Griffin Technology Inc., the creative leader in peripherals for iPod, iPhone, Mac and PC, today announced a partnership with community-centric online apparel store Threadless. The Griffin+Threadless Co-Op Initiative combines clever original art and case design to produce a line of accessories.
Threadless's online community is a unique and wildly successful phenomenon in which the customers, themselves, are the designers. As a result, Threadless offers some of the most creative and entertaining statements in modern apparel.
"The collaboration with Griffin is fantastic because it places a spotlight on the amazing talent within the Threadless community," said Jake Nickell, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of skinnyCorp, LLC, parent company of Threadless. "Props to Griffin for going to great lengths to make sure the artists get exposure for their work. Plus, it'll be an awesome feeling for each artist to see their design on the back of someone's iPhone!"
The first offering from the partnership is a completely new case for iPhone: distinctive Griffin industrial design wrapped in a selection of favorite original Threadless images. The single-piece polycarbonate shell snaps on to provide protection from scratches, dust and boringness. The slim case adds less than 1mm of thickness, and will be initially available in a choice of two original designs from the Threadless community: Clouds within the Thunder and Birds of a Feather.
Like the shirt designs they share, each pattern is a limited run, and they won't last long. There's no need to worry, however, as more Griffin+Threadless cases are on their way. This is only the beginning.
The new Griffin+Threadless Cases for iPhone are inspired and designed by creative people, for creative people everywhere.
Pricing and Availability Clouds within the Thunder and Birds of a Feather cases for iPhone, $34.99, are available now at Apple Retail Stores and www.griffintechnology.com. To learn more about the t-shirt designs behind these cases, visit www.threadless.com/griffin.
