The Final Cut

Back in July we challenged our community of artists to dream up a laptop skin that creatively revealed the glowing Apple logo in our Cut to the Core design challenge. A tsunami of press and purchases followed the launch of the first round of winners, so we decided to spoil you with a second batch of designs that also cut us to the quick.

Congrats to our round two design winners!

Greg Koenig and his glow-in-the-dark design A Little Rusty will shed light on your computer (and your affliction for lovable robots). Greg wanted to “create a piece that integrated the glowing Apple logo, to make it feel that the logo was interacting with the artwork” and what better way than to do it with light…

Ivan Flores brings new meaning to the term apple jack with Jacked In. As is the case with most great designs, Ivan says that he wanted to draw something that he himself would want to see on his laptop. “I wanted to take advantage of the Apple logo light to illuminate a cute sci-fi chic who happens to be wearing headphones plugged into the laptop as if she’s listening to iTunes.”

Mike Klay takes a decidedly cutthroat approach with the clean 45 degree angles of his crossbones in The Rebel. It kind of reminds us of Steve Job’s propensity for flying pirate flags in Apple’s days of yore.

How do you like them apples?
