Big Yellow Dog Designs was an idea that had been floating around in my head since I graduated from college in 2008 with a degree in Graphic Design. With design jobs being sparse, I wanted a creative outlet when I got home from my desk job. The idea brewed in my head for quite a while, and with much encouragement (and a brand new button maker!) from my wonderful husband, Big Yellow Dog Designs was born in 2011. I decided to namet he shop after our big, goofy, loveable golden retriever, Fender, who is always on hand to help with important design decisions. I hope you like what you see, and I look forward to your orders!
