Calculators in Vivid Neon Colors
Calculators in Vivid Neon Colors - Expressing Individuality
Designed with Japanese Fashion Students
Based on the Concept of “The Choice is YOURS”
New MS-20UC calculators, which feature creative designs that express the diversity of contemporary values, in a limited number of xxx units. Available in two color schemes, the MS-20UC calculators boast vivid fluorescent colors for users who want to boldly assert their individuality.
Casio created the new designs in collaboration with Cultural Lab., a lab of students from Bunka Fashion College, one of Japan’s best-known fashion schools. During the development process, the students’ diverse sensibilities shaped the product — from the concept, “The Choice is YOURS” , to the design of color, font, package, and other details.
The MS-20UC calculators express the theme of “Be Bold” with their vivid neon colors. Molded out of fluorescent resin, the entire body shows off with bold coloring. Moreover, a unique new typeface with a digital feel was designed for use on the keys to match the fluorescent color schemes. Even the package uses a subtle gradation to convey the power of embracing all kinds of diversity.
Up next, Casio plans to release more new themed models designed in collaboration with Cultural Lab.
