When I had my iPhone 4 one of my favorite cases was Cygnett’s ICON Hootsville case designed by Nathan Jurevicius. I LOVED the design! Plus, it didn’t scratch easily, it was super thin, and it felt soft to the touch. When I got the iPhone 5 a few months ago, I was so sad because I didn’t see a similar ICON case. A few weeks ago when I found out they had new designs for the iPhone 5 I was SO excited! I love the new Nathan Jurevicius owl design (Haven) and the TATS CRU case is awesome! I have had so many people ask about it and it’s nice to be able to tell them a story instead of saying “It’s just a cool design.” TATS CRU is an amazing artist and the Bronx design is a great representation of his work. Cygnett has impressed me once again with it’s high-quality, affordable cases. I can’t wait to see what artists they will feature next in their ICON series. I would recommend these cases to everyone with an iPhone or iPod 5th gen.
The Cygnett ICON cases can be purchased on the Cygnett website and several other retail stores. The iPhone 5 ICON cases retail for $29.99.
