After a production phase that lasted about 6 months, the first Star Wars USB flash drives by Tribe came available for sale a few days ago. All the characters can be purchased the official website and in the official retailers’ shops. The development phase started from the drawings below.
Using the offical styleguide as reference Jacopo Rosati designed those turnarounds paying attention on each single details both aesthetic and industrial. The most important part was to develope a shape which could circumscribe perfectly the USB connector, in order to keep the whole USB drive the smallest possible.
After the design phase, a sculptor started to realize the prototype. In a continuous feedback with the licensor every single detail was tweaked and corrected. Once the model was done it was used as a mould for the mass production.
And finally, this is how they all look, so much better than those simple boring USB sticks they sell normally, don’t you think?
