lol.. i was going for the subtile look.. if you look clearly the colors are the ///M colors.... so to a normal person it just looks like a cool design, but to most M enthusiast, those 3 colors in combination should stand out... =)

I would have gone a little less subtle. Maybe made the same colors as a checker pattern coming off of a corner as if it were a flag, then fading to white.

Nice though!

Looks like i signed your case..... haha

I like it. I was thinking about designing my own skin at skinit.com but then just went generic for the time being.

I also am not a fan of bulky cases.

I did a casemate for my 4s, and ditched it after a few months. On the case I got (looks similar to yours), a really cheap thin black rubber condom goes over the phone and then you slip that really flimsy piece of plastic over it. The rubber is annoying because the bottom piece by the home button starts to become loose over time and gets to be very irritating.

After two months or so the background that I put on the case started peeling, and by the time I traded it in the case was completely white (peeled) around the edges. Piece of crap.

I like a few of them but I can't justify spending $40 something on a case.
