DOTT

NO MORE LOST PETS

Dott was created by a group of pet lovers to help you locate your pets if they ever get lost. It creates a virtual leash, if they get lost, our community will help you find them.

Current Identity

Problem

Dott needs a complete update to their identity, their trademark is unmemorable and unclear while establishing little to no brand presence. Their mobile app, crucial to the recovery of lost pets, is not user friendly or attractive.

Solution

Dott provides you with a community which aids in the capture of your lost pet! This feature is hinted at by the arrangement of pins in a close knit circle. The identity is bright, welcoming  and natural to emulate the essence of our furry companions.
