Designing necktie ribbon

I work full time as a graphic designer, and usually that means creating logos, brochures, business cards, websites, and other marketing materials for companies. But sometimes ribbon or textile projects come along—always a fun diversion. One example is this custom ribbon for Bella Bark and Meow. The company requested designs that resemble neckties, and after whittling down a pile of options, here's the final result. If your pooch studies at an Ivy League university, leads board meetings or plans to run for office, these are just the thing. Find these preppy dog collars here.

These are adorable! Would look nicely as a belt (on humans), too.

How cool!

Wow... fun! I can just imagine my 3 tom cats in them. They'd really impress the females!! ;)

Very cute and creative, nice job!

Those are great patterns. I want all of those ties as neckties for my 1 1/2 year old.

So cute! I wish our dogs could wear them, but pugs aren't supposed to have collars. Any chance of harness versions?

These are pretty cool! If only we had a dog.... :)

I was really interested in buying one for my cat. I thought the "Bella Bark & MEOW" would mean they would have some cat items... wrong. There's like A cat bed. I like the collars though, they're really adorable. My kitty Ian would've looked quite sophisticated with one... :(

What if I just want to buy the ribbon? Is that possible?

Ashley James said...

OH EM GEEEE!! I love these, these are awesome and I will buying them for all present and future dogs. Thanks!!!

Stephanie, sorry! Bella Bark and Meow doesn't sell ribbon by the yard; just ribbon already made into stuff.

Clair said...

These make me want a dog! I'm pretty sure my kitty is way too tiny for these.

Love love your blog...stop by here a lot, but have never commented before.

Great work! I'd love to wrap a gift with that ribbon...

A brilliant idea, congratulations!
My welsh terrier runs the house here so I think, given his position, he deserves a good looking collar-tie like one of yours

Their website also sells $350 crystal encrusted poop bag holders...

I am sad that I am not a dog.

Jessica Jones said...

Because you wish you could wear a necktie collar, or because you wish someone would buy a $350 poop bag holder for you? I wonder how much it would cost to bedazzle a toilet. Hmm.

According to Google, you can get a bedazzled toilet for the low, low price of $25,000.

It makes that poop bag holder look like a steal in comparison!
