KUNE is a young food-tech startup that was established in Nairobi, the capital and the most developed city in Kenya, with a high concentration of students and workers, who need quality meals with reasonable prices. KUNE positioned themselves as the big kitchen of Kenya that spreads the mission of serving prepared meals with affordable prices for everyone.
KUNE needs a comprehensive brand identity for its first appearance on the market. A generic look with a warm feel is required to reflect their attribute of an average daily product for everyone, and to make it more friendly to reach a wider range of consumers. The biggest challenge was how to find a simple visual that makes people understand at their first look, but it needs to be unique for branding also.
We turned the sun into a big idea, as the belief of "Good food worth sharing". Just like the sun spreads light and energy to all creatures on the earth, KUNE shares good food to everyone and makes them delighted, hence connecting them together. To visualize that idea, we borrow the imagery of the sun ray to develop the visual identity as it is the perfect symbol to tell the story of spreading and connecting.
Logo: We used the image of the sun's rays as inspiration for the logo of KUNE. The letter "K" was created first, as it has the best association with the sun's rays, followed by the rest of the characters which have the same typeface's structure.
KUNE is also proud of its service to the meals on the consumers' table when it is still hot. That is why the process of delivering food directly from the factory to food lovers was illustrated in every paper bag to state that commitment.
