The Pop Culture World of Pets Rock – Where Pets Meet Celebrity!
The brainchild of a London based design duo and launched in 2008, Pets Rock is a humorous take on pets and the cult of celebrity. Each character is a real pet, photographed and brought to life using a digital program where each element is illustrated – from clothing to hair -creating a unique piece of art.
Pets Rock has been picked up by celebrities and posted in their own social media – Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, Perez Hilton and Karl Largerfeld have all featured Pets Rock characters on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest Pages to fans in their millions!
There are now over 55 Pets Rock licensees, in more than 25 categories, from chocolate to homewares, apparel to tech accessories.
