hi
i have to get some pictures of a "design classic" for a project at CSM/uni and i think that last year or the year before the iPod won the gold award for product design at the annual D & AD awards. For those who don't know these are some of the most prestigious awards in the design field.

So what i am asking of all you iPod owners is, could you send me some pics of your iPods?
I would like all generations if possible (including the mini) and as large as you can make them. some from a 4 mega pixel camera would be awesome! basically i need some good shots of the iPod for both print work and a flash animation i have to make. If you can't post them because of file size imitations then feel free to email them to me. i will gladly except any pictures no matter how big or small.

I hope you can help me out
Cheers!

Apple has some high-res pics of the iPod and all their other products on their PR site... here is the iPod page:
http://www.apple.com/pr/products/ipod/ipod.html#

you should make sure you have permission to use them though... it appears to be intended for Press use only.

I don't have any good pics of my own, so I hope thats what you're looking for...

I'm not sure whether you want designed with form and function in mind or just having that eternally lasting 'x-factor'.

I have no design background but I'd say:

and Original Beetle.

I'll edit this as I think of more.

Edit 1: Found this on google, good to see they back me up.
