THE DOGGIE DO
A Mardi Gras for Mutt & Man
Concept, creation and production
Our love of dogs led us to devise, design and co-produce Dublin’s first canine festival. We like to call it ‘Electric Picnic for Dogs’. Over 3 years thousands of people and hundreds of their best fur-iends joined us for Doggie & Soul chill out, Doggelgangers look-alike competition, The Cultured Canine workshops and talks with artists and makers inspired by dogs and our centrepiece - a dog (and human) dress up competition to crown of The Dog of Dublin.
The Doggie Do has featured on the Late Late Show, Lyric FM, Today FM, Newstalk, Cara Magazine, The Irish Times, The Examiner and The Sunday Times and more.
The Doggie Do 2016 was supported by Dogs Trust and featured a headline slot for John Grogan, author of ‘Marley & Me’.
The festival aesthetic is particularly unique, eschewing as it does the basic, ‘family-friendly’ approach that is usually deployed in the canine event world.
Our mascot, Ramone, is inspired by Japanese character design and the look-and-feel is stripped-back, graphic and immediate.
