This is my contribution for the competition Mönsterjakten run by the Swedish magazine Nöjesguiden and the DesignTorget. The winning design will be made into a mug and sold in DesignTorget stores all over Sweden. My pattern is based on the fact that the German Shepard has been the most popular dog in Sweden since 1966, but in 2010 it was all of a sudden beaten in popularity by the Labrador Retriever. Another interesting fact is that Swedes seem to have pretty boring taste in dogs (sorry all German Shepard and Labrador lovers!).
