Fresh Fingerprints Turned Into Cute Adventures

Austrian graphic artist and illustrator Ingrid Aspck has created a fun solution for those annoying fingerprints that boldly make their presence known on all of the smartphones, iPads, and digital devices out there. Instead of constantly trying to wipe away the smudges to get a shiny screen, Aspck embraces fingerprints and patterns them into adorable little stories. She says, "In spite of being annoyed by them, I find them quite charming as they give this fancy technical device a human touch (no wordplay intended…)."

An orchestra conductor and an audience, a rock star and crowds of fellow music-lovers, and a superhero saving the day are just three of the adventures she’s created. Aspck personifies these little prints to create fresh, unique ways of appreciating the small downsides to modern technology! To fit the concept, the designs are appropriately available as iPhone and laptop cases.
