The curated case collection features limited edition designs of Griffin’s favorite artists

Nashville, TN – February 5, 2013 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, curates a collection of iPhone cases coined the ‘Designer Series’ emblazoned with designs from new and emerging artists and printed locally at Griffin’s headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Unlike traditional crowdsourcing projects, selections for the Designer Series are curated by our internal team,” said Brian Bellinger, Project Manager, B2B & Custom Products at Griffin. “The designs you’ll find are a little off the beaten path, and that is the driving intent behind selecting these artists that we admire.”

Griffin’s Designer Series covers an eclectic gamut, ranging from organic illustration to clean graphic design and even tattoo artwork. Currently featured artists on Griffin’s website include Andrew Vastagh, Bill Caywood, BJ Barbee, Black 13 Tattoo Parlor, Danny McClain, Derrick Castle, Elizabeth Foster, Josh Shearon, JT Daly, Michael Sprouse, Patrick Weber and Rachel Karr. Cases from each artist are printed locally in small, limited batches, helping to keep the selection fresh and exciting.

Griffin Designer Series artists earn a set amount for each case sold bearing their artwork, so customers can feel good knowing their purchase supports independent artists. If a design or series of designs proves to be popular with customers, it may be selected for larger-scale distribution through retail partners.
