community of 17,000+ followers provides feedback through likes and reblogs, and the designs that generate the most buzz are made and sold the following week. Quantities are limited to keep the selection fresh and unique, so you’re guaranteed to look good while keeping your phone protected.


…Jelli is here to kill the radio?

The radio is dead, and Jelli is here to replace it.

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit extreme, but the concept behind Jelli is a fascinating one, and does have the potential to change radio as we know it.


Essentially, Jelly is a single radio station that’s 100% listener controlled. Users can nominate songs, vote for songs they like, and bomb the ones they don’t, and the song with the most votes at the end of the currently playing track gets the next spot in line. The more you listen, the more power you gain, though even first timers have the ability to push a song over the edge.

The result is a mix of music that will surprise and delight, with an ever changing flow of community taste and creative control.

Just don’t expect to hear the Billboard Top 40 playing on repeat any time soon.


…Infectious ate Popdeck?

Infectious Eats Popdeck

Infectious has always been the place to go for some of the best artist designed iPhone skins, iPod skins, car decals, adhesive wall art and laptop art around, and now they’re the place to go for custom skateboard decks as well thanks to a recent purchase of Popdeck, the former skate deck champion.

Both Infectious and Popdeck are similar to Threadless in that artists can submit designs and then the community votes on the winners, which means each new piece of art is unique and there should be plenty to chose from to match your style.

To get the new and improved Popdeck purchase off the ground, Infectious is also hosting an art contest called the Skate Deck Design Challenge, and if your design is one of the first five to be picked to become a skate deck, you’ll win fabulous prizes that range from $1000 in cold hard cash to a limited edition, never to be sold “Infectious Eats Popdeck” skate deck.
