5 Favorites: Bunnies for the Design-Minded

Issue 15 · Shades of Pastel · April 15, 2014

Rainbows and unicorns are things of my past, but somehow I never outgrew my affection for bunnies. Floppy ears and fluffy tails, I figured, were my own particular design Achilles heel—but then I discovered I'm far from alone. For lots of sophisticates, designers included, the love of rabbit is a life-long affair.
