Encha
Context
Encha is an artisan matcha business that harvests and produces high-quality, organically-farmed matcha to the masses. Rooted in ancient traditions where slow, meticulous care is paramount, Encha’s mission is to invite matcha lovers to experience the rich, complex flavor and enjoy the benefits of pure, clean energy.
Encha is looking for expanding its category-leading e-commerce brand.
Solution
We secured the standing on Amazon first and foremost with a brand facelift based on the prior design to retain product familiarity, followed by packaging optimization.
I was heavily involved from brainstorm to execution on the rebrand for Encha from identity to packaging.

Brand Guide
Familiar looks mindfully redesigned.
The new design system for Encha signals a familiar look with the heritage green palate from Encha’s original packaging, and further evolves the system by incorporating design elements inspired by the origin of Encha into a modern palate to speak to the brand’s heritage and tradition.
