i absolutely LOVE that.

i also like your other case idea. even if the nano already had a thousand cases out, I just love the originality and neat factor in yours.

i really would try and get your ideas to a company.

mcdj-

That looks amazing! You've posted some pretty amazing concepts. You're clearly a talented person. Have you approached any companies to get these products made?

Thanks GG, and everyone else,

I have not approached any companies. I may at some point, but I'm woefully unskilled at 3D, which in my past experience is key to getting paid to design stuff by the big boys.

A few years ago, I used to post similar Chops to a website devoted to wristwatch collectors. Eventually I was approached by Microsoft and asked to do some concept designs for the SPOT watches. The gig lasted nearly 3 years. I'm sort of hoping the same will happen with my pod ideas, but I'm not holding my breath. Actually I was up for a full time job at MS in Feb., but they passed once they found out I don't know 3D or Flash.

Lately I've been doing freelance work for MTV for their partnership with Motorola, creating skins and icons for cellphones in the international market...I much prefer 2D stuff like this. I also have a small stable of commerical photographers here in NYC that I do retouching for.

All that said, if anyone is interested in any of my concepts, I'm all ears!

love your work

you should at least put together a site for your work, so that people can link to it and just spread the word around, like this guy...

Isamu Sanada

btw there's a guy called Mike Matas that designed a bit of software called Delicious Library, that so impressed Apple, that they hired him...

awesome man!




30gb iPod photo- has been sent to my aunt. She loves it, and is very careful with it, as I've heard. Hopefully I can get it back when the battery dies or the hard drive fails.

30gb iPod video- just got it as of 12/13/05 YAY!!!

Putting together your own website for your designs is a good idea. Who knows what good will come out of it. Your very talented and I would love to see that case on the market for the nano.
