Those rumours about the release of the iPhone 5S are just getting stronger and once the new model drops I am sure we will be greeted with the usual Beatles like hysteria. And with every new phone comes a spanking new phone cover. While we await the release of Apple’s new baby, Griffin Technology have released a new collection of iPhone cases for iPhone 5 and 4/4S but with a difference. This collection is called the Designer Series and features cases that have been created by up and coming artists. The Designer Series range from an eclectic gamut, to organic illustration, clean graphic design and even tattoo artwork. The cases also have ethical attributes and a commitment to Fair Trade as they are produced by local printers in Nashville where Griffin’s headquarters are and the designers earn a set amount for each case sold bearing their artwork. If a design proves to be really popular then the designer may earn a distribution deal.
I love the idea of using emerging artists to design an accessories collection because I feel that it brings a fresh and funky vibe to what can be a saturated market. Some of the designs are really lovely with a real quirky feel. There are so many different phone cases out there that everyone is looking for that one case that stands out and makes a statement. It’s also good to know that Griffin are working on a collection for Android phones.
The Designer Series collection is exclusively available on the Griffin website
