About Zero Gravity
Zero Gravity began in 2010 with the goal to create unique products for consumers who sought something other than mainstream. In 2012, CEO Shawn Button decided to use his existing manufacturing experience and transitioned to making one of a kind iphone cases that were protective and expressed individuality!
When designing product, Shawn and Zero Gravity draw inspiration from Downtown LA, and focus on providing a product with design that has never been seen on a phone case before--something exciting and refreshing. To Shawn and his team, phone cases are a surface to display art, using textiles such as embroidery to do so to give their phones an elevated sense of craftsmanship and artistry. Zero Gravity assembles all of their phone cases in a warehouse in DTLA.
Los Angeles has always been a hub of creativity for Zero Gravity. Downtown LA is an especially inspired backdrop for Shawn with the ever-changing faces and opportunities it presents. In LA, there is an appreciation for individuality and Zero Gravity has always celebrated that notion through design. Shawn says, “there is really a movement right now in the Los Angeles creative community for art in a very raw form.”
