Design an iPhone Case - Win a Wacom Inkling!

This challenge closed over 6 years ago.

The Challenge

Wacom very recently made a device called the Inkling. This device is so absurdly cool and fundamentally space age that you have to slap yourself to make sure you’re not Buck Rogers.

Even more absurdly cool is that we have 4 to give away! All you have to do is reminisce about the days when telephones were less mobile and always had a pencil and pad next to them for you to doodle on. Bizarre characters and beautiful abstract shapes appeared as if by magic while you listened to your mother’s requests for you to wear clean underclothes.

Grab your pens and pencils, and start sketching some free hand madness. You can vector it, color it, or just use the simplicity of graphite. Make it look splendid on an iPhone case and enter it right here on this very page for a chance to win the pencil of the future.
