Nobody was more excited about this new project than Niko, our Director of Barketing. Galloping Groomer contacted us in need of a strategic brand overhaul of the 40-year-old mobile dog grooming company. Using technology, and service, they set out to completely disrupt and streamline the grooming industry and create a new standard in pet care.

Hiring a stranger to care for your furry babies is a very emotional decision. The problem is that ‘logistics’ and ‘technology’ don’t quite give you the warm and fuzzies. They challenged us to create a fun, friendly, and gentle experience you receive from a local pet groomer while communicating the reliability and convenience of a new tech-based business model.
After an immersive discovery phase, it became clearly evident that their existing brand name was the source of a lot of frustration for them and their potential customers. Galloping Groomer received regular calls inquiring about equine services. The fear of bad online reviews forced them to ensure that they assisted these callers by giving them a contact list for horse groomers. We all collectively decided that a new name was in order.
After some serious name exploration, we landed on the name Pawgo. An invented yet experiential name that paints the picture of a life filled with adventure and wanderlust for our four-legged friends. Combined with our visual identity it became instantly recognizable as a mobile dog grooming service. No more horse grooming calls!
Being that the Pawgo Van was the brands most prominent visual it was important that it captured peoples’ attention. We wanted to make certain that anyone who saw the Pawgo vans immediately understood that their pets were in great hands and that we’re the cleanest in the business.
This may have been most adorable photoshoot we have yet to produce and it was a crucial piece to bringing this identity to life. Every pet owner appreciates and cherishes their dog child’s unique personality. Just like people, every dog is different in their own way. We decided to let that personality shine through the photography and design execution of this brand.
Someone will be in touch very soon.
