It’s April, and we’ve officially entered the season of bunnies! Any parent knows that there is no lack of sickly-sweet bunny designs all over kid’s stuff – especially during this time of year – but design-duo Kozyndan takes a slightly more sophisticated approach to everyone’s favorite fuzzy lagomorphs. Spinning swirls of tiny bunnies into familiar, traditional Japanese-style illustrations, Kozyndan have managed to take a springtime cliche and give it fresh, new life. We particularly love how this Bunny Blossom poster (shown above) evocatively combines the Japanese spring iconography of cherry blossoms with the traditional European spring symbol of the rabbit.
Kozyndan (literally Kozy and Dan) make bunny posters for all seasons: winter, fall, spring and summer, as well as doing a great bunny version of the most famous traditional Japanese illustration of all time: the Great Wave.
We don’t know what’s up with this illustration duo, but they seem to have a penchant for bunnies. Bunnies pepper almost all of their artwork, from their stuffed Bunnyfish toys to all of their beautiful Asian-style bunny posters. For obvious reasons, we are digging their Bunny Blossom poster right now, but all of Kozyndan’s posters are beautiful and brilliant. Kids will love finding the tiny rabbits hidden in each poster, while adults will appreciate the grown-up aesthetic and clever symbolism of these beautiful posters. Take that Peter Rabbit!
