Founded in the late ’80s, Fresh Daily started as a retail store serving meat products until it closed its doors in the ’90s. Today, it is re-introducing itself as the family continues its legacy by offering a healthy and convenient solution to homemakers around the city. 
More than just another delivery service, Fresh Daily aims to assist modern-day families and busy individual effortlessly cook healthy meals at home. Fresh Daily helps members bring order to their homes through an intuitive and reliable AI system that allows them to organize meals and pantry needs, and adjust weekly budget. Through this process, Fresh Daily helps busy professionals and practical homemakers save time and money, cooking more often while promoting a healthier lifestyle.

We positioned Fresh Daily as a “meal planning assistant” and developed a brand bursting with personality and color that helped customers feel like they have better control of their home lives.

Fresh Daily’s vibrant visual system centers around the idea of freshness and sensibility. The brandmark is notable for its key attributes; fresh, healthy, and sensible. We developed delightful imagery, honest typography, and a vibrant yet sophisticated color palette based on their highly tailored, human-centered approach in the delivery space.

Custom illustrations feature happy families, home-cooked meals, and cheeky pantry ingredients. To make the brand assets adaptable, we designed the brand as a foundation for future growth.

The result is a food tech brand that illustrates a personalized customer journey that feels like a one-on-one relationship. We were also engaged in a post-project creative consultancy to help guide the execution of the brand from user testing, packaging to UX design.

“They were very thorough. They brought structure and discipline to our very “rough” ideas at that time. They took care of everything that we didn’t need to worry too much on follow ups and deadlines. We were able to focus on developing our technology and prototype.”

Toledo city is known for its rich history and magnificent natural resources that created thousands of livelihoods through tourism, agriculture, and products. Balik, which means to return, was the central focus of designing the identity.

We engaged in in-depth brand discovery meetings with Balik Toledo’s founding mothers and uncovered what ‘balik’ means to them. We left with a profound understanding of each member’s admiration for the city and convened to personify Toledo City, from the environment to culture and encounters.

Building off of our brand strategy, we decided that Balik Toledo’s visual system should be as flexible and dynamic as its vision — To champion Toledo as a multi-faceted city full of gifted individuals and overflowing natural resources. ​​​​​​​

‘Hemera’ came about when we played around with the idea of clients as royals taking a break from their queenly and kingly duties. Hemera is the goddess of daytime or the sun, a symbol for energy and vitality, which what the brand is all about – a place to relax, rejuvenate, and pamper oneself.

The identity is inspired by lightness and fluidity. As its namesake stands for life, the brand encourages a lifestyle of wellness and skincare through creating novel relaxation experiences unique to them.

It was a natural progression to use the sun as the emblem of the logo, which denotes strength and good energy. We paired it with a sleek sans-serif font for sophistication and professionalism. The color landscape is composed of earth tones with a more quiet shade of yellow to maintain the brand’s position of being gender-neutral.

The product packaging adapted a sophisticated design to continue the narrative of Hemera being a premium brand, because first impressions are very important. Clients are treated to a very personalized experience, as they can test out the oils prior to using them and choose what they like best.

The vacation home of the Enriquez family in Toledo was a place where they could pause and bond. They would devote their time into taking care of their land, bearing in mind their roles as stewards of the earth. 

The farmer’s hat is a symbol for the hard work, integrity, and diligence in tending their fields with their very hands. Bez Acre’s philosophy is to cultivate the earth with attention and gratitude.
Illustrations of farm essentials
Bez Acre is all about planting with care and harvesting with thanks. The verbal identity of the brand is modeled after a prayer – a gentle expression of gratitude to the Creator for everything. This significant aspect of the family’s belief system is also emphasized in the packaging. 
Earth tones and illustrations of farm elements like fruits, vegetables, animals, and tools, make the overall brand voice and identity rustic, warm, and full of care. As hearty as a cup of hot cocoa on a rainy day, the Enriquez family welcomes their customers into their family with open arms too.

Our intention is to create a brand that is inclusive and distinctive to other cannabis brands in the market. We designed a bright identity system that is inspired by the curiosity and playfulness of Ham—The Hemplorer. He’s a jumpsuit-loving monkey that travels to different universes to explore and learn about cannabis and its benefits. His blue pocket serves as a small portal that allows him to carry anything that he will need in his journey to space. The coil in his jumpsuit lights up when he sees the hemp he’s looking for, reminding him that it’s time to go home. ​​​​​​​
To strengthen the hemp community, Hempier organized the Space Explorer’s Club where members can learn tips on taking care of their hemp accessories and share their trip stories, allowing each individual to be who they are in a non-judging, welcoming, and collaborative environment.

Each brand in the Hempier dispensary is handpicked and curated with care by Ham. No matter the effect you’re after, Ham will have it ready for you. Enjoy the trip!

The bowl had a lot of significance in our approach to food styling and in the essence of the restaurant itself. The food would be served in a bowl because of its convenience. You could enjoy your food standing up, with or without sauce or soup. The design of the bowl is simple with a hint of elegance to keep it functional and looking nice.

Overall, the concept of the restaurant, which also drove the branding direction, was very much rooted in the richness of the Filipino culture. It was important that the language and look be consistently relatable, so the dish names had a little twist to keep it light and quirky. The illustrations are doodles on a chalkboard, as inspired by the idea to leave room for imagination and discovery.

THE BRAND

Spearheaded by 22 Tango Records in collaboration with Create Cebu, Grow Cebu Music was all about having an open conversation with the current generation of listeners about the local music community of Cebu. Through visiting different schools and universities, the campaign encouraged love for homegrown music and all its aspects; from what goes down behind the scenes to stories from thriving local singer-songwriters. All this was done as an effort towards sustainability.

The pre-existing logo was a face composed of a mix of musical elements. We reworked it according to the new young audience of the campaign. That face eventually developed into an official mascot we call, “Growbot.” Less mechanical and with brighter colors, the mascot’s function and aesthetics were crucial because it was going to be the visual identity of the campaign.

It was an awesome experience collaborating with such creative organizations like Create Cebu and 22 Tango Records. Out of that, we created a brand that would represent the wide-eyed energy of the campaign’s audience and the vibrant spirit of its subject – the local music community. The visual impact had to send the message of creativity and productivity through music appreciation.

The visual identity gave Grow Cebu Music a unique and memorable personality that was inviting and fun. It encouraged students to listen and engage with the speakers and performers. It also perfectly matched the smiles of the students.
