This cover is based on the original Hobonichi smartphone app Dokonoko, which was designed for viewing and posting pictures of pets and animals. These Dokonoko icons were drawn by illustrator Ayumi Ohashi, who drew a great number of illustrations of dogs and cats for the Dokonoko app in addition to these icons. The lively little drawings are so cute, they made their way onto a cover because we want to carry these little critters everywhere.The cats and dogs scattered across the cover have all kinds of expressive faces to cheer you up just by carefully looking through them all. The cover is almost like a public square where all the animals come to gather, much like the app the design was created for. The deep blue colors against the bright yellow background is a color scheme that enlivens users of all ages. The cover material is made with cotton that’s warm to the touch. The Dokonoko logo on the interior pocket is also illustrated by Ohashi.
About the Dokonoko App: In Dokonoko, you can connect with pets around the world by uploading pictures of your pets and animals you meet to the online collection of cute expressions and silly poses. It’s fun to look through all the photos, and feels almost as happy as being in a room filled with cats and dogs. The app features a local area function that allows you to get to know cats and dogs in your neighborhood. It’s almost like making new friends! This function is also very helpful if you ever lose your pet, as it provides a way to instantly alert nearby users. The best part of Dokonoko is that you don’t have to be a pet owner to use it; users are welcome to post pictures of cats and dogs they meet, as well as artwork, crafts, and other specifically animal-related pictures.
