Candice & Co. and Verb Garden, Inc. | Brand Strategy & Development
Nature’s One, the leader in organic nutrition for infants and toddlers, asked us to help refresh their brand and make it more pertinent to their target audience of parents who can’t or choose not to breastfeed. Their existing brand was positioned as the “first organic formula,” but didn’t go further to inspire parents to choose the brand because it would be the best for their baby.
We created a tagline that positioned Nature’s One not just as a great formula for infancy, but as “A better start…for life.” By showing that Nature’s One formulas contained everything needed for optimal health, growth and brain development, we made it clear that by starting with us, a child will be further ahead down the road.
Our goal was to position Nature’s One as a trusted friend and expert, who cares as much about baby’s health and well-being as her parents. We wanted parents to know that Nature’s One had expertise, authenticity, and a welcoming community where they could ask questions, get answers, and trust that their baby was in good hands.
WHAT WE DID
We refreshed the logo, fonts and color palette to be fresher and more appealing, and developed a story and visual campaign to guide the brand imagery, collateral and website development that showed kids doing amazing things…things that they could only do because they had had such a great nutritional start.

The Toasted Oat
We thrive on collaboration, high energy and playing with our clients’ products. We taste it. We smell it. We let it sit on our desk. We take it for a ride in the car. We take it on a walk. Toss it in our travel bag. Pop it in our mouths. Sprinkle it. Stack it on a shelf. We literally eat, play, style, and play some more. We perform this ritual until we reveal a products unique story.
In the case of The Toasted Oat, upon first glance you simply see a soft creamy outer package. Upon ripping open the bag you quickly discover the contents are quite different than any other granola you’ve ever experienced in your life. It’s soft and it’s chewy more like a crumbled cookie, full of delicious whole-ingredients, no preservatives, and gluten-free, a far cry from any other granola on the market.
Strategic story-teller Christine Myers, of Verb Garden, quickly landed upon the unique selling proposition and tag line for this unique granola. Creating the message, “We took the ‘crunchy’ out of granola.” And from there we were ready off designing, developing, and styling the brand look and feel; partnering with Demo38 on website development and Jones Photography to bring every aspect of The Toasted Oat granola website to life.
We had a great time working with Erika, and ate all the amazing, soft-and-chewy, home-baked granola our bellies could hold. Check out her website The Toasted Oat and DEFINITELY check out her Bakehouse Granola—it’s delicious!
