Squirrel Fuel makes organic snack bars for kids, created entirely from fruits, nuts, and seeds. The company seeks to stand out among health-focused snack brands by conveying a joyful sense of play and wholesomeness.
The hand-drawn logo and whimsically illustrated squirrel characters differentiate Squirrel Fuel from snack brands that take a more literal approach in their presentation. Enlivening the brand with imaginative flare, the visuals also convey a commitment to hand-crafted goodness.
Branding, packaging & interactive
Fun, whimsical, energetic
Analyzing popular snack bars in the children’s health food market revealed an opportunity for packaging that stands out with fanciful illustrations and engaging characters. Perfect Kids, RX Kids, and CLIF Kid ZBAR present recognizable and trustworthy identities to parents, but their on-the-nose imagery is less engaging for kids.
Squirrel Fuel embraces a hand-drawn style designed to appeal to kids’ imaginations and parents’ desire for authentically wholesome snacks. Friendly squirrel characters on vibrant backgrounds present each flavor in a lighthearted, dynamic, and easily identifiable way.
The e-commerce site builds trust with appetizing photography, icons to clarify nutrition at a glance, and eye-catching testimonials. Subscription options and special offers are easy to spot.
A QR code on the back of each bar invites kids to enjoy a different game for every flavor. Adding value through fun, the games also encourage positive associations with healthy ingredients and boost engagement with the Squirrel Fuel brand.
