Its Not Pink: New Jill-E Bags

By: Melanie Beus, Contributing Editor

Jill-E Designs is a trendsetting company that caters to women photographers first. They offer stylish bags that offer women as an alternative to the tradition camera bag with their selection of stylish, yet sturdy bags that bring style and flair to sclepping of camera gear and other electronics. Jill-E offers a line of stylish bags for the men as well, but has been a market leader in offering bags that are exclusively designed for women.

Artsy, One-of-a-Kind Bags from Collaboration with Todd Rigione of Madcamp

Jill-e designs – maker of sturdy, stylish camera / carry bags suited to today's tech-friendly, on-the-go lifestyle – is collaborating with artist-photographer Todd Rigione of Madcamp Artistic Backgrounds to adorn a selection of bags from the company's portfolio with colorful, custom-painted designs for the ultimate in fashion and gear protection. These unique bags will be available beginning later this month only via the jill-e designs web site.

jill-e designs has chosen three of its products – yellow wristlets, polka dot messenger-style day bags, and red leather camera and carry bags – for Madcamp’s artistry. Rigione, whose striking canvas backdrops have become a “must have” among today’s portrait photographers, has come up with a palette of design themes – such as floral, feline, playful and abstract – to embellish the bags. No two custom-painted bags turn out the same.

“Todd’s a fountain of creativity. His artistry and inspiration bring a special new dimension to the bags we’ve selected for this collaboration,” said Jill Wight, President of jill-e designs. “Todd’s creations demand your attention – they can be quietly engaging or quite edgy. But they’re always spectacular and anyone carrying one of these bags is sure to stand out from the crowd. That’s what people have come to expect from jill-e designs.”

“What’s great about this is that the jill-e designs bags are already fantastic. What I do isn’t needed to make them look better – it’s more like their bags and my designs hold hands and come together in a way that raises both higher than either could go alone,” Rigione said. “I love painting these bags. They challenge you; they invite you to push the boundaries. jill-e designs deserves a lot of credit for being able to see their bags in a different way – with fresh, creative eyes. A lot of people I’ve talked to recently want one of these bags.”

These unique bags are available exclusively through the jill-e designs web site. Online customers choose the bag they want, as well as one of the artistic themes. Once the selections and business transaction are complete, the chosen bag is shipped by jill-e designs to Madcamp and the custom-painted design is applied. The completed bag is then shipped to the customer, with the entire process usually taking three to four weeks. Prices are as follows: wristlets, $30; messenger-style day bags, $89.99; red leather camera bags, $199.99.
