ARC / Smartphone Design


ARC is a smartphone inspired and designed for female skateboarders. Its' ergonomic form mimics curves of a skateboard giving an active and sporty yet feminine look. It is topped with sapphire glass, which is unbreakable even when dropped while skateboarding.

Bikers have safety strobe light on the back of their bicycles but how about skateboarders? ARC also provides safety for its users; the LED strip on the back of the phone can be used as a safety light when the skateboarders carry it inside their back pocket.
