Dom Streater wins Project Runway OtterBox Challenge

Fashion designer Dom Streater, best known by fans as Project Runway’s 12th season winner, is the winner of the OtterBox Smartphone Case Design Challenge.

Verizon partnered with Otterbox to host the challenge helping to further remove style barriers from tech by teaming up with Project Runway: All Stars and OtterBox to design the most-fashionable smartphone cases. Below I have included information about the design and the challenge.

Winning Design

OtterBox is producing not just one, but two separate Symmetry Series cases featuring her designs, which are sold exclusively by Verizon. Streater’s two winning case designs each boast its own sense of style. The first case features a sophisticated Pink Swirl design with a black and white geometric pattern highlighted by bold pink floral accents. The second case has a Green Diamond design with a black and white diamond-patterned background and green botanical accents. The attractive cases are now available both online and in Verizon stores for iPhone 6s ($39.99), iPhone 6s Plus ($49.99), and Samsung Galaxy S7 ($39.99).

The Challenge

For the OtterBox Challenge, the all-star designers were tasked with creating an original print that could both walk down a runway and be used on a smartphone case, with the winning design to be featured on a Symmetry Series smartphone case. For the print-on-print challenge, each designer was tasked with creating their own print. After print creation, they each received $200 to purchase a second print. All designs were to feature their original design plus the design they purchased. However, Streater decided to take it to the next level by creating both designs to provide the print-on-print effect, versus purchasing a design as the second print.

Case Loyalty Program 

With the OtterBox Smartphone Case Design Challenge phone cases, the days of being tied to one phone case are over. Verizon’s Case Loyalty Program lets you purchase one of the design colors and receive a 25% off code for the next case you buy. Redeem the 25% off code and receive a 30% off code for the next case. Stay stylish, and have a case for every occasion. The more cases, the more savings.

Dr Dalton Dog Treats

Dr. Dalton’s Premium Dog Treats (www.drdaltons.com) are made from the high-quality, low-fat meat that dogs love. Good meat, loaded with healthy protein, is an essential part of your dog’s nutrition regimen; many dogs that suffer from overweight, itchy, flaky skin, coarse and brittle coats or low energy are lacking meat in their diet.

 

When you offer your pet Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats, you can feel good knowing that they are made from that one health-essential ingredient for canines: high-quality natural beef, chicken, or pork.  They contain no additives such as sugar, salt, coloring, flavoring, sweeteners, gluten, grain, chemicals or preservatives. Produced entirely in the U.S., under strict manufacturing standards, Dr. Dalton’s Premium Treats have the crunch that dogs enjoy and are sized perfectly for a between-meal or training snack.

Dr. Susan Dalton, founder and creator of Dr. Dalton’s Premium treats, has spent years saving and retraining aggressive, frightened and traumatized dogs using positive reinforcement methods. When she couldn’t find the high-quality treats she needed for working with her dogs, she decided to make them. Now all dogs can benefit from this quality snack.

Ever since Jacob’s kidney injury back in January, I have been extra careful with what he gets. He loves the Meat Medley treats and I know the are great for him because they contain only high quality proteins and no weird additives!

About Dr. Susan Dalton and Dr. Daltons Premium Treats

Dr. Susan Dalton grew up surrounded by animals of all kinds – dogs, cats, chickens, snakes, and even salt water fish. After receiving her Ph.D., she worked with troubled adolescents, and served as both a university professor, and researcher. 

Dr. Dalton began training dogs after adopting Cassie, a 10-week old Border Collie who had been rescued from under a car. Cassie was traumatized; fearful and aggressive. When Dr. Dalton consulted various ‘experts’ on how to best rehabilitate Cassie, all of the trainers she spoke with labeled the pup unworkable – a hopeless case.

Susan began reading everything she could about dog training, and personally developed a highly effective dog training program based on positive reinforcement. Using this philosophy, she founded the California School for Dogs Inc. in 2009. Since then, Dr. Dalton has trained hundreds of dogs – specializing in frightened, aggressive and traumatized animals.

With healthy treats a cornerstone of her training program, Dr. Dalton wasn’t satisfied with the dog treat options available to her. She started making her own treats in 2012, using clean and simple ingredients like chicken, beef and pork. It was her clients who convinced her to make her treats available for purchase. Since then, Dr. Dalton has mastered the creation of a dog treat that is both healthy and doggy-delicious.

All of Dr. Dalton’s Premium Pet treats are sourced, produced, and packaged in the USA They can be purchased at www.DrDaltons.com and come in three flavors – Simply Beef, Simply Chicken and Meat Medley (made from beef, chicken and pork).
