San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 6, 2005
On the forefront of thoughtful, innovative design, Lunar unveils their latest line of work with the SanDiskÂ® Cruzer Flash Âmicro-skins,Â the Sansa digital music player and the SDTM Plus flash memory card, ushering the brand into the lifestyle savvy market of consumer electronics.
ÂLunarÂs design philosophy and leadership is a key component of brand building,Â say Max Yoshimoto, vice president of design at Lunar. ÂSanDiskÂ® has always been well known for their leadership in technical innovation. The products we have designed for SanDiskÂ® have moved them from Âone of the numerous memory providers,Â to a brand that skillfully blends lifestyle and technology, one that people recognize and seek out.Â
Lunar DesignÂs brand-building philosophy is evident with the recent line of products designed for SanDiskÂ®. Lunar introduced color to the SanDiskÂ® Cruzer Flash Memory portable drives. The drives are packaged with Âmicro-skins,Â wearable, rubberized colored skins and cap, interchangeable for an expression of individual style. Initially, the skins will be available in clear and two colors. The two-piece covers slip on and off easily and also work on the SanDiskÂ® Cruzer MP3 Companion, an optional digital music player that has a docking part for the Micro.
The SanDiskÂ® SansaÂ e100, is a series of small, highly portable digital music players that use embedded flash memory and removable flash memory cards to store many hours of digital music. The new music players feature high-fidelity sound, a sophisticated yet easy-to-use song navigation and sorting system and a unique design that continues SanDiskÂs tradition of distinctive styling.
The SanDiskÂ® SDÂ Plus flash memory card features USB connectivity built into an SDÂ card format. LunarÂs design leverages the prevalence of both SDÂ and USB standards in todayÂs consumer electronics. The innovative SDÂ Plus flash memory card connects to both of these popular interfaces enabling consumers to easily transfer data between their portable devices and their PCÂs without needing any special card reader or adapter.
ÂOver the last 5 years, Lunar has helped SanDiskÂ® seize an immense opportunity in the flash storage market. We have created products that move beyond mere function to deliver experiences that are personal and memorable,Â stated Jeff Salazar, director of design at Lunar.
