Pop Kulture Ferments

Branding, Label Design & Website

Pop Kulture is about sharing nourishing plant-based food and the spreading awareness about the benefits of fermentation. As a start-up business, Pop Kulture needed help with their brand identity, website, and social media marketing materials.

Tessa is the founder and sole trader of Pop Kulture Ferments, where she shares her passion for gut health and fermentation. A true believer in its benefits, she educates other people through fermentation workshops while continuously experimenting new funky flavours for the public to enjoy so they can benefit from amazing gut health.

As an upcoming, new business, Tessa needed branding and marketing material to kickstart her business, Pop Kulture Ferments. She wanted her brand to showcase her personality being down-to-earth, environmentally conscious and creative as well as appeal to her target audience. Sure, it seemed easier for her to do it herself, but as a sole trader, she didn’t have much time as she was managing everything else at the same time.

We worked closely with Tessa to develop a concrete branding kit that would fit her down-to-earth values and light hearted personality. The usage of purples, oranges, creams and pinks communicates a sense of maturity, femininity and earthiness which reflects Pop Kulture Ferment’s business values. With hand-lettering to further show organic and naturalness relating to how Tessa hand makes her own products. As Pop Kulture Ferments specialises in plant friendly fermentation, it was important for us to present the brand that would appeal to her target audience who are health and environmentally conscious, as well as an audience who shares the same value for quirkiness and creativity.

As Pop Kulture Ferments started gaining popularity, Tessa found that she had less time to spend on developing her own website and had us develop a website that would act as an information hub to for Pop Kulture! Shawn crafted a website that fulfilled this purpose while also translating the brand into the website design. This helped give back to Tessa allowing her to spend time on what she loves doing most: fermenting. Taking the stress away, we developed a custom one page website with a custom animation to add to Pop Kulture Ferment’s quirky personality while also tying it back to what Pop Kulture Ferments is all about!

I helped to further establish Pop Kulture Ferment’s brand with easy-to-use social media templates. Being a sole trader while working part-time makes Tessa’s life very busy and so having social templates she can easily use allows for her to make content while still looking on-brand and keeping consistency. I created patterns, layouts for different templates which gave her the freedom to customise the content by changing colours, backgrounds, images, etc. I used Indesign & Illustrator to create the different components such as the backgrounds and the patterns and then Google Slides to put the text together so that it is easily editable for her to use.

I’ve been working with Plus 4 Creative to do my branding and I’m beyond happy with the logo and style guide they made for me. They also made me some great social media templates and a flyer template that I can easily change and adapt to re-use again and again. I have a tight budget and I was hesitant to spend money on design work but I’m so happy that I did and it has definitely helped my business to grow as well as making it much easier and faster for me to make posts/labels and more. They’ve been so friendly and amazing to work with, great listeners who
listened to what I wanted and made it a reality. I recommend them to all my friends and fellow small business owners. 10/10!
