Our Story

Chima Designs began with a simple concept – to create innovative designs and quality products that unleash new possibilities for how people interact with technology.

From his sales position in the Mac Store, 24-year-old Seattle native Udoka Chima is in tune with how customers use their Apple products. Leading up to the release of the iPad, Chima began to brainstorm possible uses for the iPad. He noticed that the only cases available had conventional designs and features that did not encourage new iPad functionality.

What stood out to Chima was the iPad’s ability to replace car and plane entertainment systems. Hence, the inception of The Crucial Case, a brilliant yet simple-to-use case that transforms the iPad into a mobile entertainment system.

With the little money he had, Chima invested in creating a prototype of his concept. Perfection became an obsession and 15 prototypes later, The Crucial Case took shape.

With its focus on smart design, quality materials and local manufacturing, the first product in the Chima Designs line offers customers a stylish, durable product with multiple functions.
