design
Brand identity system
Our brand identity was created using a complex methodology that combines a unique value proposition, expert design thinking, and potato prints soaked in finger paint. It is the skin that holds our corporate body together.
Relationshapes
It all begins with a simple palette — a set of building blocks that make up our logomarks.
We call these blocks “Relationshapes,” because every Zendesk product is designed to help you work with customer relationships, in both good times and bad times. Each mark is made of two simple shapes, representing two people. They can do anything together: Talk, walk, fight, agree, annoy, support, love. Each relationship is as unique as each product.
Use the logo format that best fits the space and nature of your project. As a simple rule of thumb, if you're using the marks on a Zendesk property, you can drop the Zendesk name. If the marks are standing alone outside of Zendesk, always use the Zendesk version.
Zendesk brand mark
The Zendesk brand mark is made up of the same shapes and is responsible for the broader brand story. Made of two contrasting shapes, it is balanced, sharp, and bold. It represents our multi-product company.
