Keep It Real Food Co.

Keep It Real Food Co. started as a company called Grain Expectations by the talented Katie Coleman who was (is) determined to create low-glycemic snacks that are friendly to diabetics. (She was diagnosed with Type 1 at age eleven.) I worked with her in the early days to come up with packaging she could digitally print in small quantities, and then when she moved to grain-free products I helped come up with the new identity and name "Keep It Real Food Co." All along we tried to maintain the small-batch, handmade feel through natural materials and monotone inks (white and chocolate). I was no longer involved once her products were in professional production, but she is still using many of the designs on the current packaging on Whole Foods shelves.
