Apple Takes Inspiration From American Apparel With New iPod

Today Steve Jobs introduced a series of new iPods, including a redesigned nano that comes in seven bright colors (and two drab ones).

Apple's nano-chromatic new iPod

It seems Cupertino may have looked south to Los Angeles for color and branding inspiration. The iPod's "nano-chromatic" branding is eerily similar to the thermo-chromatic sign that has recently appeared at my local American Apparel. The iPod nano colors also map well to those of American Apparel's t-shirts.

American Apparel shirts in the same colors as the iPod nano. (Also, one of these is not like the others.)

If I had the money, I'd get a shirt and matching nano for every day of the week. It is the ultimate accessory.

I should note, this wouldn't be the first time Apple has taken "inspiration" from others for use in advertisements and branding.
