For all you feline friendly females out there, this is the purrrrrfect bag! This cute cat creation was designed by the talented designer and illustrator Nathalie Moore. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to find out more!
Nathalie’s studio is based in Bournemouth, where she designs a variety of products. One of Nathalie’s most popular products are her cat zines, especially her ‘Cat State of Mind’ zine which contains a selection of her cat illustrations.
Cats are a recurring theme in Nathalie’s work and as a cat lover, this makes me happy! Her adorable ‘Natcats’ are miniature cats, made from polymer clay, baked, painted and then varnished. Nathalie also makes bespoke Natcats that are 3D portraits of customer’s pets, how sweet is that?!
Nathalie’s style is cute, colourful and quirky. She tries to stay away from creating things that are too digital, as she feels that they lose their personality.
“I enjoy making things that make me happy, that are a little bit different and will put a smile on someone’s face…I always try to create variation with my designs and illustrations and use both digital and more traditional processes and techniques as well as creating three dimensional work. I often find working with the hands and making things is therapeutic and encourages creativity.’
