Plant-based Diet

Plant-based food caterers providing gourmet meals to health-conscious eaters, helping them feel healthy and proud. Branch of Life is a family-owned business founded by Taj & Talibah Branch. Taj & Talibah have both battled health issues and testify as to how they utilized a plant-based diet as medicine. They have a belief that self-care begins in the kitchen, with organic plant-based ingredients.
 

Our studio's mission was to help Branch of Life become the brand it envisioned, by establishing a strategy & identity, and developing impactful customer touchpoints. 

 

Challenge

Identify the brand's purpose, position, differentiate the brand in the market, and launch the first line of products.

Outcome

Equilateral Studio helped Branch of Life focus their brand strategy. This led to the development of their identity. 

Creating The Strategy

We sat down with the founders, Taj and Talibah Branch, to craft the brand’s strategy and identity for the release of their new products. Over a four-hour facilitated meeting, we discovered the pain points of the new business. Additionally, we helped them prioritize the needs and goals of their business and its customers. 

Getting To Know The Customer

We achieve our vision and mission by educating and creating awareness. Additionally, supporting plant-based eaters, unhealthy people looking to address their health, pregnant or busy mothers, athletes, fitness coaches, and corporations. We also partner with local farmers and local businesses to work towards making our vision a reality.
