Meet the Designers

Corina and Alex / Bucharest

Hi, we are Corina and Alex, graphic/product designers/illustrators from Bucharest. The concept of our design is to follow your beliefs while remaining unique and fresh. Some people believe in luck and others believe in making their own luck. And this is great, as this lucky cats bring us all the luck we need, plus one extra lucky cat that reminds us to work hard while staying positive and do things our way. As with the target audience, we are in luck. In this day and age, cats = instant love :)
