Outcome
Takeaways
This project is one of my favorites—I found that in creating both the branding and interface for viva vegan, I was able to represent a tone that comes across as fun, playful, friendly, and youthful—attracting the target users and allowing for the company to meet their goals.
The site makes ordering vegan Mexican food easy, presenting veganism in a positive light—encouraging vegans and non-vegans alike to get a taste of authentic Mexican food, made plant-based.
