Speck is obsessed with designing cases that are just as smart and indispensable as the gadgets they protect. Founded in 2001 by a group of design engineers, and located in the heart of Silicon Valley, we are captivated by technology, fanatical about our gadgets, and consumed with making products people love. Our focus on what people care about inspires us to craft cases that are a perfect fit. We make cases that don ’t just protect smartphones, MacBooks, ereaders and tablets – they also enhance them, with clever details that spark delight in our customers.
