Kestrel Kitchen Nut Butters

Branding, Packaging, Illustration

Kestrel Kitchen is a small producer of homemade, gluten free nut & seed butters based in South Jordan, Utah.

In early 2022, Kestrel Kitchen reached out to Zeki Michael Studio to work on their range of nut and seed butter blends. We wanted to create something clean, fun and playfully unique. Early on in the project we decided that each and every nut butter product in the Kestrel Family should feel different from each other in character. Inspiration was taken from birds and their relationship with nuts and seeds. Each bird has a different character, but all give joy and spread a positive feeling to their surroundings. With this fun idea we set out to create a tasty and positive brand identity and illustration/label system featuring 6 bird types; Redstart, Goldfinch, Quetzal, Sunbird, Sandpiper and Ibis.
