Who We Are & What We Create
An offshoot of the Julie Bluet brand, Barkley & Wagz is a family-run design studio based in Virginia. Inspired by the quirky escapades of our three dogs, Eli the German Shorthaired Pointer and Nutmeg & Lily the Yorkies, we conceived designs that highlight the varying personalities of dog breeds with colorful digital illustrations, graphics, and typography. These are presented on a wide array of high-quality products, from iPhone cases and notecards to apparel and wall art.
Barkley, Wagz, & Their Purpose
Featured on our main logo are two fictional fidos: Barkley & Wagz. The first is depicted in the forefront as the face of a happy canine of no particular breed. He is Barkley, and he represents the pups we own and shower with love. Wagz, the second, is the mysterious dog tail poking into the scene from the left. He is every other dog we enjoy: the ones our friends own, the goofy ones we behold via social media, the ones we dream of having... Together, Barkley & Wagz invite you to cultivate your appreciation for one of these canine clubs, or all of them combined, with a product designed by that same admiration. It is, after all, all about the dogs!
