This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

She worked with stylist Marie-Yan Morvan to conceive and create specific cones and backdrops for each of the dogs in this series. There were a lot of challenges in putting abstract cones on dogs. I would come up with an inspiration image or object (for example, a sea urchin), and then I would brainstorm with Marie-Yan how we could execute this. We had to make sure the cones were not too heavy and that they would be easy to take on and off. Safety was always our top concern, so above all we had to make sure what we were creating would be safe for each dog (non-toxic, not made of a food they are allergic to, etc.)
We knew that dogs would not like weird noises, so we had to be conscious of using quiet materials. As with any dog project, the scale of the dogs was always something to consider, and we often made multiple cones for each dog to make sure the sizing, shape or overall concept would work. After many shoots and many wonderful dog models, I am really happy and so proud of the series we have to share with you!
