WHAT IS GOAT&BEAR, ANYWAY?
We are thoughtful creators who believe that every brand should tell a compelling story in order to make a powerful connection.
We work to craft meaning, develop tools, and design systems that consistently bring brands to life.

We build brands from the ground up.
By using visual tools that demonstrate category expertise, we empower clients and create true partners who become fierce advocates for the work. We explore a brand’s landscape, re-craft who it is, what it believes in, and how it acts in the world. While this is something consumers never see, it is the connective tissue that helps a brand develop, grow, and be cohesive across a variety of mediums.
WE'VE GOT HISTORY
We’ve worked for, collaborated with and been hired by a lot of great brands and agencies.

There is more to share.
However, the world of branding makes it complex to publish and share a lot of what we do. Brand strategies are private and sensitive, creative consulting means that other designers may take our ideas across the finish line, and we're pretty sure we can't give you any details about the Oprah project.
