The Campaign Toolkit
Create your own
Create your own
If you want to create a custom campaign, it’s no problem – we’ve made a simple toolkit for you to make your own Honest Food materials.
If you’re working with an agency, or if you have your own graphic designer, you can use the toolkit for you to make your own Honest Food materials. This means you can tailor the messages and images to fit your priorities and needs.
The toolkit takes you step-by-step through the six stages of creating your own materials:
If you’d like the complete toolkit and InDesign files to make your own assets, please fill in this form to request access.
Please note: You will need access to Adobe InDesign to open the toolkit files. If you don’t have InDesign, check out the ready-made materials which you can use.
Whether you’re creating communications in-house, or working with an agency, you’ll need to follow these 6 steps.
How long you have, and the channel you choose, will dictate which messages you can include. Use this chart to help you decide. All communications have to include the name, strapline or endline, and a call to action. Additional messages will vary depending on your objective, channel and time available.

Choose complimentary background colors by picking a flash of color from the imagery. You can use any color that appears on the photograph – it doesn’t have to be the main colour. Contrasting colors help make your design feel fresh and modern. You should also be aware of color associations in your region and choose colors based on what you – as a marketing or design professional – know will work well in your location.
Once you’ve been through steps 1-5 and made your decisions, you have everything you need to create communications – it’s just a case of putting the elements together.

Our logo is super minimal and straightforward.
Our hero versions (1 & 2) reinforce what we are saying – they’re transparent. These should be your first options – choose 1 or 2 depending on your system and space available.
On some communications, it may not be possible to use versions 1 or 2 – the transparent ‘HONEST’ may not be legible. If so, use option 3.
Where space is limited, for example on social or apps, use option 4.
Infographics are an effective way of visualising complex information in a simple and digestible way.
To achieve a consistent look and feel for charts and diagrams, and to reinforce our authorship, we always use our brand colours –drawn from food photography – and typography.
When using these infographics be mindful of how they work with other brand assets. The use of multiple infographics and photography can create a visual overload that is off-putting to audiences.
The use of simple iconography is an effective way to support messaging. You can also use them as stand alone graphics. These functional icons have been created with both print and digital in mind –all are viewable at small sizes. Please use this icon style as a guide to create more assets.
Beyond the visual campaign, there are hundreds of ways you could engage people with Honest Food, from guerrilla stunts to a short film, PR to in-store promotions. This section contains some potential ideas. We would love to hear how you’ve used the Honest Food campaign. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A hero film
Create a short, engaging film telling the story of honest food – and why it matters. This can work across any owned digital channels and be used by partners to spread the word.
Make people want to eat honest by creating empathy with industrially-farmed animals. Most chickens spend their lives in a cage the size of a A4 paper – scale that up to human proportions, create a ‘cage’ and invite people to stand inside it to experience life as a battery hen. Follow up with information on how they can eat honest and give animals a better life.
A PR index
Create an index of the world’s/a country’s most Honest Restaurants – those that use organic and seasonal/local/fair trade produce and potentially also pay their staff fairly and donate food waste to those who need it too. Use the index to generate PR and create a certification stamp for qualifying restaurants.
Partner with food retailers and services, e.g. supermarkets, Yelp, Deliveroo. Add an ‘Honest’ filter to shopping and ordering experiences.
Partner with a retailer and create an Honest Food aisle or section containing a range of organic and seasonal/local/fair trade food. Use point of sale and on-shelf communications to spread the Honest message.
Environmental guerrilla branding
Make people want to eat honest by showing the negative repercussions of choosing the alternative. Partner with a high profile street artist to create a series of provocative murals depicting the issues created by ‘Dishonest’ food, e.g. cocoa farming and child labour, inorganic food and pesticides. Sell this into the media for a photo-led PR hit.
