Kuro Media

Kuro, at the time the largest legal music download service in China, approached us to develop a range of hardware products to support their market entry.

The range included a cell phone, speakers, microphones, and a desktop MP3 controller that attaches to a PC – it reached working prototype stage.

The products all needed to communicate the same design language, while at the same time appearing different and distinct, and also communicate the aspirations of the client.
