I am ALWAYS, and I mean always talking about branding, branding, branding!! If you want people to know who you are, you need to make a name for yourself. And part of this is being recognized in everything that you do.

I headed off to Blogher 2011 with my branding in tact. I had t-shirts, a new cell phone case, a custom journal, some new business cards, and more! I am always branded! Although, I still need to rebrand a few items since I changed my avatar recently. But, most things are done. There were a few awesome companies that helped me out. The first of them was Uncommon. I have always been a fan of cheap cell phone cases. Cheap meaning reasonable, not cheaply made! ­čÖé

The Uncommon Deflector Case for iPhone 4


I LOVE this case. I have gotten so many compliments while out roaming. I do believe this is one of the best quality GOOD LOOKING cases that I have ever owned. Well, of course it is good looking because it has my branding on it. ­čśë But it would be good looking even withough that. The case is very sturdy, and fits the phone perfectly. I chose this option over the Capsule case because I like that the screen is fully exposed. Sometimes cases that hug the screen hinder the function when scrolling, or using touch close to the edge.

I chose to design my own case, but you can also use the online tool to customize a case by selecting artwork from the gallery. It took me a few tries to get the size just right, but there are great tools for helping you out.

Unlike some other cases that I have tried, the image on this one is solid. Uncommon uses a special tattoo technique called 3D TATT to not only wrap the image around the whole case seamlessly, but it also embeds the image deep into the case. They promise no fading or chipping. That is awesome.

The Deflector case is sturdy too. I have dropped my phone more than once with this case on and the phone has been just fine. The inside cradles the phone and seems to leave just a tad of space between the 2 for a cushion of air.

I am very happy with this case and would recommend it. The only con so far is that once it is on, it is kind of hard to take off. However, I don’t really consider this a con! This means if you drop it, the case should stay put. ­čÖé

The Uncommon Deflector Case is available from Uncommon.com for $34.95.


Disclosure: I was provided this case free of charge in exchange for this review.
