Meet The Team

We breathe life into your brand’s mission, vision, and values with the power of visual storytelling.

Branding and design is about much more than pretty icons, graphics, and patterns. It’s one thing to have something that’s interesting to look at, but your brand is more than what’s on the outside.

Your brand is your image in the eyes of your customers. It’s the experiences they have with you and tell their friends and family, and the build-up of small, seemingly insignificant interactions with you that create the story of your brand.

That story is big and bold. It’s beautiful, bright, and fun. That story is yours to tell.

Dox Design is the team to support you in telling that story to the world. Yes, we love all things dogs and design (seriously, feel free to send us all your dog pics at any given moment!)

 

But we’re here for so much more than that, too.

Working with our clients to tell their one-of-a-kind brand story with compelling and thoughtful visuals from top to bottom is what really lights our fire. From your foundational branding elements like your logo, color palette, typography, and patterns to your messaging and tagline, to your packaging, guides, email templates, and social media presence, our mission is to be your trusted design partner every step of the way, so you can take your mission-driven business (pet-related or not!) to heights you never imagined possible.

Our approach to branding and design is rooted in four main principles:

KINDNESS

Think of the sweetest, most loving dog you’ve ever met: that’s what we strive to be every single day. We infuse kindness and understanding into every step of the way in our process—and not just to our clients, but to our fellow fur friends, industry professionals, and followers. This principle translates into our design by ensuring our clients’ voices are truly heard and reflected across their brand.

INDIVIDUALITY

While we have a proven, tried-and-true process for branding and design, we believe in leaving room for flexibility and individuality in the process. Just like every dog has their own unique personality, our clients do, too—which is why you won’t find cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all solutions here, fur friend. Every brand we design is 100% unique to you and you alone, because there’s truly nobody else out there like you!

FUN

If there’s no room for fun in the process, we don’t want it. Sure, branding is hard work… but we not only do we wanna work like a dog, we wanna PLAY like a dog, too! We believe in balancing our professionalism and expertise with room to explore, get curious, and play—and doing it in collaboration as a team with our clients!

INCLUSIVITY

We’re proud to run with a diverse pack of business-owners in every aspect of the word. It’s no secret that we have a deep appreciation and passion for supporting pet brands, but we’re here to support ALL types of businesses whose values align with ours, and are strong in their mission and purpose. No matter your industry, skin color, sexual orientation, gender identity, or background, if you’re a good human (and your business does good for others), then we’ll likely get right along.

Are you feeling our vibe

Sound like the kind of approach you can get behind?

Hey, Hi, What’s Up

Meet The Dox Design Team

Emma Low,
CEO of Dox Design

I’m Emma, and I am so excited to be stepping into the role of CEO at Dox Design!

First off, I just want to thank the incredible team and community for the warm welcome. Kaila has built an amazing company known for its innovative spirit and client dedication. and this is a dream come true, and I’m ready to grow the business to new heights. A little bit about me: I’ve been a professional photographer and business owner for 8 years and worked in digital marketing for almost just as long.

Professionally, I’m passionate about cultivating a culture that celebrates creativity, growth, and radical candor. (Personally, I love documenting my family’s misadventures, vintage clothes shopping, traveling with my husband Steve, and an iced mocha with an extra shot of espresso.)

Paris Trumbower, Designer

Currently Working From Wisconsin

Your whimsical Graphic Designer with a chaotic cat sidekick. Based in Wisconsin it is no surprise they wound up in a town full of ghosts, because if she had to describe herself as a designer it would be something along the lines of,
“witchy, whimsical, Midwest, botanist.” Don’t let the spirits scare you though because they’re all about bringing life into the world through art.

Alexandra Villalón,
Designer

Currently Working From Flordia

Happiest with a pencil in her hand, Xan has an eye for the bold and edgy—two qualities you’ll see prevalent in her designs. Her absolute favorite part of her design process is exploring the functionality of patterns and typography, another element you’ll notice in her work. Aside from Dox, you can find her monkeying around with watercolors and chowing down on vegan junk food.

Lauren Merkel, Designer

Currently Working From New York

A passion for peach nectar and a walking Beatles encyclopedia, Merk seeks to evoke curiosity in life. Her degree in Human Centered Design allows her to explore multiple facets of the design industry, ranging from architecture to gallery graphic design. When she’s not on her daily Dox grind, you can bet your sweet bippy Merk is practicing brewing the perfect pour-over to pair with her favorite podcasts.

Christina Jackson , Designer

Currently Working From Manchester, UK

Hey, it’s Designer Christina, and this is my moody BSH sidekick, Mila!They say pets reflect your energy, so it’s no surprise because I’m the designated black cat in a group full of Golden Retrievers. Based in the drizzly and gloomy Manchester, UK, mine and Mila’s moody vibes fit right in. Despite the weather, I’m all about working with cheerful, happy colour palettes. I’m on a mission to sprinkle my creative magic, turning client ideas into vibrant, visual wonders that bring a positive burst to their lives. Moody days in Manchester, but my creative palette is bursting with colour and cheer!
