Naomi Meller

"As a child I loved painting and drawing, I loved creative writing. My parents supported my passion for the arts and for as long as I can remember supplied me with sketch pads, paint brushes, and as I got older it turned into a drawing table and an easel. I always did my best work in art classes when I had to the freedom to create entirely from my own imagination. As a high school student, my art career was looking really great. The road hasn't been easy. When I had my daughter, I fell gravely ill and the recovery process was long. But these are life experiences. Instead of ruminating, now I create. From them I've grown, and have been able to draw new perspectives, find inspiration. I'm self-taught, and I continue to learn on a daily basis. There are always new points of view to explore. My best work has always come from following instinct. Any time I think too much or too long I usually end up trashing whatever it is I'm working on. And following instinct is how I came to create Computer iPhone. I was sitting at my computer, my iPhone plugged in next to me. After thinking about what factors would be cool and functional on an iPhone case, I grabbed a piece of the broken computer that my husband had in the office, and took some pictures. I did my editing. Now Computer iPhone has been added to my list of great accomplishments, and I am so proud to be working with UncommonGoods."

                  Naomi's design - putting the inner technology on the outside - is so unique. Would you make your iPhone stand out in this uncommon case?

                  Apple design is so sleek, minimalist, empty. This case upends their entire design philosophy with one quick snap. I love it.

                  I like how you can see the dust on the circuit board. Finally, a designer that isn't obsessed with making everything so glossy and fake.

                  Thank you! Since an iPhone case is supposed to protect our phones, I also think that if dropped or bumped, my design would prove to be less obvious with dirt, scratches, and wear and tear. I really appreciate everyone's comments and votes.

                  I wanted to say thank you again. To those I know, and those I don't know who appreciate this design. The votes and comments mean so much. I also wanted to say that I do think that this design has universal appeal (with the rise of digital age I think the terms like "nerd" have faded). I created the design thinking that it would be a funky and ironic twist covering an iPhone. And I think people are appreciating that. I thank you guys so much.

                  Caroline I wanted to thank you for your vote and comment. The design is original to me, as I hadn't seen it before. I grabbed a motherboard from our home and edited it to work on a case. But I also appreciate that if you bought something similar, I guess that means there's a market for it, which is good too! :)

                  This is just a snapshot of the interior of any piece of technology. IMHO There's not much going for it in terms of composition or color. Golly, I really don't like this.

                  I would want a case that was a fashion statement not a fashion understatement.
