Our very own Lisa and her dear friend Holly got to go to the Kentucky Derby this year, and we’re a little jealous. Not only did they get to witness the “greatest two minutes in sports,” but they got to take our new custom-designed, officially licensed Kentucky Derby products along for the road trip.

We had so much fun living through them as we followed their #catstudioroadtrip on Instagram. We think they both looked fabulous in their extravagant hats (and we think the mint juleps look extra tasty in those catstudio glasses.

We are so excited about the opportunity to create this custom design for the Kentucky Derby. The products are available to purchase at local retailers + our website and are in limited supply. Whether you were able to celebrate in the stands at Louisville, or were watching it at home in Texas, we hope you had a wonderful Derby Weekend. Happy Trails!

If you follow us on Instagram, you may have spotted our exclusive (and rather lusted after) Masters pillow. We had so much fun working with the Masters to create this custom design celebrating the tradition of the tournament, as well as the supreme beauty of Augusta National

The design was featured on embroidered pillows, glasses, dish towels, and ready-to-frame posters. We got a lot of requests to buy the products, but they were only available in Augusta the week of the tournament.Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 9.34.14 AM

In fact, they were so wildly popular, however, they sold out quickly at the tournament too (see article below taken from the Augusta Chronicle). We were humbled by this amazing response and can’t wait to work with the Masters again in the future.

Have you heard of a movie called Star Wars? An amazing visionary named George Lucas? Or news of the purchase of Lucasfilm by Disney? Of course you have. Did you know that Mr. Lucas is also a really great gift-giver?

We are excited to share that catstudio was selected by Lucasfilm for a “Top Secret Project”- creating a custom pillow highlighting the “World of Lucasfilm.” Our pillow was given to each employee as their Christmas gift along with an iPad and iPhone.

Many articles highlighted the “Best Employee Christmas Gift”, with one article from Business Insider commenting, “You can get those Apple gadgets anywhere, but that pillow is priceless.”

Through catstudio, Lucasfilm was able to eternalize and celebrate themselves as such an innovative and creative company. What an amazing honor – That’s a gift in itself!
