Doodle Dog Creative is a creative agency headquartered in Dallas and Austin, Texas, specializing in branding solutions, website design and development and search engine optimization. We create smile worthy concepts that capture personality and inspire brands.
We are so flattered that SPM Communications (nationally and regionally ranked PR firm) choose Doodle Dog to recreate their website, and really help give them an online presence that matched their success. SPM came to us with a long list big name clients – and an even longer list of success stories, but were in desperate need of a responsive website design which looked great, and functioned perfectly on all devices. Take a look! (for the full site – go to www.spmcommunications.com)
We were so honored to play a small part in the launch of what we’re sure will be a huge brand, Longhorn Vodka! The vodka recently launched and is getting a running start, horns first. The word is spreading and this line is fast becoming the choice for many vodka enthusiasts. Doodle Dog is proud to have helped create the logo and bottle design that is helping develop this products’ brand in the market. Take a look:
Longhorn Vodka is a strong, bold and masculine brand so we wanted to design an identity around just that. With A bit of edge and sleekness in the design, the smooth and polished silver horns complimented the logo perfectly.
The silver foil throughout the bottle make the horn and the other abstract elements of the bull pop of the page.
Here are a couple more shots of the brand in action.
Brought to you by the owner of the Impeccable Pig (another brand that we created a while back), Jenny has started her own fashion line called, JMarie! We created her logo, giving her brand a soft and feminine look, that would be memorable and easily identifiable on tags and more down the road. We wish her and her new line much success, take a look at her logo design below!
The hot summer heat always draws us to our own ideas of an oasis. Whether it be a lake, the beach or a refreshing dip in a pool, we sometimes like to let our imaginations run free if it means escaping the weather for a bit.
When considering a private oasis of your own, make sure to remember Johnston Pools. Located in the DFW area, Johnston Pools has been helping Dallasites create beautiful luxury retreats in their own backyards for over 15 years.
A new and improved website and brand identity was just completed for the elite custom pool company!
They wanted to showcase the experience and sophistication they posses when it comes to pool design, construction and remodeling. This is why we decided to use a classic and sophisticated look for their new brand identity and website. Refreshing royal blues, gold hues and chestnut brown were the chosen color palette for the site giving it an elegant and polished look. The photo gallery displays the elegance Johnston Pools has when designing pools, and can be sure to help you build the custom retreat you have always wanted.
Take a look at the newly refined look of their brand and website.
Kira Sauer came to us here at Doodle Dog with an exciting idea to create and execute a rebranding of her Dallas based home design and styling business. With the perfect mix of brainstorming, collaboration and creativity, Domaine Home Design was born.
An expressive and bold layout helps reflect Kira’s chic and sophisticated style. The monochromatic shades of mauve and grey undertones help accentuate the artistic flare that is put on every interior design project that Kira and her team take on.
As founder and principal designer of Domaine Home Design, Kira has transcended the interior design industry by bringing a refreshing approach to the table. Her designs cater to any clients’ needs whether they are interested in home owning or staging a home for future sale. She has been commended for her success in the quick and efficient sale of stage homes she has designed and has seen those spaces go on and off the market quicker than lightning after working together with realtors.
We had so much fun helping re-invent something as innovative as Domaine Home Design and are always inspired by entrepreneurs who do what they love and work on something they really believe in.
Take a look at what we are passionate about– we believe in helping our clients reach their full potential by creating brand images that not only reflect the people behind the business, but also help launch those business ventures onto a multi-dimensional medium for an entire audience to see.
Here are some shots of Domaine Home Design’s re-vamped brand identity:

How long have you been in business?I started in 2010, and was operating under the name Bliss by Kira for both Event Planning and Home design. With the help of Doodle Dog, I was able to re-brand the design side of my business, and I’m excited about launching Domaine Home Design.
What do you do?
Domaine Home Design specializes in residential design, staging to sell, and new construction planning services for homeowners, realtors, builders and developers.
Why did you start your business?
After getting a degree in business/entrepreneurship and spending almost 5 years in corporate America, I decided I wanted to follow my passions and do something that truly made me happy. That meant turning down some great opportunities, making sacrifices and hitting some bumps in the road along the way, but overall, following my heart has been the best decision I have ever made. What I have learned is that you can be good at something and not love it, or love something and not be good at it, but when you find that magic combo of being good at doing what you love, GO FOR IT! I get a thrill out of seeing firsthand how what I do positively impacts my clients’ lives.
What is unique about your business?
I help homeowners looking to design their homes to live in or to sell. For interior design clients, I make sure that I understand their lifestyle and what they are trying to achieve in the space. Some designers completely take over and design the space the way they see it, but I think it’s important for my client to be present in the space and for it to truly reflect who they are and how they will use it.
For staging to sell clients, I have an excellent track record selling homes faster and for more money. Every home I have staged has had offer and sold in less than 30 days.
What is the process like to work with you?
I start my process with a home consultation where I get to know my clients, their style, design challenges and lifestyle. From there we determine their expectations and decide how we would like to work together. Each client has different needs, whether they are designing to live in their home or sell it, we come up with a design plan that is best suited to them. From there, I manage every step of the project until completion.
Why did you decide to work with Doodle Dog?
Nikki’s portfolio of work really spoke for itself. I identified with her style and knew she was who I wanteddriving the creative look behind my new brand. When I first inquired about her services I was blown away by her organized process and professional marketing materials and documents. The way she presented her services to me as a potential client was exactly how I wanted to be able present mine. I had confidence that she would be able to get me there, and I was right! We were really starting from scratch, and it was Nikki’s creativity that gave me the direction I needed.
What’s your favorite part of your new look?
I love how clean and professional the website is. Nikki chose just the right colors and fonts, but I would have to say that my logo is my favorite. There’s nothing like seeing your business name in new lettering. I love that my new logo is simple, yet memorable.
About You:Tell us about your family.
I have been married for almost three years to my husband Chris, the most amazing and supportive man ever. Without him, this dream of owning my own business would not have been possible.
Do you have any pets?
We have 2 boy Maltese dogs, Xander and Quinn.
Where do you like to shop?
When it comes to home shopping I love Homegoods for great bargains, Wisteria, Z Gallerie, West Elm and Again and Again for vintage pieces. My trick to shopping is mixing and matching and never buying everything in one place. You don’t want people to walk into your home and think “I know exactly where she shops.”
Describe yourself and your style.
I have a passion for travel, trying new things and going places I’ve never been. My design style is a true product of that. I have developed a taste for European fashion and home design, and I love the contrast created by mixing elements of vintage, glam and modern.
Where do you find inspiration?
Fashion is a good place to look for design inspiration because most clothing trends run parallel with design trends. This year’s “IT” color is Emerald. You see it on the runways and in Design magazines. However, I am most inspired during my travels. I love getting ideas from storefronts on tiny little cobblestone streets and finding unique pieces that you can’t buy locally. My clients also inspire me. I often play off their interests when coming up with design ideas. I have a client that loves 1940’s movies and the bygone era, so we created an old Hollywood/vintage inspired movie room for him.
A Day in the life of you consist of:
What I love most about my business is that each day from week to week is very different. I might have a day at home when I catch up on emails, do some blogging and check out Pinterest for ideas, or I might be out shopping for clients, attending meetings or working on installations. I just try to start and end each day with gratitude!
