What is DogTooth Design?

A Minnesota-based graphic arts studio


DogTooth Design specializes in creating interpretive signs, like those found on nature trails or in exhibits. Using original illustrations, concepts are brought to life with distinctive styling and visual power. And if a message just needs some whimsy, that’s no problem either.

Every aspect of a project is addressed in a collaborative effort, from planning to writing to production. Decades of design experience inform a process of taking complex topics and distilling them into easy-to-understand narratives. Don’t just expect pretty pictures—these graphics will invite viewers to fully engage content and ideas.
