John Woodland and Jon Lucca founded Twig Case Company in October, 2011.
Woodland’s background in guitar construction and design has yielded him two patents and accolades from happy customers. The idea for an iPhone case came while designing a custom, 100% FSC® Certified guitar model for musician Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, at the same time the iPhone 4s was introduced.
After purchasing several wood and bamboo iPhone cases it was clear to him it could be done better. How? With the unique, ebony-like, FSC® Certified paper composite Woodland used on Tweedy’s guitar fingerboard and bridge. After teaming up with childhood-friend and designer Jon Lucca, Twig Case Co. was born and Tweedy actually became Twig’s first customer. We’ve even framed the dollar.
John Woodland lives in Minneapolis with his two kids, occasionally designing guitars and their parts with their help.
Jon Lucca lives in Waseca, Minnesota with his wife and dogs. When he is not making something out of recycled materials, he runs the Waseca Animal Rescue with his wife and others, plays in a band, and attempts to maintain an organic garden.
