Graphic Designer Claire Chew was inspired to make a line of luxury keepsakes for pet owners after the loss of her own dog, Sophie.
For Claire, Sophie was a fresh sight for sore eyes after a long day's work - an endless supply of laughter, joy, loyalty and friendship. They were inseparable and together while working, camping, hiking and even shopping. There were milestones and many celebrations along the way. The two celebrated holidays together...4th of July camping trips, Christmas with her doggie stocking lining the mantle and the milk bone Easter egg hunt with dog park pals in the backyard. Sophie was a gentle reminder of the simpler things that mattered. Through Sophie's passing, Claire transferred her sadness and creative passion into creating a line of exclusive collection of luxury keepsakes to cherish, celebrate and commemorate a pet's impact on our lives.
With over twelve years in the graphic design industry, Claire has been involved in everything from early stages of concept development to executive level operations and management of leading consulting and development companies. She has also donated many design hours to nonprofit clients. And aside from volunteering for local animal rescue groups, Claire has committed a portion of all proceeds from Luxepets to be donated to various animal charities.
She currently resides in Venice, California with her 2 dogs, Lulu and Casey.
