My ///M Case Design

Hey,

I was trying to find a BMW ///M themed case for my new iphone 5, but I was unable to find anything.

So I decided to make my own, what do you guys think?

I also posted it in zazzle, in case anyone wanted to buy it:
http://www.zazzle.com/designbyjm?rf=238486948111052032

But I was just curious what people's feedback are on it.

Thanks.

I'm not sure if you used the same site but there is one where they let you put any image you want on an iPhone case. Sounds more like what you were looking for but that looks pretty cool too

I like it but I personally don't think that it represents M very well. The curving lines remind me of Porsche instead. The colors are right on but the M moniker has always been represented by those colors in a straight slanted line side by side. One recommendation would be an all white background with the M stripes going across the bottom corner.

Basically what I'm trying to say is most people won't think M when they see the case but I really like your creativity.

Thanks!!

Yea.. i played around with the idea of having the standard M stripes going across... but i wanted something more subtile.. i didnt want to outright blast the M or BMW logo directly ... i was trying to go for the look where only a true M owner/enthusiast would appreciate it and others would just say cool case... =)

You might not be able to yet, but at least you can still use your Android phone with the M. That's something that can't be said for the new Apple product.

The white one looks cool but I don't think it has anything to do with M, the black one at least has the logo.

How about an LTW flag on there instead with a M logo at the bottom?
