We love our smartphone and our phone case brings personality to our precious device. Samsung are pleased to announce the launch of Art Cover. This project allows consumers the freedom to create their own phone cover. Alternatively, they can choose from a series of covers designed by up-and-coming Australian artists for their smartphone.
Some of the range of pre-designed covers have been designed by four Australian up-and-coming artists: Candy Ng, Hayley O’Conner, Kayle Whitham and George Nova. Their designs include cartographic, vintage and graffiti/typography prints. These are available for purchase online or in the Melbourne and Sydney Experience Stores.
This initiative continues to highlight Samsung’s ongoing support for Australian artists, providing them with a global platform to showcase their creativity and talent.
In addition to offering pre-designed cases, consumers will also have the chance to express their own creativity by designing their own Art Cover for their Samsung GALAXY smartphone. Launching before Christmas, Art Cover will give consumers the option of uploading their own image or creating their own design through Samsung Art Cover.
