Simple TV Remote Case - Freelancer for Drafting CAD Drawings

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
I am looking for someone to design a case for a very simple TV remote. I need someone who can take a design from concept to finished manufacturing drawings. I will provide basic dimensions and design concept, but need someone to advise and draft it into reality.
The remote will be rectangular, 6 inches wide, 9 inches long, and one inch deep. The design must incorporate all switches, replaceable battery compartment, LEDs, etc.
Don't Wants:
I do not want a traditional remote design. This remote is an assistive device for disabled persons.
  1. AutoCAD
Additional Information
The remote size has been reduced to 10.16 cm (4 inches) wide, by 20.32 cm (eight inches) long, by 2.54 cm (one inch) in depth. My chosen material is black plastic, textured for easy grip, and durable enough to withstand being dropped from 125 cm (4 feet one inch) without breaking or the cover opening.

The cover, which features small openings for power on/off, a small indicator light and volume up/down switches, and a large opening for access to the keys, needs a method of easy to open and close. The preference would be a fixed hinge on one side, and some type of durable and secure fastener/clips on the opposite side to release the cover for opening. The cover is required to open because behind it, and over the actual keypad, will be a paper legend to identify what each key is for, which in turn is covered by a flexible piece of clear plastic to protect the legend, yet still allow key depression.

The battery compartment should be designed so that opening it and inserting or removing batteries is straightforward, within the constraints of making it safe for small children and the elderly. If the battery compartment lid comes off completely, it may be easily dropped and lost, so a hinged design may be better. The batteries will be double 'A' in size, and two in quantity.

The buttons that will be needed are for power on and off, volume up and down, to 'learn' and to 'set' (see diagrams)

An adequate amount of information is extremely important for running a successful design contest on CAD Crowd.

Please include notes on chosen material (plastics/metal/etc.), design aesthetics, colors, type of battery, hand drawn sketches (if available), button size, which buttons must be included (on/off, numbers, etc.), links/pictures of competitor products (for reference) and any other information that will allow designers to be successful with your project.

This Contest is for a hip and totally cool "Pocket Lock It". This product will need to be trendy and something that every teenager and young adult will love! It seems that with the electronic craze everyone loves to put their cellphones in their back pockets.

I actually had a set of keys fall into the toilet and then the toilet automatically flushed leaving me with no keys! This product is specifically designed to be able to keep phones and other small items from falling out of your pocket when pulling your pants up or down. I want it to be very stylish and trendy. I'm open to shapes and all design features outside of the information that I will present to you. Specifications: Think the back pocket of your jeans in terms of size. Then it should be easily accessible to put the phone in and out. There could possibly be a chain or something that could be attached to the belt loops. Or it could be something that attaches to the crevice of the jean pocket to keep the Pocket Lock attached firmly to the pants. The material should be something that clings to fabric. It should feature an opening that will not allow the phone or keys to fall out
