An Organic Family Farm Dedicated to the Global Empowerment of Farmers

Background

Pioneers of the organic farming movement, Jacobs Farm del Cabo began as a single family farm and grew to become an international organization with a social mission that operates under two brands.

Their marketing team chose us to help them update their branding and messaging in order to highlight the company’s ongoing market position in healthy food production, sustainability, and social change while creating a clear relationship between the two brands.

Evolving the Brand Hierarchy

We strategized with the Jacobs Farm del Cabo marketing team to establish Jacobs Farm as their primary brand—acknowledging the original family farm roots of the company.

del Cabo Brand Refresh

The sister brand to Jacobs Farm, the del Cabo brand was updated to give it a more modern treatment while retaining its market recognition. Inspired by packaging illustrations from the 1980’s, the new wordmark has a professional look with a retro feel. We retained this illustrative aspect in other elements of the brand extension such as vegetable icons.

Website Design

A Story-Driven Approach

We chose to clarify brand positioning, differentiation, and messaging through storytelling. This strategy transformed a standard business website into a brand experience that encourages site visitors to connect more deeply with the brand.

One element of the strategy is to highlight stories of their farmers, employees, social impact, and more using card-style callouts.

Products

At their core, Jacobs Farm grows and sells organic produce. The Products page was designed to feel warm and enticing while clearly communicating to buyers the breadth of products on offer.

Brand Association & Delineation

Little details give the site a unique feel. Section breaks on long pages call back to the Jacobs Farm logo. The hand-drawn aspect of the section breaks mimics the logo as well. Content cards with the sunrise element further unify the site.

The illustration style unifies the Jacobs Farm and del Cabo brands. The colors individualize that brands. Together, they create a brand system that consolidates the organization while honoring their domestic and international facets.

Creative Direction

We worked with their staff photographer to develop a shooting style consistent with the site design. We advised them to use a wooden background for their products to give them a uniform aesthetic and natural feel. To honor their long history we developed a strategy for using low quality photos, putting them into a small format carousel.

Scope of Work

The rebranding effort and new site helped Jacobs Farm del Cabo return to their roots as a social enterprise. They now have a fresh, modern look that tells their story of an international organic farming organization that supports Healthy Soils, Healthy Plants, and Healthy People.
