Design Inspiration

Jina’s design is loosely inspired by Laika and the other dogs that were sent into space. Even though the true story is quite sad, Jina thought it might be fun to have a play around with dogs in space wearing the suit that Tim Peake wore when he visited the International Space Station in 2015-16. The galaxies celebrate the beauty found in space.
For the design, Jina engaged the local community by running a competition to feature one lucky winner’s pet portrait on the design.
