Just weeks after the launch of its new Waterproof Case for iPhone 5/5s, Lifedge has been given one of only nine Special Mentions from a total of 115 products entered for the DAME award, the world’s leading annual design competition for the marine equipment and accessories industry. The Special Mention was awarded by the DAME Jury who acknowledged the product’s excellent and detailed industrial design and high street standard branding and packaging. Lifedge is the creation of Tom Reed, MD of world leading marine installations company Scanstrut who expressed his pride in receiving this prestigious endorsement,"We are pleased to have won a Special Mention for our Lifedge product. This will certainly boost awareness of the range and spur us on for 2014" Born from a deep-rooted belief that the best memories are created whilst enjoying the great outdoors, the dynamic inhouse Lifedge design team has delivered a range of waterproof cases for personal electronic devices specifically designed for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
