Aleph Farms

Turning steak on its head


Brand Identity, Digital Design, Brand Voice


Food & Beverage, Green Tech

The world’s first cultivated steaks grown from the cells of Lucy, an Angus cow happily living in California, is the short version of what Aleph Farms is here to deliver. To get there, though, the brand brings together knowledge from seemingly opposing categories. (Think: traditional food preparations + cutting-edge tech.) When Aleph asked us to create not just their parent brand, Aleph Farms, but their first product brand, Aleph Cuts, we knew we’d have to whip up an innovative new recipe all our own—and one that could encapsulate both the strong and subtle flavors of both brands.

A new brand that harnesses Aleph Farms’ creativity, innovation, and tradition to create impactful solutions for a better future.

Writing is the foundation of modern civilization — and Aleph is the first letter of one of humanity’s oldest writing systems, represented by an ox. The source of civilization also relied heavily on agriculture and the domestication of animals. Today, this new era of cellular agriculture brings us to a new era of how we eat and live. The name, Aleph Farms, connects us to the very roots of civilization, as we honor traditions and evolve them to meet the needs of modern society.

Our symbol illustrates the story of our name, our mission to turn food on its head, and the innovation of our products.

To create the Aleph logo, we flipped the first letter of the alphabet to (re)create an ox. The action of “flipping” lays the foundation for the rest of the identity, allowing us to make visible all the ways that Aleph flips expectation, using motion, photography, copy and more. Strategically, the ox head symbol becomes a sort of cattle brand or trademark symbol that can be used anywhere and everywhere, signifying the way Aleph products can seamlessly integrate into everyday meal settings.

Both visuals and voice were adjusted between the two brands to speak to distinct audiences: Aleph Farms represents its place as cellular agriculture leaders while Aleph Cuts addresses an exclusive, adventurous tastemaker audience.

Aleph Farms and Aleph Cuts are two distinctly different brands within the same family.

As the parent brand, Aleph Farms embodies the larger, mission-based origins of the company. We used straightforward type, a minimized color palette and a mix of editorial and lifestyle imagery to bring it to life.

Aleph Cuts is the first product released under the parent brand, embodying flavor, excitement and desire, as expressed through color, typographic play and editorial food imagery.
