Francisca designed the layout for the first eight picture books created in early 2020. She leveraged real photographs taken of Rabbit the Dog from various points in Rabbit's life. Those books were proof-of-concept that were shopped to a few publishers before Darin founded Grand Dude Studios. Her goal is to entertain her grandchildren, who are all huge fans of Rabbit.
What started as a fun project while sitting at home turned into a discovery of untapped talent. Now I use Canva and design things for others all the time!
