I recall seeing an interview with Penn Gillette one time during which they happened to show his laptop, which was covered with stickers. All sorts of stickers. It was garish, but yet it fascinated me in a way because it was so individual in appearance. While I usually just use a clear, protective skin on my devices (’cause I’m just boring that way), I appreciate decorative skins that allow the owner to really show off their personality and distinguish their gadget from all of the others around them. SmirkAbout, an Australian company, is one of the newer companies putting out interesting designs. Their skins, which are non-adhesive, are available for over 500 devices, including some of the most popular, such as the iPhone, iPad, Nook, and Kindle.
SmirkAbout skins cover both the front and back of a device, featuring a matte finish for a better grip. The skins are designed to be easy to install and remove, provide UV protection, and have a lifetime guarantee. One of the things that I thought was really cool is that SmirkAbout also offers downloadable, matching wallpaper, so your device has a cohesive look to it. You can check out their designs and offerings here.
