UK based design duo Eley Kishimoto (Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto) have lent their iconic “Flash” print to our signature protective products. The Incase 13″ MacBook Pro Sleeve, iPad Sleeve and the Slider Case for iPhone 4 have been treated with the bold graphic, representing the perfect balance between creative flair and simple execution.
“Being an avid user of Incase accessories, I found their products to be the perfect platform to express our creative ideas,” said Mark Eley, Eley Kishimoto founder. “We have manipulated a variety of surfaces and materials in the past, from concrete to ceramics to motor vehicles. With the Incase collaboration, it was an opportunity to communicate the quality and integrity of both brands’ approach to design, collaboration and product.”
From a partnership forged in the early 90s, Eley Kishimoto quickly gained a reputation for incisive and intelligent print design. Their creations have been displayed on the runways of the world through their work with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander, among others. Although they primarily work in fashion, they have also collaborated with partners to offer a wide range of footwear and accessories, as well as wallpaper, furniture, fabrics and more.
The Incase | Eley Kishimoto collection is our latest collaborative project within the fashion world, following previous co-branded releases with Paris fashion boutique colette featuring art by Gareth Pugh and Japanese menswear brand uniform experiment.
“Technology and fashion are almost inseparable these days, and we are playing a key role in this convergence,” said Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “Eley Kishimoto has a strong visual identity and positioning which I respect and admire on many levels and the partnership brings a fresh perspective that people can relate to.”
The Incase | Eley Kishimoto products are part of a capsule collection of accessories for Apple device users with an appreciation of fashion and technology. The collection will officially launch at London Fashion Week and London Design Festival 2010.

As part of our ongoing Featured Apps series, we take a closer look at Korg’s iElectribe for iPad. With a four-part percussion synthesizer, 16-step sequencer, 64 preset patterns and more, iElectribe harnesses all the fun of analog synth-style beatmaking.
Stones Throw recording artist Oh No uses up to three iPads at a time to create beats. Here’s what he had to say about the process:
When you look at the iPad, everybody thinks it’s just for books. It’s more than just iBooks; it’s pretty much an everything pad. We used to use the old school Korg1, the SP12. Now you have Reason and MPCs and the iPad, which has everything that [those devices] had, plus more. You can tweak everything…. It’s open. It’s unlimited now.
iElectribe is available now at Apple’s App Store for a special introductory price of $9.99 (regular price: $19.99). Promotional pricing expires June 30, 2010.

When people ask me for advice on how to become an architect, I always recommend life drawing. Sketching the human form involves proportion, structure and shading, all of which are fundamental aspects of architecture. Things like iPad and Layers start to change this, when you can draw on the screen.
Even if you’re not an architect, you can still use Layers to draw on photos or paint masterpieces, no matter where you are.
Jeremy and Claire Weiss are Day19, an award-winning husband-and-wife team of photographers who use the CameraBag App on their iPad to apply a variety of filters to their photos. The Travel Kit Plus allows Jeremy and Claire to take their iPad on location and keep it protected at all times.
Stones Throw recording artist Oh No uses the Korg iElectribe App on up to three iPads at a time to create his signature sound. The Grip Protective Cover, featuring contours for enhanced grip and flex-fit construction for easy iPad attachment, gives Oh No the freedom he needs to work on music and perform anywhere
As Design Principal at Marmol Radziner, renowned architect Ron Radziner utilizes the Layers App on his iPad to capture his award-winning ideas. The Convertible Book Jacket, with its multiple viewing angles and complete iPad protection, offers Ron the flexibility to work from virtually anywhere.
Create. Express. Protect.
