Brand Rants, Food By March 4, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

So excited to announce that we have been working on the brand image of Kindred Kitchens, although we loved our last logo, it had to go.

Misleading Branding misleads the public with their ‘Eat Fresh’ food campaign. It makes you question how fresh is ‘Fresh’ when most subs on the menu contain preservatives, GMOs, artificial colours, chemicals, refined sugars and more. It’s disgusting. Most subs have over 50 unlisted ingredients. A simple sandwich does not need fifty ingredients. It makes you wonder what are they putting…
