Unfortunately, food waste is something we are all guilty of. Whether it be that we (I) purchase baby carrots over and over even though we (I) only seem to eat half the bag, or that we (I) constantly order too much takeout despite knowing that we're (I'm) not going to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
While it might seem like it's something we will never be able to put a stop to, WARR, a food maintenance storage for responsible consumers, is helping to combat the terrible food waste habits that we've been forming for years on end. Their branding is relatable in that it is chocked full of personality. Instead of coming across as an authoritative figure, an identity that would not gain respect for this specific brand, WARR consciously chose to be a friendly and relatable brand. With fonts that continuously rotate and fun illustrations, this brand doesn't take themselves too seriously even though their mission is of great importance. It's always refreshing to see branding that's carefree when you'd expect it to be heavy.
