freitag iPhone case

One of my favorite possessions is my iPhone. One of my favorite companies is Freitag. So when the Freitag iPhone sleeve came out, I had to have one.
Freitag is a Swiss messenger bag company that also makes other products to carry/protect things. Everything they make has had a previous life as a truck tarp, seat belt or a bike inner tube. Not only are their designs aesthetically pleasing, their products are extremely functional and durable. The coolest feature of the iPhone sleeve is that it has an internal strap on the backside that allows you to slide the iPhone out of the sleeve effortlessly. This design has actually inspired some of my package designs at work.
I just placed an order for my second iPhone sleeve...only because I lost my original last weekend.

Next up is a messenger bag and a mac sleeve.

the start

Here it is, my first blog. Although I feel the need to post something really profound on my first ever blog posting, I am going to keep it simple. I don't know which direction I want this blog to take, but you can rest assured that a lot of it will revolve around bikes, packaging, food, books and music. There will also be a lot of nonsense postings about living in one of the best cities in the world. So, welcome! Feel free to post comments. Enjoy the ride!
