Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

We make touchscreen device accessories, most notably SwypeGloves which are compatible with most common touchscreen devices like iPhones, iPods, Blackberrys, iPads, etc.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are looking for a distinctive glove design that would be simple, classic yet desirable. We can make gloves in both knits and leather which are compatible with most common touchscreen devices. We will take care of the technology incorporation into the glove. We need you to design the LOOK and feel of the glove of the future. Our tagline is 'Magic in your fingertips'.

This is a more complicated demand than just a simple T-Shirt logo. We are laying down the MOTHER of all design challenges. We invite all designers to this contest to exercise your ultimate creativity. These gloves should become the quintessential cold weather companion to your iPhones/HTCs/etc. No one should have to wear a non-conductive glove and we want your design to replace the daily glove without compromising on style. They should appeal to a broad range of people, not just techno-friendly folks.

We want the gloves to be understated but at the same time they should be distinctive. The technology should blend in and not stand out (meaning we do not necessarily want to emphasize the conductive glove tips, unless they look really cool). At the same time, all designs will be considered as we do not want to stifle any creative talent.

Extra credit to any designers that send us both knits and leather designs side by side, but this is not essential. The designs do not need to match, but the look should be transferable.

Leather gloves should incorporate conductive thread in a simplistic distinctive design on the fingertips (emphasizing brand values).
