Daily Drop Cap Phone Cases

As a consequence of my indecisiveness and general inertia, I have been without a phone case for months. Then I dropped my phone into a lake during an ill-fated kayaking trip last weekend, and that loss catapulted me into a new phase of responsibility and resolve — I must take better care of my belongings, especially those of great value to my everyday life.

The last case I had was a capsule case from Uncommon with my own custom photograph printed on it. I was extremely happy with the quality of the case, and I’m thrilled to see that they have teamed up with type designer extraordinaire Jessica Hische to offer a collection of her Daily Drop Caps as case designs for both iPhones and iPads. Luckily, I’m not too attached to the idea that I have to choose my own initial, so every letter is fair game. It’s not an easy choice, especially with my aforementioned tendency to waffle, but I think I’m leaning toward that gorgeous “L” for lake — to remind me to shape up my behavior. :) You can shop the full collection here. — Kate


I like these….very good gift for the font lover/graphic designer in your circle of family and friends. Maybe I could get one that wraps the letter K with some strands of yarn and knitting needles (the circular variety).
