Brighton-based artist Ben Allen has teamed up with the iPhone case pros over at Proporta to launch snazzy new range of Jesus Phone coverings. Allen (whose work has been bought by celebrities including Richard Branson, Stephen Dorff and Jade Jagger) will initially launch two iPhone 4 cases, Skull and Zebra, before expanding the range later in the year.
Drawing influence from as wide-ranging sources as comic book covers to Mexico’s “Day of the Dead”, Allen’s colourful designs look set to give the iPhone’s sleek lines an edgy makeover.
“This is a great project and I am excited not only to be working with Proporta, but also to see the reaction to my designs and how they translate onto these products,” Allen commented.
Lynnette Prigmore, Head of Products for Proporta, was equally enthusiastic; “We’re really pleased to introduce Ben Allen as part of the new ‘Proporta Collaborates’ collection. Not only is Ben a fellow Brighton local, but his paintings have also been exhibited in galleries and venues worldwide. We anticipate that this new collection will be very well received. Our customers are becoming much more design focused and want to accessorise, as well as protect, their mobile gadgets.”
