Art Direction

Working closely with the North Shore Animal League America, we photographed shelter dogs that were up for adoption to feature on the labels. The dogs were displayed as the heroic element of packaging. Careful art direction of the photography was crucial to capture the right expression for each pup and maintain the balanced composition of the labels.

Comprehensive visual language

A full visual language was created including secondary logos, iconography, patterns, colors, font selections and accents. In order to maintain a cohesive brand impression, merchandising, displays, secondary ship cases and outdoor advertising were all developed in the studio. We also provided art direction and design consultation services for the website and social media.
