Featured Design Contest: Epicurean Epiphany – Natural Food Logo

At Hatchwise, we love witnessing the extraordinary designs pouring in from all corners of the globe. This logo design contest centers on a virtuous food company and a soon-to-come book named Epicurean Epiphany, which proudly touts the tagline, “Simple. Real. Whole Food.” The company was looking for a logo to front their new book.

They aim to spark inspiration in others through natural whole food. The mission of the company is to unveil the connection between food and a fulfilling life, debunking the notion that healthy eating must be boring or synonymous with self-deprivation.

What Was Requested

The client’s request included the incorporation of the initials “EE” along with the full text “Epicurean Epiphany.” This logo will be used across various platforms, including Facebook, their website and printed materials and merchandise. They wanted to steer clear of ornate fonts and use an aesthetic that is distinctive, captivating, and memorable. They wished to stay with jewel tones or black and white.
