What is 12Pixels? 12Pixels is an interface, mobile phone application, and web service that allows people to draw and share images using only the keys of a standard mobile phone. In Sony Style release the images drawn by the users can be saved on the mobile phone, used as a wall papers, converted into custom emoticons and even sent to partner company to be made into crystal stone fashion accessories. Sony Style is not allowed to write it, but it uses Swarovski lime stones.

This release also includes some of the the sample content drawn with 12Pixels application  by one of my favorite design collective Dai Nippon Type.
