The Speck StyleFolio Case is the flagship iPad case of Speck Design. I adapted the design of the production iPad Air case for the newly released iPad Air 2. Design efforts targeted low cost adaptations which did not require opening new tooling. The case for iPad Air 2 was released for early 2015 production.
The StyleFolio Case is the global best selling iPad case. The case was available in 9 colorway.
The design changes between the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 subtracted almost 2 full millimeters from device thickness. Tight fit is essential. Our team engaged in focused exploration on the optimal ways to adapt the existing case to meet the new iPad Air 2.
We worked with the factory to minimize cost and optimize throughput. The winning solution was to include die-cut foam strips between case and liner. This afforded a snug fit with no new tooling and minimal per-unit expenditure.
