For our tagged post, we nominated the post of DreamCATchers. DreamCATchers is a non-profit organization that rescues homeless cats and puts them up for adoption. In Ghent, DreamCATchers has a cozy café where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in company of the cats. Has a cat stolen your heart? Then go ahead and adopt the kitten!

Inspiring post

The inspirational merch-related post we want to share with you this month is about a statement that went down the wrong path with many people. Infectiologist Erika Vlieghe recently called for “less whining”. She does not deny that the corona measures are very hard for everyone, but complaining about them doesn’t help, according to her. Anyway, merch can really make people laugh, can’t it? Discover the post by clicking on the link below!

Guess the brand.

Ready for some play time? Every month we play our favorite game: guess the brand. This time we made a design for one of the largest software companies worldwide. This business has a broad target audience. They target men and women from 16 years old and older. That means it was a big challenge for us to create a design that’s hip enough for millennials while still classy enough for baby boomers.
