Zoyes | Barkside

Barkside, Detroit’s newest dog park, bar, & eatery, is a vibrant social spot where locals can bring their furry friends to unleash and unwind. Zoyes developed a brand system that reflects the fun, vibrant spirit of this tail-wagging watering bowl, and positions Barkside as a must-visit destination for people and pups alike.

The Barkside brand embodies the project’s bubbly spirit through its use of quirky typography, charming illustrations, and a friendly, easygoing tone of voice. Simply put, it’s fun doggone it!

Your Local "Watering Bowl"

As the first of its kind in Detroit, Barkside was in need of a messaging and communication platform that would help its audience understand exactly what it offers – for both human and canine patrons alike. Zoyes helped the client develop clear cut messaging that defines Barkside’s offerings without losing the playful, engaging tone that makes the brand unique.
