Korean-born Rostarr is a multidisciplinary artist, painter and filmmaker living and working in Brooklyn. For the past 15 years, he’s blurred the lines between graphic design and art and is best known for his colorful abstract polymorphic paintings, totemic iconographic characters and black and white calligraphic drawings.
The Rostarr series for Curated by Arkitip includes a Snap Case for iPhone 4, Book Jacket for iPad and 15″ Sleeve for MacBook Pro and will be available on May 25.
We are proud to unveil our collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. This distinctive collection features Warhol’s artwork applied to select cases, sleeves and bags for iPhone, iPad and MacBook.
As a cutting-edge visual artist, Warhol understood and embraced technology and saw it as the future of contemporary culture and the arts. Warhol once said “A lot of people could help me with parts and segments of the business, but only a computer would be totally useful to me…A computer would be a very qualified boss.” Fittingly, Incase for Andy Warhol fuses his artwork our technology-driven designs. We launch this continuing series with Warhol’s late-era Camouflage and the Banana screen print created in 1966, which also appeared on the cover of The Velvet Underground & Nico’s self-titled debut album. Additional signature Warhol graphics are featured on our iPhone Snap Cases including his striking 1964 Flowers print, Dollar Signs (1982), a wry commentary on art as a consumer item, and a colorful cow portrait taken from his whimsical 1966 Cow Wallpaper.
“It’s an absolute honor to work within the legacy of one of the most influential individuals to touch the world of art and pop culture,” says Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “Andy Warhol was known for pushing boundaries and redefining convention, something that we greatly admire and exercise at every opportunity.”
“Incase has created an exciting collection that taps in to the creative, non-conformist spirit of Andy Warhol and embodies his sophisticated sense of design, ” says Michael Hermann, Director of Licensing at The Andy Warhol Foundation. “Incase for Andy Warhol is a fitting tribute to the artist who continues to inspire us to think differently.”
On Wednesday, April 6, Incase and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts will host a private event in New York to celebrate the launch of Incase for Andy Warhol. The event will draw from Warhol’s seemingly prescient stance on technology and its effect on popular culture with interactive art installations, as well as showcase the newly released collection. The entire event will be captured on video via iPhone 4 and will be streaming live on goincase.com.
Select Incase for Andy Warhol products are available today with additional products coming soon and available for pre-order. Incase for Andy Warhol will be available soon through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and discerning boutiques worldwide.

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.
The seventh installment of Curated by Arkitip is now available, featuring works by multimedia artist C.R. Stecyk III. From his early work on boards he painted for the Z-Boys to his iconic black and white photography of surf and skate legends, Stecyk is widely acknowledged as a major stylistic influence within graffiti and street art movements.
Stecyk’s work for Curated by Arkitip highlights iconic imagery and color combinations representative of the early days of modern skate and surf culture. The 15″ MacBook Pro Sleeve features an early Stecyk photograph of Jay Adams, one of the original Z-Boys considered a progenitor of modern-day skateboarding. Stecyk’s skull design for the iPhone 3GS Snap Case recalls graffiti art that typified skateboarding in its early days, such as Stecyk’s infamous Pig and Crossbones graffiti piece that became a symbol for the nascent culture’s attitude and style.
In celebration of the release of the Stecyk series, Incase and Arkitip have worked with C.R. Stecyk to produce a limited-edition of 100 signed screen prints of the skull design featured on the iPhone 3GS Snap Case. The prints are available exclusively through Arkitip and at Project Space in Los Angeles located at 603 N. La Brea Avenue.
C.R. Stecyk III brings his mixed media artistry to the signature Incase 15″ Sleeve and iPhone 3GS Snap Case. Employing photography, graffiti and screen printing techniques, the C.R. Stecyk III products for Curated by Arkitip feature iconic imagery and colorways representative of early surf and skate culture.
The 15″ C.R. Stecyk III Sleeve and iPhone 3GS Snap Cases will be available on August 17.
