Retro Apple Accessories

Ever notice that so many accessories for your laptop and iPhone are inspired by those things we used to love 20 years ago? Mixtapes, Legos, Game Boys, and the rainbow Apple logo are considered vintage now and popping up as decals and covers. (And even things not so long past: Check out this fake flip phone decal for your iPhone). Funny how we dress up our brand-new technology with decades-old accessories.

Here are some that we like:

Above: Mix Tape iPhone Case. Below: Lego MacBook Sticker.


Above: Vintage Radio iPhone Sticker. Below: Apple Vintage Logo MacBook Decal.

Below: GameBoy Style iPhone Case.


Speaking of the logos, here is an article called 20 Corporate Brand Logo Evolution from instantShift. Did you know that Canon was once called ‘Kwanon’ after a Buddhist Goddess? Their logo was a picture of the goddess with 1000 flames and arms. Whoa.

Winner of the Polaroid ShakeItPhoto Contest

Congrats to Johannes Boventer on winning our first Polaroid ShakeItPhoto “Reminiscent” contest with his photo ‘Old School’. Very clean and simple and reminiscent of a time long before iPhone photography. Thanks for entering, Johannes!

We also loved Andy Weak‘s photo ‘Afraid of Heights’ and gave it an Honorable Mention. There is something kind of quiet and retro about it that we liked.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest! We hope that you’re enjoying the new Polaroid border! Be sure to check out the Banana Camera Company Facebook page. We’ll be posting more info on there about news, updates, and contests with both ShakeItPhoto and CrossProcess.
