The Joy of Personalising your Objects

January 20, 2016

How do you like my new phone cover? I’m absolutely in love with it. Not because it’s covered in cats (which is always great) or just because I drew those (which for me, is even better). The reason I love it is because how receiving it in the post made me feel.

For those who don’t know, I used to dabble in illustration, I even published a few pieces in a few magazines in Portugal, almost 20 years ago. I also worked as a colourist both in animation and comics and then work dried out and I was forced to get a “real job”. that doesn’t mean that I don’t miss those days and every time I visit an exhibition or a festival or something, it still makes me feel sad that I haven’t been able to pursue a career in art/illustration.


I sometimes wonder what it would be like if I could start a small business on the side, selling a few of my wares and drawings but somehow I never feel like they are good enough. It might be all in my head, because when I was offered a personalised case from Casetify and I showed the mockup around, I had some really good feedback. Now that I’ve received it in the post, it makes me love it even more, because I can really see my drawings looking good printed and it’s an incentive to actually do more of this. It might be a while, because after all, I have a full-time job and there are a lot of things that need to be handled in the meantime, but for now I will say, “watch this space”.


I have received the personalised case courtesy of Casetify, for my Samsung Galaxy S6 and it was delivered in a good quality protective box. The website interface is easy to navigate and I managed to select and apply my design very quickly and easily. The service isn’t too fast but it’s worth it, to wait for a good quality case that nobody else will have!
