Wishbone Kitchen

Brand Identity
Art Direction
Mindy Nguyen, Creative Director
ilovecreatives Studio

Meredith Hayden, more famously known as Wishbone Kitchen 🍅, is to zillennials as Martha Stewart is to our mother’s generation. With a cultish following on social and TikToks going viral left and right, this private chef and celebrity recipe developer’s visual identity was due for some zesty new seasoning.

And in came me and ilovecreatives Studio. We set out to create an identity system that works any- and everywhere, for any- and everything Meredith could cook up—merch, site updates, book releases, cooking series, and other activations. With this in mind, we put on our design aprons and got cookin’. We made Meredith an expressive, hand-written logotype that’s bursting with silky, feminine attitude; typography and color chips that take influence from her playful and sunny personality; and iconography that emanates that Farmer’s Market feeling to go along with her index of recipes + freshly launched newsletter, the group chat.

Here they are. 

Give Meredith’s content a try. I recommend this one.
