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.
The 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.

Relationshapes
Every Zendesk product is designed to help you work with relationships, in both good and bad times. The marks of our products are designed to represent these relationships. Each mark is made of two simple shapes. They can do anything together: talk, walk, fight, agree, annoy, support, love.

Each relationship is as unique as each product. Each product identity comes in six formats. Use the one 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 Support
Support is a beautifully simple system for tracking, prioritizing, and solving customer support tickets. The mark shapes lean in to support each other. As the flagship Zendesk product, Support carries the original Zendesk green.
