A peccadillo of kisses

by bethanybump

Since I’m told by Twitter that the world is ending tomorrow, I want to share some cuteness we can revel in on our penultimate day on Earth. Combining my love of design and animals (who doesn’t love animals?), Woop Studios created some awesome prints of groups of animals in colorful forms.

This reminds me of Darwin and, of course, Vonnegut's "Galapagos".

From “A Smack of Jellyfish,” “An Aurora of Polar Bears” to “A Romp of Otters,” Woop Studios has a nice little range of animal prints that would fascinate my younger self for days on end. I would love to purchase some of these for my future kid’s bedroom.

They remind me of a National Geographic card (or book?) collection I used to have when I was very young. I would pore over different wild animals — the cheetah, the meerkat, the blue whale — reading about their history and evolution and habitat and speed. Of course, I also used to read encyclopedias for fun so I am hedging bets that my future child would appreciate something similar, only in a far more artsy and cute form.

This one reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds".

This could easily be the title of an Agatha Christie novel.

Also, an interesting aside about this studio: Woop Studios was founded by the graphic designers for the Harry Potter franchise. Cool gig, to say the least! Miraphora Mina, Eduardo Lima, Harriet Logan, and Mark Faulkner describe their collection as a unique and exciting angle to the fascinating world of collective nouns. I’m not going to rave, but after reading about the mission of the studio I find their work very creative, educative and admirable.

I'll buy this print when I'm an old cat lady.

I can’t help but smile at all these prints. Check out the rest here.

Note: I read about Woop Studios at Design*Sponge.
