01 Challenge

For their first brick-and-mortar location, Proud Hound enlisted BHDP as a creative partner to help develop and cement their vision, “Dignity for All,” in the growing neighborhood of Silverton in Cincinnati, OH. Proud Hound saw a niche in the coffee retail space to fill—a chance to build more than a coffee shop. They saw an opportunity to offer coffee drinkers, enthusiasts, and employees an ethical experience and culture throughout every stage of the coffee-industry process.

02 Solution

BHDP held visioning sessions with the Proud Hound team to gain a better understanding of their mission, vision, and challenges. For the café, Proud Hound desired a space that was both modern and relaxed while also vintage and flexible. Our designers delivered this specific look and feel through vintage tile design both behind the coffee bar and in the seating area, colorful geometric patterns, and concrete and wood materials throughout.
