9 standout kitty-inspired designs to celebrate National Adopt-a-Cat Month

June is National Adopt-A-Cat Month, which inspired us to highlight some of our favorite winning designs featuring the cuddly (yet cunning) creatures. After looking through hundreds of contests – our customers really seem to like cats – we deduced that cats send a number of branding messages, from simply being aesthetically pleasing, friendly fluff-balls to serving as symbols of a laid-back, relaxed and whimsical lifestyle. Here are 9 great designs – yep, one for each of a cat’s lives! – that run the gamut from retail logo design to app design to infographic design to illustration.
