Unheard of a few years ago, 'character design' is now an everyday term in modern design vernacular. Having started out as no more than a designer's hobby, it has quickly evolved into a lucrative business.
Be it a12" vinyl character with a Mohawk, an alien dog with a bad attitude or a small plastic girl with razor blade ponytails on a key ring, these creatures encompass a wide spectrum of media.
I Love U Baby focuses not on the mass market but on works by designers with a story to tell and how they keep their ideas fresh and relevant to the times.
