To continue my research into kids products I have began looking into technology items like phone and tablet cases, as these are common items stocked within Cath Kidston stores. These items aren't necessarily specifically for children but I feel that the use of print and colour would be engaging to them.
I love the bright colours on these elephants and how a large range of simple patterns have been incorporated inside. The shapes have been repeated but not in a regulated way. I also like how a different colour way has been displayed, showing its versatility alongside the main print that has been applied also to and iPad case. The next example of the birds takes on a very similar approach and is equally as successful.
I like the bold and bright colours used within these two cases and how the different elements have been arranged. The first shows a more traditional scene with all the illustrations placed in a way that gives the impression of a landscape. Whereas in contrast the second examples takes the different elements and places them in a way to create a pattern. I feel both work well and I could experiment with both styles when designing my own cases.
These examples are very simple with a white background and focus strongly on the single portrait of the characters. They aren't the most innovative but they would still attract a child if they were familiar with the character.
Finally there is this case that is definitely very child friendly, and focuses on visual aesthetic much more than usability.
