Building on past Kickstarter campaigns, designed by many is creating BANDED ultra-premium housings for Apple Watch and a Simple Station charging solution for iPhone and Apple Watch

MIAMI, March 19, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  The best thing to happen to the Apple Watch is being revealed before the smartwatch even hits the market! Following its successful history of going directly to consumers, designed by many will launch a crowdfunded campaign for a line of ultra-premium housings for the wearable tech as well as a desktop charging solution that docks both the iPhone and Apple Watch side-by-side. The South Florida product design company is aiming to make the Apple Watch more fashion forward at an affordable price point by mimicking the external look and feel of a traditional watch with its BANDED housings. designed by many's Simple Station will be the first attractive cord management solution that allows users to charge both Apple products in a sleek, minimalistic design.

"Our design ethos is 'simple, minimal and functional,' and we made sure that carried over to these projects," said designed by many CEO & Founder Lester Mapp. "Our Simple Station and BANDED watch housings are an affordable, yet sexy solution for not only the fashion forward but also the everyday consumer. With the support of the crowdfunding community, we look forward to getting BANDED and Simple Station in the hands of consumers in the not too distant future."

BANDED Apple Watch Housings
With technology products going mainstream in the past few years, one of the most vocal critiques of the Apple Watch isn't from the tech crowd but the fashion minded consumers who are unable to afford the $10,000 price tag of the Apple Watch: Watch Edition but still want a stylish watch. While the functionality of the other Apple Watch versions fulfills their needs in terms of technology, they leave a lot to be desired style wise. Enter the new ultra-premium BANDED housing that looks to solve all of the early critiques of the Apple Watch by replicating the look and feel of a traditional watch while also offering a layer of protection for the smartwatch.

The BANDED Classic features genuine leather & aerospace aluminum that mimics the look of a traditional, high-end watch. designed by many has plans on unveiling two additional versions of the BANDED housings, one that is waterproof and another that is shock- and dustproof.

BANDED ensures the Apple Watch works as intended, with full access to all watch features, including recharging, heart-rate monitor, digital crown and button.

Simple Station
As the Apple Watch is only fully functional when paired with an iPhone, designed by many created Simple Station for docking both devices next to each other for easy charging. Simply put, Simple Station is the best looking docking solution for both iPhone and Apple Watches. Simple Station is made from a solid block of aerospace aluminum, will be available in matte black and silver and features a small footprint so that it can fit in anywhere it's placed, including the office, man-cave or bedroom. Simple Station works with iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5 and 5S.

In addition to being an eloquently designed cord management system, Simple Station features a sound amplifying feature, allowing audiophiles to listen to "room filling" music on their docked iPhone without the need for external speakers.

designed by many has already seen huge success from crowdfunding websites with its two campaigns for its AL13 iPhone cases. The prior campaigns not only met but also far exceeded the initial goals. For the new campaign, designed by many has increased its customer service staffing and is working with a manufacturer that can quickly fulfill orders on its behalf.

Pricing & Timing
designed by many will launch its Kickstarter campaign for both products and provide additional details, including functionality and pricing, in late-April. To sign-up for information on when the Kickstarter campaign launches, please visit
