This creative collaboration between Alfie Deyes and A Good Company has been in the works for some time. It is the result of Alfie's creative ideas, his take on how to constantly remind yourself that 'Life's Good' and, in turn, Agood's circular mobile cases made from the byproduct of organically grown Swedish linseed.
"Im so happy we’ve managed to create a phone case together that’ll not only be a constant reminder that ‘Life’s Good’ every time someone sees it, but it also reminds people to do multiple different actions that’ll result in them creating a better life for themselves. For example calling their friends & family to check in on them, spending time in nature and staying hydrated." - Alfie Deyes
Stay hydrated, positive and look up!
With the happy and congenial little messaging in this playful print, Alfie sends his favourite reminder to people to call their friends and family to check in and stay connected. With this 'stop and smell the roses'-encouraging pattern at the back of your phone, you'll be sure to stay positive and enjoy life!
The process behind the design included Alfie and Lotty (his designer) on a Zoom call, drawing up many different little illustrations and phrases based around the idea of bringing positivity into someones everyday life. Some of which eventually made their way onto the ‘Life's Good’ case.
Light, strong and styled by nature
When creating the circular cases in the first place, our design team obsessed over every detail for over a year to ensure full protection without compromising on aesthetics and usability. The slim, hardcover design offers full protection whilst remaining pocket and hand-friendly. The natural material feels great in your hand and is slightly textured for improved grip.
- 1.2mm optimum thickness for protection without increasing bulkiness
- Raised edge protects the screen
- Cut-outs around the buttons for accessibility and ease of use
When it comes to patterns and colours, where else to look but nature? We also collaborated with some artist friends and enlisted the help of our global community, so you can find the perfect look to match your style.
From farm to case
The mobile case’s journey from farm to case is the result of a wonderful partnership between four local businesses. First our favourite farmer Arvid grows the linseed plants on his organic farm and gives the surplus to a small factory a short distance away who turn it into pellets.
They then make a short trip to another factory where the pellets are moulded into cases. Then they’re ready to receive their beautiful prints from a local paint shop who applies each pattern with digital printing. We make it sound easy, but it took more than a year and a lot of late nights to perfect.
Out with plastic, in with circularity
The era of plastic must come to an end. Likewise the era of single-use.
We tackle both these issues with one mobile case. Made in Sweden using the byproduct of organic linseed, our A Good Mobile Cases are 100% made from plants. On the journey to your doorstep, its only travel companion is the stone paper packaging we ship it in, no plastic in sight.
And when you’ve finished using your case simply compost in the garden or, even better, return to us and we’ll recycle it into a new one via our A Good Loop system. When you’re finished with that one, return it to us and we’ll recycle it into a new one. When you’re finished with that one... you get the idea. Welcome to a circular world.
