These Dogs & Cats Popping Up in Designer Projects Are Everything

These Cute Dogs Popping Up in Designers’ Daily Moments are Everything


They say a dog is a man’s best friend. A dog is everyone’s best friend, especially a designer’s best friend. Not only do the company of our cute pups make our day-to-day that much more enjoyable, dogs are a great prop for adding life to your portfolio. We’ve scoured designer feeds and put together a collection of furry friends making their adorable cameos, featured everywhere from styled photoshoots to the office desk.
