Striking the Right Tone

Express-on covers are so last season, another way to adorn and adore our mobile phones is Artones by mobile content producers; a site of slightly more unusual ring tones and logos by artists such as Lucy Kimbell and Thompson and Craighead. Nick Crowe's axis of evil ringtones and 'jihad' in Arabic are topical. It's part of their wider scheme to subvert existing types of mobile phone content, and if you visit their other site at The-Phone-Book Limited, you can learn and build your own WAP animations. Although Artones are only available in the UK, mobile phone obsessives, of which I count myself as one, are also mostly in the UK!
