Yoga Mamas has partnered with Ally Tripkovic, creator of Sunny Rhino Designs, to design a set of Baby Milestones Cards exclusively for Yoga Mamas. Baby Milestone Cards are the perfect way to mark your newborn baby's growth with photos you will have forever. The 16 card pack starts on the very first day, marking the first four weeks and then month after month until your newborn turns 1! To learn more about these beautiful prints, we sat down with Ally to discuss the inspiration and upcoming direction of Sunny Rhino Designs.
What is the inspiration behind Sunny Rhino Designs?
Ally: Sunny Rhino Designs first came to be when I went looking for a modern family tree for my kids. I love celebrating family and I wanted to teach my kids about past generations. So as a graphic designer, when I couldn’t find a fresh and modern design – I just created it. From that point, I was inspired to keep creating more pieces and there was a natural progression to design prints and baby milestone cards. Sunny Rhino Designs is my dream job.
How do you hope your customers will feel when they purchase one of your prints?
Ally: You know that feeling when you’ve purchased something for your home and you can’t wait to put it in its place? THAT feeling! It honestly makes my day when clients tell me that their kids love their new art – it’s incredibly sweet to hear.
When collaborating with Yoga Mamas to create the beautiful Milestones Cards, how did you fuse your vision with the YM brand?
Ally: Working with Yoga Mamas was such a fun collaboration! My design style is normally bold and graphic, so I had to really soften my approach and focus on the calmer/lighter aesthetic of the YM brand. I think the results are lovely - it's a perfect balance of sweet and modern, so fitting for the YM space.
What's next for Sunny Rhino Designs?
Ally: I'm currently working on a fun new product with a Toronto based children’s retailer. We are still in the early stages so I can’t share the details just yet – I’m looking forward to the big reveal soon.
I know at some point I would love to do more textile and surface design – it’s always been a passion of mine.
This is just the beginning for Sunny Rhino…fun things to come!
