Nashville, TN — February 11, 2011 — Griffin Technology Inc., maker of innovations for everyday life, today announced their partnership with the GRAMMY Foundation®.

"Music is an integral part of our culture, both at Griffin and in our home city of Nashville," said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology. "The GRAMMY Foundation is a perfect partner for us, and we're proud to support their efforts in music and arts education."

Griffin has paired with the GRAMMY Foundation to create a collection of original artist-designed skins for iPhone and iPod touch. Featuring artwork by OK GO, Phoenix, MGMT, and Ben Folds, the extra-thick vinyl protects the back of your device from scratching.
